90 players in 90 days: LS Reid Ferguson

90 players in 90 days: LS Reid Ferguson

Some love for the specialists! The Buffalo Bills had one long snapper for eight years, as Garrison Sanborn held down the position from 2009-2016. However, in 2017, the team parted ways with Sanborn and turned over the gig to an undrafted free agent from LSU. In our latest installment of “90 players in 90 days,” we give some press to a player who is only noticed when he doesn’t do his job well. Name: Reid Ferguson Number: 69 Position: LS Height/Weight: 6’2” 244 lbs. Age: 24 Experience: 2 College: LSU Draft: Joined the Buffalo Bills as a UDFA in 2016 Financial situation (per...

Plays that defined 2017: Bills at Chargers

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 11 match-up: Buffalo Bills at Los Angeles Chargers The Buffalo Bills’ winning ways were coming to a screeching halt.

New stadium for the Bills is no certainty

New stadium for the Bills is no certainty

Kim Pegula spoke earlier this week regarding the potential for a new stadium for the Buffalo Bills One of the most popular items of discussion among Buffalo Bills fans is whether the team will look to build a new stadium in the near future. The site currently known as New Era Field has been home to the Bills since 1973, and many expected owners Kim and Terry Pegula to explore new stadium options once they took over the team. While the Pegulas have consistently stated that they would explore all options, Kim cast a bit of doubt on the possibility earlier this week. Pegula spoke with Vic...

90 players in 90 days: LB Tanner Vallejo

The second-year man looks to make a greater impact on defense in 2018 The Buffalo Bills selected a pair of linebackers late in the 2017 NFL Draft. While one of them ended up starting at the weakside linebacker position last season, the other played almost exclusively on special teams. Heading into his second NFL season, that special teams player will try to make a larger impact on defense, as well. In the latest installment in our “90 players in 90 days” series, we look at a linebacker who Sean McDermott seems to think is ready to take a big step forward in his second NFL season. Name:...

Will the Buffalo Bills be better on offense and defense than they were last season?

Will the Buffalo Bills be better on offense and defense than they were last season?

Both sides of the ball have had a lot of changes over the offseason Once again, the Buffalo Bills added numerous new faces to the roster. Due to players leaving in either free agency, retirement or trade, the roster to start the 2018 season will look very different from 2017. With the changes to the roster, the performances on both sides of the ball could be noticeably different from the previous season. Offense Two members of the starting unit on the offensive line decided to hang up their cleats and call it a career. Ryan Groy has the best opportunity to be Eric Woods replacement and...

90 players in 90 days: G Ryan Groy

Although the Bills’ official website lists him as a guard, it’s possible that he ends up the team’s starting center in 2018 The Buffalo Bills lost quite a few familiar names on their offensive line this offseason. They traded left tackle Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals, they said good-bye to center Eric Wood in a very awkward “retirement ceremony,” then they released guard Richie Incognito after he retired and un-retired, only to then involve himself in a bizarre incident that led to an involuntary psychiatric hold. Much will be made, then, of the positional battles...

Worst 2017 Bills salary cap values, No. 7: Jordan Matthews

Worst 2017 Bills salary cap values, No. 7: Jordan Matthews

For a player who was expected to solidify the receiving corps, Matthews underwhelmed in 2017 The Buffalo Bills acquired wide receiver Jordan Matthews from the Philadelphia Eagles on August 11, 2017. The team dealt a former second-round pick, cornerback Ronald Darby, to the Eagles for Matthews and a third-round draft choice. Matthews was acquired shortly after the team had traded wideout Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a second-round choice. Matthews was expected to give the Bills a solid target throughout the 2017 season, as the durable receiver had...

Clay’s projections would mean a down year for the Bills Last week, ESPN’s Mike Clay released his projections for all 32 NFL teams for the 2018 NFL season.

90 players in 90 days: CB Lafayette Pitts

The special teams player looks to stick with the 53-man roster, but he faces an uphill climb The Buffalo Bills have a solid secondary, one filled with excellent starters and some solid depth options. Finding room for depth players is the major challenge at this point, and as the old adage goes, you never can have too many corners on an NFL roster. In a passing league, it’s essential to have quality depth in the defensive secondary. In the latest installment of our “90 players in 90 days” series, we look at one of those potential depth players in the defensive backfield. Name:...

