Bills were relatively healthy for the 2017 season

Bills were relatively healthy for the 2017 season

Compared to years past, the Bills didn't have many long-term injuries In the 2017 season, the Buffalo Bills had just one starter miss over 10 games as Cordy Glenn missed 11 games on the year. For the rest of the season, most of the team stayed relatively healthy. Aside from Glenn, only Jordan Matthews, Shaq Lawson, and Andre Holmes were starters that the team put on injured reserve. Glenn battled a foot/ankle injury for the most of the season. He missed the last nine games when he was put on injured reserve after missing back-to-back games in the middle of the season. He also missed the...

Benjamin Allbright out of Denver has the Bills looking to trade up On Saturday afternoon, Benjamin Allbright of 104.7 in Denver reported that the Buffalo Bills are looking to trade up for a quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Allbright is a quasi-national reporter who likes to point out he called the Nathan Peterman pick the morning before he was selected. Allbright did not initially specify which quarterback the Bills were...

Bills Links, 2/17: Plenty of free agency questions

The start of free agency is less than one month away The official start of the NFL free agency period is less than one month away, and there are plenty of questions around what the Buffalo Bills will do. The team has a number of notable unrestricted free agents including E.J. Gaines and Preston Brown, and will be active to some extent when pursuing other options around the league.

Today’s edition of the Bills Links also includes discussion on Lamar Jackson, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen...

Vote: Projecting a new contract for Preston Brown

Vote: Projecting a new contract for Preston Brown

Is the NFL’s leading tackler worth a huge contract? In 2017, Preston Brown led the NFL in tackles (144) and played 99.81% of the snaps on the defense, calling the plays and acting as the man to put people into the right spots. But Brown is a free agent and with about $21 million in available salary cap space to sign free agents, the Buffalo Bills will need to be prudent about who they sign long-term. Is Brown one of those guys? Previous contract Buffalo drafted Brown in the third round in 2014 and he just finished his rookie contract. It was a four-year, $3 million contract. 2014 cap:...

Potential upgrades to Preston Brown in the 2018 NFL Draft

Potential upgrades to Preston Brown in the 2018 NFL Draft

The Bills could be looking for a more impactful linebacker in this years draft Ever since the Buffalo Bills selected linebacker Preston Brown in the third round of the 214 NFL Draft, he has been a mainstay at the linebacker position. While he’s never missed a game due to injury, Brown’s play during his tenure with the team can only be described as ‘solid.’ He’s well-rounded, which is to say he doesn’t stand out in any particular area. Now with Brown poised to leave in free agency, the Bills may use the 2018 NFL Draft to try to find his replacement. Below are some of the...

5 potential free agent replacements for Preston Brown

5 potential free agent replacements for Preston Brown

There should be plenty of options available, but should the Bills really pull the trigger? Linebacker Preston Brown has manned a huge role for the Buffalo Bills the past four seasons. Since being drafted by the Bills in the third round of the 2014 draft, Brown has started in all but two games for the team over his tenure - and even in those two, he still played. Brown recently said that he felt like head coach Sean McDermott wanted him back next season, and the linebacker himself admits that Buffalo is where he wants to be, but still, with his impending free agency on the way let’s...

Bills lack internal options to replace Preston Brown

Bills lack internal options to replace Preston Brown

Like many other positions, it’s slim pickings among the current roster Middle linebacker Preston Brown not only led the Buffalo Bills in total tackles in 2017 (144), he led the NFL for stops during the regular season. Brown, 25, came up with 84 solo stops, with many of those tackles occurring down field. He logged seven games with 10+ tackles, including 15 combined stops during a Week 16 loss to the New England Patriots. Over the final three weeks of the season, Brown was in on a league-high 37 tackles, but despite such gaudy tackling stats, Brown earned an overall grade of average (71.6)...

All-22 analysis: Preston Brown doesn’t stand out

All-22 analysis: Preston Brown doesn’t stand out

The NFL’s 2017 regular season leader in tackles often fails to jump off the screen A third-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft began Preston Brown’s career with the Buffalo Bills. If the best “ability” is “availability,” then Brown has it in spades. Brown has appeared in all 65 games (regular and post season) the Bills have played since selecting him, starting all but two. Brown has done more than just start in fact, being entrusted with the radio equipped helmet for defense by three separate coaching regimes. This past season saw Brown making nutrition changes to shed weight and...

