How long should the Buffalo Bills wait before letting other players use number 95?

How long should the Buffalo Bills wait before letting other players use number 95?

Should they let anyone wear the number again? After his successful 13-year career, Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams finally called the 2018 season his last. Williams was the bright spot on a team that went through a lot of gloomy seasons. Despite the teams struggles, he stuck it out in Buffalo when he could have gone elsewhere and he was rewarded in 2017, when the Bills broke their playoff drought. Williams is going to be on the Bills Wall of Fame, but he won't be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and retiring his number is probably unlikely. As it stands right now, the Bills...

Bills rank among teams with most needs according to Sports Illustrated

Bills rank among teams with most needs according to Sports Illustrated

Thankfully the Bills have plenty of cap space and 10 picks to address those needs! The Buffalo Bills took a step backwards in terms of their record during the 2018 season, finishing 6-10 and experiencing a three-game decline from 2017’s playoff-bound team that went 9-7. That said, many Bills fans feel optimistic for the team’s future, with a slew of young talent like quarterback Josh Allen, cornerback Tre’Davious White, linebackers Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, and more on the roster. With ten selections in this April’s NFL Draft, including the No. 9 overall selection, and...
Jerald Hawkins hopes injury issues are behind him heading into final year under contract

Jerald Hawkins hopes injury issues are behind him heading into final year under contract

With just five regular season appearances in three years with the Steelers, the young tackle will need to avoid ending another season on injured reserve if he hopes to remain with Pittsburgh in 2020. Heading into 2019, there is perhaps no other position on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster with more depth and experience than offensive tackle. With both starters due to return and a number of promising young prospects with experience in reserve, the Steelers might well be set at tackle for some years to come. However, if that future is to include 2016 fourth-round draft pick Jerald Hawkins, the...

Close encounters of the Buffalo Bills kind

Close encounters of the Buffalo Bills kind

We took to Twitter asking Bills fans to share their most random player encounters. Sometimes as fans, we tend to forget that athletes, coaches, staff members and even the owners of our favorite teams are mostly just regular people like us. Sure, they have wealth and fame and some drive vehicles we could never dream of owning, but many of them still live fairly normal lives. The staff at Buffalo Rumblings began a conversation on this very topic, asking each other about some of the random places they’ve encountered a member of the Buffalo Bills. Sean Murphy, one of our editors, responded...

Bills release Charles Clay

Bills release Charles Clay

The Bills opened up $4.5 million of cap space with the release. Charles Clay has been released from his contract with the Buffalo Bills, after four years with the team. The team announced their transaction late Friday afternoon. Clay was due to receive $9 million in 2019 for the final year of his contract, but the Bills will clear $4.5 million of that cap space with his release. Clay had his worst professional season in 2018, with 21 receptions for 184 yards and no touchdowns for the Bills. He started twelve games last year and ended the season as a healthy scratch. In his Bills career,...

On the latest edition of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast, host John Boccacino is joined by co-host Anthony Marino to break down the contract of G/C Spencer Long, and to look into their crystal ball to identify players poised for a breakthrough in 2019, and those whose play could regress next year.

All-22 review: Buffalo Bills cornerback Lafayette Pitts

All-22 review: Buffalo Bills cornerback Lafayette Pitts

We take a glimpse at special teams mainstay and primary backup corner Lafayette Pitts Lost in all the hubbub of Spencer Long was the fact that the Buffalo Bills re-signed cornerback Lafayette Pitts for one more year. Pitts was a mainstay on special teams and saw spot duty on defense. In two separate games injuries and other circumstances gave him extended auditions. The Bills must have seen something they liked, so we took a look to get to the bottom of Pitts. Play 1 An injury to Taron Johnson in Week 1 kept him out of the lineup against the Los Angeles Chargers and the...

