Why did Jeremy Maclin pass on the Buffalo Bills?

Why did Jeremy Maclin pass on the Buffalo Bills?

The now-Ravens wide receiver says he signed with the club for football reasons. There was a multitude of signs that pointed to Jeremy Maclin signing with the Buffalo Bills after taking a free-agent visit to Western New York last month. Maclin was all smiles while appearing in a video posted to Instagram with ex-teammate, and one of the groomsmen in his wedding, LeSean McCoy. The Bills managed to keep Maclin in Buffalo overnight, and of course, there’s the history he has with former Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator and now Bills head coach Sean McDermott. But Maclin wound up...

AFC Notes: Bills, Steelers, Titans

Bills Bills RB LeSean McCoy is pretty excited about their new offense and how it could open up things up more for him this year. “Last year we ran the ball very well. I’m blessed to have a great offensive line,” said McCoy, via BuffaloBills.com. “Then you look at the offense, there are times when … The post AFC Notes: Bills, Steelers, Titans appeared first on NFLTradeRumors.co.

Rick Dennison’s playbook: Outside Zone running

Rick Dennison’s playbook: Outside Zone running

Buffalo’s offense is set to maximize LeSean McCoy’s effectiveness again. New Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Rick Dennison is a part of the Mike Shanahan coaching tree. Or, to be more specific, Gary Kubiak’s branch of the coaching tree. Dennison and Kubiak were teammates on the Denver Broncos from 1983 to 1990. In 1995, Kubiak became the offensive coordinator for Mike Shanahan’s Broncos, and Dennison came along as an offensive assistant, his first coaching job. They coached together for ten seasons until Kubiak was hired as head coach of the Houston Texans. Eventually, Dennison...

Bills not changing offense around LeSean McCoy

The Buffalo Bills' official website expects only "subtle changes" to the Bills' running scheme under new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. What It Means: Dennison is a zone disciple of Mike Shanahan and Gary Kubiak, but the Bills were employing plenty of zone runs under Anthony Lynn and Greg Roman. Dennison has insisted he plans to "carry over' many of the successful principles from the Bills' dominant rushing attacks of the past two seasons. Even with Shady headed into his age-29 season, he remains a safe fantasy option at the position. Our models project McCoy for 1,262...

90 Players in 90 Days: Buffalo Bills RB Joe Banyard

90 Players in 90 Days: Buffalo Bills RB Joe Banyard

The former undrafted free agent looks to stick with the Bills as LeSean McCoy’s primary backup. When the Buffalo Bills decided not to match the New England Patriots’ offer for backup running back Mike Gillislee, it opened up a hole that the team previously had very well-covered. Gilliselee’s departure opens up the possibility of earning time for someone like Joe Banyard. Although the Bills are perfectly set at the top of their running back depth chart with starter LeSean McCoy, the NFL is often a game of whose depth can outlast whose, and the Bills seem to be lacking in that...

LeSean McCoy best “big play” running back in AFC last season

LeSean McCoy best “big play” running back in AFC last season

No AFC runner had more large gainers than Shady in 2016. LeSean McCoy doesn’t have breakaway 4.3 speed, but he was the best “breakaway” running back in the AFC last season. Pro Football Focus sent this tweet on the AFC running backs who hit the most big plays in 2016: Melvin Gordon is big play threat every time he touches the ball pic.twitter.com/LGQ50sEoI3— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) July 4, 2017 How about the runners in the NFC? Ezekiel Elliott had 22 runs of 15 or more yards. He led the NFL with 322 carries. McCoy had 234. The Bears’ Jordan Howard, who had an underrated...

Bills' Jonathan Williams will not receive league discipline

Buffalo Bills running back Jonathan Williams will not face league discipline after being found not guilty in his 2016 DUI case, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. What It Means: Williams was arrested in Arkansas a year ago, but he was found not guilty earlier this month. With issues behind him, Williams can focus on winning the Bills' backup job behind LeSean McCoy. In 2016, Mike Gillislee earned 627 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns in that same role. Our models project Williams to rack up 264 rushing yards and 0.89 touchdowns on 69 carries, with 9 catches for 58 yards...

Pro Football Focus grades Buffalo Bills offensive line

PFF grades how the unit fared in 2016 and predicts how it’ll do in 2017. All Buffalo Bills fans know that the team’s rushing attack was one of the best in the league last season. Much of the credit is given to LeSean McCoy, but according to Pro Football Focus, the big boys up front should get a healthy amount of praise as well. PFF took a look at how each team’s offensive line fared on different run concepts. Spoiler alert: the Bills did pretty well. Outside Zone The Bills ranked first in this category (albeit with a low sample size) with 5.73 yards per carry and 2.77...
