All QB Alex Tanney wanted was "an opportunity to get into a camp" and, thanks to the Buffalo Bills, he now has that chance.
When you're from a small, Division III school like Monmouth College, located in western Illinois and home to only 1400 or so undergraduate students, sometimes a player will have to do something special to get noticed. Sure, Tanney may have set the all-time Division III record for yardage by a QB (14,429) and he may also hold the overall NCAA record for touchdown passes (157 in 5 seasons, with only 30 INTs), but when your toughest divisional opponents are schools like Albany and Duquesne, a little extra may be required to get some love.

His self-assurance was evident during the Bills' rookie minicamp this weekend, when the third-round pick out of North Carolina State provided a simple answer to what numerous NFL draft publications might have missed in...
A few days ago the Bills posted a video that’s a mini documentary of sorts that gave a glimpse inside the Bills draft process. It was bit propaganda-y, but Buddy Nix made a comment that made our ears perk up, and offered some insight into the difference between media/fan draftnik’n and player evaluation and how the pros do it.

The Buffalo Bills have signed free agent quarterback Vince Young to a one year contract worth $2 million with an additional $1 million that can be earned in incentives. While many feel as if Young was brought in to challenge incumbent starter Ryan Fitzpatrick after the Harvard product struggled mightily after signing a lucrative deal, the better odds are that Young fails to make...

What are they thinking?” After dismissing my students for the weekend I pulled my phone out and simply replied, “Great football move.” Yep, I used the word great.