Zay Jones sidelined for spring workouts following knee suergery

Zay Jones sidelined for spring workouts following knee suergery

Sean McDermott revealed that Zay Jones underwent knee surgery last week and is not expected back this “Spring” Head coach Sean McDermott discussed the health of the wide receiver group on Thursday, the last day of OTAs for the Buffalo Bills this week. McDermott revealed that Zay Jones underwent surgery on his knee sometime “late last week.” There is no firm timetable set but the injury is expected to sideline Jones throughout “the rest of the spring.” It is unclear if McDermott was referring to the spring OTAs or the entire offseason, which will come to a close on June 20th....

Peterman, McCarron splitting starting QB reps; Allen with third team

Peterman, McCarron splitting starting QB reps; Allen with third team

True to his word, Josh Allen is being asked to earn his spot so far True to earlier reports, quarterback Josh Allen is starting his NFL career at the bottom of the depth chart. From head coach Sean McDermott’s lips to reporters’ ears on the first day of media availability during OTAs, Josh Allen is the sole Buffalo Bills quarterback working with the third string. Providing further insight into the quarterback pecking order, McDermott has further indicated Nathan Peterman and AJ McCarron are splitting time with the ones. This is consistent with the Bills’ mantra of competition at...

Bills rank last in ESPN’s QB Confidence Index

Bills rank last in ESPN’s QB Confidence Index

The inexperience at QB isn’t ideal for any NFL team Coming into the 2018 NFL season, ESPN decided to rank their confidence in each team’s quarterback situation. They did not only discuss the starters, but the depth chart as a whole. The Buffalo Bills came in dead last. ESPN does say that the way the Bills handled the QB situation wasn’t even the wrong way to do it. However, when your most experienced QB has under 1000 yards passing in three seasons, it’s tough to have confidence moving forward. Granted, career backup A.J. McCarron deserves a shot to see what he can do as a...

Bills starting roles up for grabs heading into OTAs

Bills starting roles up for grabs heading into OTAs

Setting the stage for the position battles that are to come As OTAs kick off this week, starting positions for the Buffalo Bills will be up for grabs. These are the position groups that have two, three, or several competitors vying for that coveted role as a full-time starter on the team. Who ends winning these competitions and why will greatly affect the trajectory of the Bills moving forward. Quarterback Let’s get this obvious one out of the way. Josh Allen is the quarterback of the future but not necessarily of the present. It’s likely that the team won’t trot him out onto the...

Worst 2017 Bills salary cap values, No. 8: Charles Clay

Worst 2017 Bills salary cap values, No. 8: Charles Clay

It’s hard to say the team’s leading receiver was a bad value, but let us explain Charles Clay is among the best paid players in the NFL, both on the Buffalo Bills and at the tight end position overall. In 2017, the veteran tight end led the Bills in receiving yards with 558. He was also second on the team in both targets (74) and receptions (49). None of these are eye-popping numbers, but how much of it is because Clay played in an incredibly conservative, low-volume passing offense? It’s hard to ding the players catching the passes for posting such low volume numbers when the reason...

How do you think the Bills did this offseason?

How do you think the Bills did this offseason?

There was a lot of roster overhaul since the season ended Ever since Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott started leading the Buffalo Bills about a year ago, many moves they made had fans scratching their heads, but the moves they made lad the team to it’s first playoff appearance this millennium, so fans have opted to trust the process as they head into year number two. The team has continued to wheel and deal since the season came to an end in Jacksonville this January. They’ve ditched former offensive coordinator Rick Dennsion, hired a national champion college coach to replace him....

90 players in 90 days: RB Chris Ivory

The veteran bruiser looks to provide some thunder to Shady’s lightning In the modern NFL, it’s quite rare to see a single running back handle a tremendous workload. Gone are the days where each team had a workhorse back who would be spelled occasionally by someone else. In 2017, LeSean McCoy was second in the NFL in carries with 287; only Le’Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers topped him with 321. When McCoy was off the field last year, Buffalo’s offense sputtered immensely, which is why the Buffalo Bills invested in a veteran backup for the future Hall of Fame runner. In our...