What would it cost for Washington to trade up with the Buffalo Bills

What would it cost for Washington to trade up with the Buffalo Bills

If they want an Alex Smith replacement, Buffalo could be sitting pretty. When Alex Smith was injured in 2018, it was apparent fairly early on that his recovery wouldn’t be like that of a normal broken leg. The bone was sticking out of the leg, leading to a greater risk of infection and multiple surgeries. With his leg still in a special cast, Washington has now said they don’t expect Smith to play in 2019 (but left out the more ominous “if he ever plays again”.) If Washington wants to address their quarterback situation with a rookie at the position, the Buffalo Bills could be in a...

Spencer Long’s contract laden with incentives

Spencer Long’s contract laden with incentives

The offensive lineman is betting on himself with a high-risk, high-reward contract. Two days after the dust settled from the Buffalo Bills signing offensive lineman Spencer Long, we have new clarification about the contract details thanks to the hard work of ESPN beat reporter Mike Rodak. Overall, Long’s contract is long on incentives and short on guaranteed money. The Bills are only on the hook for a single season, but two successive team options allow Buffalo to extend his deal up to two additional years. Each year is loaded with likely-to-be-earned bonuses that would give Long an...

How defenses made Josh Allen look bad

How defenses made Josh Allen look bad

A look at how three teams used similar concepts to make Josh Allen look bad If Josh Allen is the franchise quarterback we’ve all been waiting for, it’s no secret he’ll need to improve on his 2018 performance. While there were flashes of talent that should give us hope, there’s no getting around the fact that the rookie turned in a few bad games. Priority one for the Buffalo Bills should be to determine what defenses did to make Josh Allen look bad, and then teach him how to beat it. Luckily for the Bills we already did a lot of the legwork for them. We’ve examined three of...

Bills come in on the bottom half of SB Nation’s future rankings

If Josh Allen can pan out like we hope, the future will look bright This week, Adam Stites of SB Nation came out with NFL power rankings that are based on the teams’ futures. The Buffalo Bills came in at 23rd, which is good for second in the AFC East. The Miami Dolphins came in last, the New York Jets came in 27th and the New England Patriots came in 9th. Top 100 draft picks: 9th, 40th, 74th Cap space: $79.1 million “You could put the Bills way higher on the list if you believe in Josh Allen more than I do.

AAF Recap: Former Bills take the stage

AAF Recap: Former Bills take the stage

You asked for it and you got it. Buffalo Bills fans recently told us they would be interested seeing how former Bills players have been doing in the Alliance of American Football (AAF). Starting off with former members that are in managerial roles in the league we have Bill Polian who was a co-founder of the AAF. Also, Pete Metzelaars is the offensive-line coach for the Atlanta Legends. When we get to the players, the Birmingham Iron has former Bills’ punter Colton Schmidt. In his first game he had three punts averaging 44 yards with two punts downed inside the ten-yard line. Cornerback...

Podcast: What led to the Steelers’ downfall in 2018? Team dysfunction or turnovers?

The once famed ‘Killer B’s’ are a thing of the past. Will the Steelers be without both Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown in 2019? This question once seemed like a slam dunk, but not anymore. The 2018 regular season for the Pittsburgh Steelers was a forgettable one. Mired by drama and poor play the team fell short of multiple goals. No AFC North division title, and most importantly, no seat in the AFC Playoffs. It is hard to believe, when looking back, this Steelers team was at one time 7-2-1, and winners of six in a row, and finished the season 9-6-1. Talk about a fall from grace. So,...

Broncos trade for Flacco, potentially altering Bills’ Draft trade possibilities

Broncos trade for Flacco, potentially altering Bills’ Draft trade possibilities

Will teams be desperate to jump Denver now? On Wednesday, the Denver Broncos shipped what’s believed to be a 4th round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Baltimore Ravens for elite quarterback Joe Flacco. Flacco had been usurped by rookie Lamar Jackson in 2018 and Case Keenum fell flat for the Broncos after signing last offseason. For the Buffalo Bills, this could mean a few different things. They sit one spot ahead of Denver near the top of the 2019 NFL Draft, and as we discussed earlier this week, may have been in a prime trade down spot ahead of the Broncos. If a team wanted a QB but...
