Gailey's initial message resonates with Bills

Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson's eyes light up when reminded of the time coach Chan Gailey asserted himself in the face of hecklers at the close of his first training camp two years ago. For a hard-luck team searching for direction and identity, Gailey's message was welcome. He informed the hecklers that if they ''dog'' one player, they dog all of them...

Bills could cut Dwan Edwards, Terrence McGee

Every year at final cuts, there are several players who are experienced veterans who get cut, for various reasons. These guys are normally swooped up pretty quickly to play roles on other teams for less money, sometimes much less. Two of these guys for the Bills could easily be Dwan Edwards and Terrence McGee. McGee restructured his contract earlier this offseason, signing a 2 year...

Back still a bother for Bills DT Torell Troup

When Torell Troup elected to have back surgery in December, the Buffalo Bills defensive tackle thought it would help further his career. Some eight months later, he isn't so sure it was the right idea. Troup acknowledged this week he's had second thoughts about why he had the operation in which two discs were fused to repair a minor fracture in his spine. The trouble is...

Buffalo Bills release OL Michael Jasper

The Buffalo Bills have released offensive lineman and former seventh-round pick Michael Jasper three weeks into training camp. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 375 pounds, Jasper spent much of his rookie season last year on the Bills practice squad before being activated for the final game. Jasper was regarded as a raw, untested talent, when the Bills took a slight gamble in drafting him...

Buffalo Bills Release Lineman Mike Jasper

The biggest gamble of the 2011 NFL Draft has not paid off for the Buffalo Bills, who have released offensive lineman Mike Jasper. The Bills used a seventh-round pick last year on Jasper, a 6' 4", 450-pound two-way player out of tiny Bethel College in Tennessee. He was only on the active roster for one game last season, during which he never took the field. After spending...

Training Camp Edition: Buffalo Bills Style

Buffalo Bills Offense Knows It Has to Play Better

The Buffalo Bills first preseason game wasn’t the best for the team offensively. Fans know it. Coaches know it. Players know it. And now the players are vowing to be better the next go-around.

Buffalo Bills: Preseason Game 1 Recap

After the first preseason game of the 2012-2013 season, the Buffalo Bills showed us one thing: They’re not ready yet.  Not even close. In the opening loss to the Redskins, the Bills had 14 penalties for 134 yards. The funny thing is that if Ryan Lindell didn’t miss a 22-yard field goal, the Bills would’ve won the game.  You can try and argue by saying, “Big deal, it...

Stevie Johnson Wants to Show Buffalo Bills He Belongs

Stevie Johnson didn’t think he would be playing with the Buffalo Bills after the 2011 season. While speaking with Yahoo! Sports, the wide receiver said he believed his time with the team was over after being held out of the season finale for an excessive-celebration penalty. “At that point, I was thinking I was done [...] [[ This is a content summary only.

Money talks and the Bills' defense must walk the walk

Now that the Buffalo Bills own the highest-paid defensive player in league history, their defense needs to be better in 2012. Not should be better. Not could be better. It needs to be better. But, ah, hold on a minute, I was always told by my coaches and inspiration posters in my high school hallways that there is no I in team. One person can't do it on their own, I was told...
