Buffalo Bills finish the draft with another troubled past

The Bills had two 7th round picks in this years NFL Draft and they selected OLB Randal Johnson and OT Seantrel Henderson. The 7th round typically doesn’t see many superstars come out of it, its a lot of times the round where teams draft a kicker or take a chance on someone with a troubling past which would be the case for Seantrel Henderson. There is tremendous talent that falls...

This offseason for the Buffalo Bills started with a couple Linebacker free agent signings. In 2013 we saw additions to the Bills defense in Kiko Alonso, Manny Lawson and Jerry Hughes. This Bills defense had a record setting Buffalo Bills in terms of sacks, and they have already made two additions to that defensive firepower this off-season. First it was Keith Rivers, and then the...

Bills may move Manny Lawson to defensive end

Might the Buffalo Bills move Manny Lawson to defensive end? It sounds a little strange on the surface considering Lawson was one of the premier coverage linebackers in the NFL during the 2013 season, but a transition to the 4-3 defense may force the move. With coach Marrone saying at the league meetings last week that they’ll primarily be a 4-3 front defensively I do see Hughes...

Mailbag: the Draft, the Ralph and DeSean Jackson

Should the Bills trade up in the draft?- Eric from Rochester This question is tough to answer, because with most trades it depends on who we are giving up. In my opinion the Bills should not lose any draft picks in any possible trades, only try to gain them. But in a scenario where the Bills their number one pick and a player like Manny Lawson who is now the odd man out at OLB with...

Buffalo Bills LB corps needs one more

Doug Whaley and company have made some pretty aggressive moves in the early stages of free agency and the Bills LB corps is a strong reflection of that. Complementing sophomore stud Kiko Alonso, both Brandon Spikes and Keith Rivers have been HUGE pickups for the Bills.

Bills don't have to be dizzy in revolving D

Even the Cleveland Browns haven't had it this bad. The Buffalo Bills have run through more defensive coordinators over the past four years than any other team in the NFL, complicating their player-acquisition process through both free agency and the draft. While their defensive schemes have changed each offseason since 2011, it's not all bad news. In hiring Mike Pettine...

Manny Lawson Could Be The Next LB To Go In Buffalo

Mike Rodak of ESPN.com writes that the Bills’ recent decision to release OLB Willie Jefferson could be a bad sign for veteran OLB Manny Lawson. Rodak mentions that the two players have a “similar body type and style of play,” which is notable given that the reason for Jefferson’s release was because he wasn’t a fit in new DC Jim Schwartz’s defensive scheme. The Bills...

Buffalo Bills: A Position-by-Position Primer to Free Agency

A year ago, the Buffalo Bills' new regime made a handful of heady moves necessary to complement the team's "building through the draft" mentality. None of the free-agent signings took the world by storm at the time, but players like Leodis McKelvin, Manny Lawson and Alan Branch were valuable assets both last season and moving forward. The Bills know their future...
