Cordy Glenn signed with the Bills, giving the team eight of its nine 2012 draft picks under contract. Glenn played guard and tackle at Georgia, starting 50 games of the 53 in which he played. The Bills are planning to try him at tackle, where they haven't been able to replace Jason Peters since trading him to Philadelphia in 2010. At 6-6, 345 pounds, scouts are stunned by Glenn's light feet and athletic ability. He doesn't always play to his elite skill level, but the Bills view him as a potentially elite blocker in the NFL based on his combination of height, bulk, long arms and footwork. Chris Hairston, a fourth-round pick from Clemson in 2011 with similar size -- 6-6, 341 -- is currently listed first on the depth chart at left tackle. General manager Buddy Nix endorsed Hairston as more than capable before the draft, and Hairston started seven games last season. "I'm going to make this clear, we think Chris Hairston can play left tackle for us and win,&...

Brian Moorman’s job as starting punter for Bills is not safe

Brian Moorman was 5th in the league with 48.2 yards per punt last season, though only 20th in net yards per punt with 38.6. Still, one would expect his job to be safe for next season, especially after the Bills did not draft a single punter. However, according to the Buffalo News, Moorman will face competition from undrafted rookie Shawn Powell in camp. I would expect Moorman to...

Buffalo Bills Fantasy Football Projections

QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Buffalo) There’s upside to be had here. In 7 games before going down with a rib injury last year, Fitzpatrick threw for 1739 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions. After 7 games, Fitzpatrick really struggled, but that rib injury, as well as injuries to offensive players like Demetress Bell, Eric Wood, and Fred Jackson, were probably largely to blame. Over...

Buffalo Bills extend RB Fred Jackson

There was a time last season when the Bills were 5-2 and Fred Jackson was a legitimate MVP candidate.

Vince Young is behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick “100 percent”

BUFFALO—Vince Young continues to cement himself as the second-most talked about backup QB in the NFL.

The art of BSing a press conference

This seems to be the offseason for press conferences in Buffalo. By my count, we've had 5 player conferences (Stevie Johnson, Mario Williams, Mark Anderson, Stephon Gilmore and Vince Young), not to mention Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey's multiple cameos. As much as I love the Bills signing players, I can live without those pressers. Cliche, simpleton questions and predictable...
