Report: Jairus Byrd looking for Eric Weddle money

According to WGR 550 in Buffalo, the Bills and safety Jairus Byrd aren’t currently working on a new contract and it would be a big surprise if both sides had something done by Monday’s deadline. “I would be completely and utterly shocked if there was a deal done by Monday,” said one league source familiar with the team. “There are no talks going on. Someone would have to...

Are the Buffalo Bills the NFL version of the movie “Groundhog Day”

What year is it again?  I feel we have already told this story of what the Buffalo Bills need in the off season. This situation sounds a lot like the well known movie “Groundhog Day” where every day was the same.  Well it is a new year, but they have the same needs; a quarterback, wide receivers and defensive front seven help.  New General Manager Doug Whaley and new Head...

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone would ‘be a fool to’ choose E.J. Manuel over Kevin Kolb

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone wants to choose between quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and E.J. Manuel before the end of camp. “As a coach the earlier it can get done the better,” said Marrone, 48, who Buffalo hired in January. “I’d be a fool to sit here and say otherwise. At what point?

Safety Jairus Byrd and Buffalo Bills far apart on contract with Monday deadline looming

According to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, the Buffalo Bills and safety Jairus Byrd are ‘far apart’ and it is unlikely a deal will be done by Monday’s July 15 deadline.

However, he hasn’t signed the tender and the...

Bills' T.J. Graham trying not to be so skinny

T.J. Graham has carried around the title of "speedster" since coming out of N.C. State last year thanks to his 4.34 40-yard dash time. And also thanks to his frame.While the majority of NFL wideouts eclipse 6 feet and are heavier than 200 pounds, Graham is currently listed at 5-11, 188. This offseason, he's looking to change that.

Marrone is Whaley’s Coach, Not Buddy’s, Says NFC Executive

From a very good Albert Breer piece comes an interesting tidbit on the Buffalo Bills front office structure that is now lead by Doug Whaley.

It’s not news, but the fact that the league knew this transition was coming is telling that Buffalo had it sites set for...

NFL.com’s Marcell Dareus Story Overblown
