Beckham has disclosed on Twitter that he “really played the [more]View the full article

Bills safety Jordan Poyer‘s desire for a new contract led him to skip the voluntary portion of the team’s offseason work, but he returned for the mandatory minicamp and it doesn’t sound like he’s planning to skip out of any part of training camp.

  6. Bills edge rusher Greg Rousseau played college football at the University of Miami and he was back in town recently for an alumni event at the school, but Hurricanes football wasn’t the only local issue on his mind.

  11. Bills quarterback Josh Allen turned in two of the greatest playoff performances in NFL history last season, first against the Patriots and then against the Chiefs.

  12. Ed Abramoski, who was the Bills’ head athletic trainer for most of the franchise’s history, has died at the age of 88.

  13. After falling to the Chiefs in a thriller during last season’s divisional round, the Bills are considered one of the league’s top contenders to win the Super Bowl in 2022.

Rookies will report to work for [more]View the full article
  15. The Bills cut Cole Beasley when the new league year started in March and that means someone else will be filling the safety blanket role that Beasley often played in Buffalo’s passing game. Beasley caught 231 passes and picked up 124 first downs for the Bills over the last three seasons by being in the [more]View the full article
  16. The Bills signed Tavon Austin earlier this month, adding a veteran receiver with significant experience.

  17. A few years ago, Case Keenum and Stefon Diggs combined to form one of the best plays of the season with the Minneapolis Miracle.

  24. Bruce Smith is tying to thread the needle. On one hand, he doesn’t like that the supporters of Tony Boselli propped up a borderline case for the Hall of Fame case by pointing to Boselli’s performance against Smith in a playoff game. On the other hand, Smith has no issue with Boselli personally. “Tony and [more]View the full article