Preston Brown thinks Bills want him back

Preston Brown thinks Bills want him back

The pending free agent believes the Bills want him back Buffalo Bills starting linebacker Preston Brown will be a free agent at the start of the new league year. Brown was tied for the NFL lead in tackles in 2017 and had his best season in the NFL. In his exit interview with head coach Sean McDermott, Brown said McDermott made it sound like the team wants him back for the 2018 season. In an interview with ESPN’s Mike Rodak, Brown described the conversation. “In the exit meeting, coach [McDermott] made it sound like they wanted me back,” said Brown. “He said some things that...

Vontae Davis visiting the Buffalo Bills

Vontae Davis visiting the Buffalo Bills

Davis, a two-time Pro Bowler, would strengthen the secondary The Buffalo Bills found one cornerback of the future in the 2017 NFL draft, as rookie Tre’Davious White burst onto the scene with a Rookie of the Year-caliber performance. Buffalo’s other starting cornerback, E.J. Gaines, is an unrestricted free agent, and while he performed well last year, Spotrac projects him to make a whole lot of money on the open market. According to ESPN’s NFL guru Adam Schefter, the Bills hosted an intriguing free agent cornerback option Thursday: two-time Pro Bowler Vontae Davis, 29, who was...

Plays that defined 2017: Buffalo Bills at Atlanta Falcons

Plays that defined 2017: Buffalo Bills at Atlanta Falcons

A review of the 2017 season and the plays that defined each game. With 2017 in the books following a fairly surprising playoff berth, we look back at the season and our beloved Buffalo Bills. Every week is a story and we bring this to you through the lens of key plays that defined the game. Your Week 4 match-up: Buffalo Bills at Atlanta Falcons The Buffalo Bills were riding high after an upset victory over the Denver Broncos in Week 3. The Bills had found enough on offense to get by the vaunted Denver defense, with two turnovers in the second half allowing Buffalo to pull ahead inch by...

Bills need infusion of youth and talent on defense

Bills need infusion of youth and talent on defense

The Bills need to rework the roster, especially on the defensive side of the ball The Buffalo Bills have plenty of work to do if they want to take the next step towards being a championship contender in 2018 and beyond. Their defense, while looking fundamentally sound and fairly effective for much of the 2017 NFL season, potentially may lose five starters in free agency, and they also are in danger of losing a key sub package player in nickel corner Leonard Johnson. With this in mind, the Bills have plenty of needs on defense, with some entire position groups in need of a complete...

Bills have plenty of needs on offense during 2018 NFL offseason

Bills have plenty of needs on offense during 2018 NFL offseason

The Bills will need to improve the offensive unit if they want to build on their first playoff season of the millennium The Buffalo Bills were a playoff team in 2017, earning that distinction for the first time since the 1999 NFL season. Even though the 2017 vintage will forever be known as the group that broke The Drought, there are plenty of areas in need of upgrading as the team looks to 2018 and beyond. On the offensive side of the ball, the Bills will probably undergo major changes. A new offensive scheme under Brian Daboll will thankfully replace the Rick Dennison offense of 2017,...

Penalty Recap: Bills vs. 2017 opponents

We did the weekly thing, but for the season on the whole, how did the Bills stack up against their opponents and the league? What a season from the Buffalo Bills!

No Buffalo Bills player is worth the franchise tag in 2018

No Buffalo Bills player is worth the franchise tag in 2018

While the Bills have some free agents they’d be wise to retain, using the franchise tag to do so would be unintelligent The Buffalo Bills have a total of 18 unrestricted free agents heading into the 2018 NFL offseason. While most of those players are depth pieces and otherwise replaceable members of the 2017 team, there are a few free agents that general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott would like to have back in Buffalo next season. In attempting to retain those players, however, there should be no discussion of using the franchise tag. Teams can begin using it on...

Bills build around Josh Allen in latest SB Nation mock

Bills build around Josh Allen in latest SB Nation mock

In a two round projection, the Bills draft a QB and add offensive talent in round two. If you have a young quarterback, the best way to help him succeed is to build around him with talented players. It worked for Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, Andy Dalton and Derek Carr, and it’s the strategy employed by the Buffalo Bills in Dan Kadar’s latest mock draft for SB Nation. Kadar went through two rounds in this week’s scenario, giving Buffalo four picks to use. As is often the case, three quarterbacks were selected in the top ten of the draft, leaving the Bills to take Wyoming quarterback...
