Bills Release Glenn Gronkowski

The Bills released free agent Glenn Gronkowski following the Ravens game.  He is the brother of New England star tight end Rob Gronkowski.  After a disappointing performance, he was replaced by veteran Jerome Felton.  BUFFALO SHOULD HAVE KEPT THE HOMETOWN FAVORITE.  IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT DIVISION RIVALRY TO HAVE 2 GRONKS IN THE AFC EAST.

Sammy Watkins may play Thursday against the Jets.  The Bills wide receiver is questionable due to recurring foot pain following offseason surgery.  He saw limited action in the Ravens game, with 4 receptions for 43 yards.  A HEALTHY WATKINS IS KEY TO THE BUFFALO OFFENSE.  THE COACHES CAN NOT RISK FURTHER INJURY THAT COULD SIDELINE HIM FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON.  RYAN AND COMPANY NEED TO PLAY THIS ONE SMART.

The Bills fell to the Ravens 13 – 7 in the season opener.  It was a disappointing performance in which Buffalo converted on only 3 third downs.  The only score came on LeSean McCoy’s one yard touchdown.Tyrod Taylor had a tough day.  THE BILLS CLEARLY ARE STRUGGLING AND NEED TO REGROUP.  IT’S BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD AS BUFFALO PREPARES TO HOST THE JETS THURSDAY EVENING IN PRIME TIME.  SHOW YOUR SUPPORT BY TURNING OUT FOR THE NATIONAL AUDIENCE.

The Bills will wear patriotic uniforms in the regular season opener.  They will don special gloves, pins, and decals when they take on the Ravens.  This is in remembrance of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  EMOTIONS WILL BE RUNNING HIGH AS AMERICANS COMMEMORATE THE TERRORIST OUTRAGE.  LET’S RALLY ‘ROUND THE FLAG AND SHOW OUR NATIONAL SOLIDARITY AT THIS GREAT SPORTING EVENT.

Seantrel Henderson has been suspended for 4 games.  The Bills offensive tackle is facing substance abuse issues.  Henderson has a history of such charges going back to college.  He underwent surgery in the offseason for treatment of Crohn’s disease.  THE NFL HAS ZERO TOLERANCE FOR DRUG INFRACTIONS.  HENDERSON HAS LET THE TEAM DOWN AND SHOULD KNOW BETTER.

Over the weekend the Bills made several roster moves.  4 players were added to the practice squad. They are guard Gabe Ikard, corner back Doran Grant, linebacker Max Valles, and wide receiver Matt Hazel.  Fullback Dan Vitale was let go in a surprise cut.  BUFFALO IS TWEEKING THE ROSTER TO IMPROVE ITS PROSPECTS.  TIME WILL TELL WHETHER THESE ARE THE RIGHT MOVES.

The Bills have signed fullback Dan Vitale.  He played college ball at Northwestern where he was All Big Ten.  Drafted this year by Tampa Bay, the 6-2, 225 pound Vitale is expected to contribute big time on offense.  REX RYAN IS PLAYING SMART.  HE IS MAKING THE RIGHT ROSTER MOVES.

Reality star Kim Zolciak has expressed her love for husband Kroy Biermann.  She took to social media following his release by the Bills.  Biermann played 8 seasons for Atlanta and was signed by Buffalo this summer.  Zolciak, whose family is from upstate New York, initially supported his move to Buffalo. Unfortunately he did not make the cut and is now a free agent.  IT’S BACK HOME TO ATLANTA FOR BIERMANN TO FOCUS ON FAMILY AND ENDORSEMENTS.

Linebacker Manny Lawson and fullback Jerome Felton were cut by the Bills.  They and 19 others were released on Friday as Buffalo trimmed the roster in advance of Sunday’s deadline.  Making the grade was hometown favorite Glenn Gronkowski who can start as tight end or fullback.  He joins older brothers Rob and Dan as the NFL’s only trio of brothers.  WE SALUTE THE COACHES ON THEIR ROSTER MOVES.  FELTON FAILED TO IMPRESS AND LAWSON WAS HOBBLED BY INJURIES.  WE WISH THEM AND THE OTHERS WELL IN THE NEXT PHASE OF THEIR CAREERS.

 

 

The Bills fell to the Lions 31 – 0 in a blowout at Ford Field.  The preseason finale was a fiasco from start to finish.  Both the offense and defense turned in weak performances.  One bright spot was the play of Glenn Gronkowski, who deserves to make the team.  It’s back to the drawing board as attention turns to the regular season opener versus Baltimore on September 11th.  BILLS FANS CAN ONLY HOPE THIS WAS AN OFF NIGHT.  THE PRESEASON IS BEST FORGOTTEN AS THE REAL WORK BEGINS.
