Bills land four on Pro Football Focus Top 101 players list

LeSean McCoy, Bills secondary gets nods. Under first-year head coach Sean McDermott, the Buffalo Bills far exceeded expectations in 2017, snapping the franchise’s embarrassing 17-year playoff drought while posting a 9-7 record. The Bills earned the No. 6 seed in the AFC and gave the Jacksonville Jaguars all they could handle in the AFC Wild Card round before falling 10-3. Rookie cornerback Tre’Davious White, safeties Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde,and running back LeSean McCoy excelled on the field in 2017, and their steady play earned them spots on Pro Football Focus’ top 101 players...

List of possible 2018 Bills veteran cuts

The list of realistic veteran cuts is short thanks to frantic roster turnover. We’ve been running a series of articles, exploring the possibilities of releasing several veterans on the Buffalo Bills. In this series we’ve analyzed play in 2017, discussed the financial ramifications of releasing or trading the player, looked at in-house as well as external options in free agency and the draft for replacement. Now that we’ve completed the look at individuals, we can recap the group as a whole and place into tiers. Tier 1 - Pretty Safe RB LeSean McCoyOG Richie Incognito First of all, no...

LeSean McCoy will be the Buffalo Bills’ next Hall of Fame player

LeSean McCoy will be the Buffalo Bills’ next Hall of Fame player

What does Shady have to do to earn himself a gold jacket? LeSean McCoy has had an incredible career. The veteran of nine NFL seasons has been among the best at his position for the entirety of his career, running with elite grace and ankle-breaking agility. As Shady nears 30 years old, some have begun to think about his career winding down, leading to debate about his place among the greats of the game. If he were to retire today, McCoy would have a legitimate shot at making the Hall of Fame. If he plays for a few more years and continues to perform at a rate similar to what he’s...

Report: Philadelphia Eagles tried to trade for Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy in 2016

Report: Philadelphia Eagles tried to trade for Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy in 2016

Can you imagine what the Bills offense would have looked like this past season without him? The football world realized what a grave mistake the Philadelphia Eagles made when they traded star running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills ahead of the 2015 season. Apparently, the Eagles did too. Sources told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that during the 2016 offseason the Eagles had an “off-the-books offer for McCoy comprised of a package of players that included wide receiver Jordan Matthews.” Ironically, Philadelphia dealt Matthews to Buffalo the following year in a separate...

2018 Pro Bowl live chat: Buffalo Bills players LeSean McCoy, Richie Incognito

2018 Pro Bowl live chat: Buffalo Bills players LeSean McCoy, Richie Incognito

The Bills are at the Pro Bowl. You can roll your eyes all you want about the NFL’s annual Pro Bowl, which today pits against one another roster alternates and great players alike in an all-star, half-speed exhibition game with nothing to cheer for except the helmets. But it’s still football and the ratings in 2017 drew more eyeballs than all but a handful of college bowl games and with 7 million people tuning in a year ago, the ratings actually fell considerably. As Buffalo Bills fans, you might be tuning in to see the two players in red helmets with charging buffaloes on the...

Fan sentiment: the Buffalo Bills should not move on from LeSean McCoy this offseason

Fan sentiment: the Buffalo Bills should not move on from LeSean McCoy this offseason

We did our due diligence, but they need him. Vote in our poll. The Buffalo Bills enter their offseason after a down year for the offense. The one member of the offense that did produce at a very high level was LeSean McCoy. But as McCoy passes his 30th birthday with a big cap hit, general manager Brandon Beane must perform his due diligence and at least look at the possibility of moving on from Shady. We did too, and the analysis was pretty overwhelming. 2017 Analysis (by Jeff Kantrowski aka Skarekrow) If you’re a data-oriented fan, his yards per carry might be cause for alarm. At 4.0...

If Buffalo Bills cut LeSean McCoy, there are 2018 NFL Draft options at running back

If Buffalo Bills cut LeSean McCoy, there are 2018 NFL Draft options at running back

If the Bills decide to get younger at running back, there are some studs. The Buffalo Bills offense wasn’t very good this year and with a new offensive coordinator coming into the fold, the team could decide to completely blow up the roster at key positions and start from scratch; new quarterback, new running back, new wide receivers, new offensive linemen. If - and it’s a huge if - Buffalo decides to move on from LeSean McCoy, there are a few draft options to replace him. (More than likely, we’ll be looking at Tier 2 or Tier 3 guys as number 2 running backs to give McCoy a breather...

5 potential free agent options to replace LeSean McCoy

5 potential free agent options to replace LeSean McCoy

Each of these guys would certainly carry a smaller 2018 cap hit than McCoy’s big one. LeSean McCoy has undoubtably excelled in his three seasons as the Buffalo Bills’ starting running back, but according to spotrac his current contract carries a cap hit of $8.9 million, which is $2 million more than any of back across the league currently under contract (until Le’Veon Bell inks his deal, anyway). McCoy is also going to hit the dreaded age of 30 by the time the 2018 season rolls around. Now, it’s not likely the Bills will move on from McCoy — he’s been the team’s most...

Current Buffalo Bills who could replace LeSean McCoy if he is released

Current Buffalo Bills who could replace LeSean McCoy if he is released

This is a pretty small list The 2017 Buffalo Bills offense was not extremely productive, but they would have been even worse off if it weren’t for the once-in-a-generation talent of LeSean McCoy. If for some reason McCoy and Buffalo were to part ways, the offense would need a new dynamic playmaker in the backfield. Mike Tolbert’s age and Patrick DiMarco’s vastly different skill set make them impossible to fill McCoy’s shoes. But, two somewhat realistic options for replacement* could have already been on the Bills roster this past season. * - Replacement in this case means...

How much cap space and money could the Buffalo Bills save by cutting LeSean McCoy?

How much cap space and money could the Buffalo Bills save by cutting LeSean McCoy?

They won’t save enough to justify cutting him, that’s for sure. The Buffalo Bills have nearly $31 million in cap space going into the 2018 NFL season, according to Spotrac. If they were to release LeSean McCoy, their best offensive player, they would add savings to that figure. However, that move would be a terrible one heading into a year where the Bills will look to build momentum after making the playoffs for the first time in seventeen years. If the Bills were to release McCoy, they would save $3.7 million on their 2018 salary cap. They would also lose one-third of their total...

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy was still awesome in 2017

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy was still awesome in 2017

We look at 2017 LeSean McCoy and reach the conclusion that he’s still playing at a very high level. Perhaps the most terrifying moment in 2017 for Bills fans came in Week 17 when LeSean McCoy exited a match-up against the Miami Dolphins with an ankle injury. Clinging onto a thread of playoff hope, the Bills could ill afford to be without their undisputed offensive centerpiece. Since coming to the Bills in 2015 courtesy of Chip Kelly’s questionable life choices, Shady has only strengthened an already impressive resume. With the Bills specifically, he has played the role of superstar on...

Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde withdraws from Pro Bowl

Hyde suffered a concussion in the Bills’ playoff loss to the Jaguars Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde has withdrawn from playing in the 2018 Pro Bowl. Hyde, who was scheduled to play in the game as a reserve, suffered a concussion in the Bills playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars during the divisional round. This is the likely reason as to why he elected not to play. He will be replaced by Kevin Byard of the Tennessee Titans. Bills running Back LeSean McCoy and offensive lineman Richie Incognito are still scheduled to play in the Pro Bowl. No other Bills were named to replace injured...
