He has 474 career receptions for over 7,000 yards and 76 touchdowns. He has established himself as the NFLs most endearing personality. GRONK MARCHES TO HIS OWN DRUMMER. HE RECENTLY SPIKED A BILLS CAP AT A WEDDING RECEPTION. PROUD OF HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS ON AND OFF THE FIELD, WE SALUTE HIM AS 1BUFFALO.
First round draft pick Josh Allen remains unsigned. With training camp fast approaching he has yet to ink his rookie contract. The holdup is reportedly offset language. It would reduce the amount owed him by earnings with another team if he is released before the end of his contract. THE IMPASSE AFFECTS OTHER TOP 10 PICKS. QUARTERBACK SENSATIONS SAM DARNOLD AND BAKER MAYFIELD ALSO HAVE NOT YET SIGNED. LOOKING TO BRING ALLEN TO THE TABLE AND AVOID A DISTRACTING HOLDOUT, WE HOPE FOR THE BEST AS 1BUFFALO.
Expect a lively competition among the 3 Bills quarterbacks once training camp opens. All will be working to prove themselves and win the starting nod. Returning veteran Nathan Peterman has made great progress since the San Diego debacle. AJ McCarron was brought in as a reliable backup. Rookie sensation Josh Allen is clearly the future of the franchise. THERE WILL BE JOCKEYING FOR POSITION AS THE PRESEASON UNFOLDS. COACH McDERMOTT WILL PLOT HOW QUICKLY TO BRING ALLEN ALONG. LOOKING FOR INTENSE RIVALRY UNDER CENTER, WE WATCH FROM THE SIDELINES AS 1BUFFALO.

The NFL has granted permission for the Bills to wear their alternate/throwback jerseys 3 times in the upcoming season. Teams were formerly allowed to wear the retro outfits only twice a year.

The Bills currently have 80 – 1 odds to win Super Bowl 53. That is according to Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. They are expected to have an over/under win total of 6.5.

LOOKING TO PROVE THE ODDSMAKERS WRONG, WE PLACE OUR BETS AS 1BUFFALO.
Former Bills guard Richie Incognito has had an eventful offseason. He renegotiated his contract, fired his agent, and retired. He later reconsidered and was released. He is now looking to sign with another team. DESPITE THE CONTROVERSY RICHIE REMAINS ONE OF THE PREMIER OFFENSIVE LINEMEN IN THE LEAGUE. THE 3 TIME PRO BOWLER WAS THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE LINE. EXTENDING HIM ALL BEST WISHES AS HE MAPS A COMEBACK, WE UNITE AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills are potentially interested in cornerback Sam Beal. They sent a scout along with representatives of all 32 NFL teams to his pro day at Western Michigan. He will be available in the supplemental draft on July 11. BEAL WOULD PROVIDE DEPTH TO THE CORNERBACK CORPS BEHIND TRE’DAVIOUS WHITE AND VONTAE DAVIS. HE WOULD SHORE UP THE SECONDARY. INTRIGUED BY THE PROSPECT OF SIGNING HIM, WE FOLLOW FROM THE SIDELINES AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills face critical challenges on offense. With training camp just weeks away the decision on starting quarterback will have to be made. Josh Allen, AJ McCarron, and Nathan Peterman are all inexperienced contenders. New offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has his work cut out. The wide receiving corps needs major help. The offensive line has gaping holes since the retirements of Eric Wood and Richie Incognito. ALL THESE ISSUES WILL HAVE TO BE ADDRESSED IF THE BILLS ARE TO REPEAT IN THE PLAYOFFS. THE TASKS WHILE DAUNTING ARE POTENTIALLY RESOLVABLE. LOOKING FOR INSPIRED PRACTICE AND PLAY, WE AWAIT TRAINING CAMP AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills roster has been ranked 16th in the league by Pro Football Focus. The rating puts us in the middle of the pack. It cites cornerback Tre’Davious White as the teams biggest strength. The biggest weakness is seen as the other cornerbacks such as Vontae Davis and Phillip Gaines. THE BILLS ARE SOLIDLY ENTRENCHED AS A MID-RANGE TEAM. SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE UNDER COACH McDERMOTT. THE BIG QUESTION MARK IS WHO WILL START AT QUARTERBACK. LOOKING FOR FURTHER IMPROVEMENT ONCE TRAINING CAMP OPENS, WE RALLY AS 1BUFFALO.
