The Bills Mafia greeted new players at the airport with chicken wings. The welcome by diehard fans was appreciated by the free agents who were introduced yesterday. Brandon Beane dismissed gripes of others who do not want to play here. He mentioned Antonio Brown who reportedly was turned off by negative image of the city. BILLS FANS ARE AMONG THE MOST LOYAL AND ENTHUSIASTIC IN THE LEAGUE. THE GAME DAY EXPERIENCE IS SECOND TO NONE. CELEBRATING ALL THAT THE TEAM MEANS TO OUR COMMUNITY, WE LOCK ARMS AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills have made solid progress thus far through free agency. Brandon Beanes strategy of plugging roster holes will pay dividends. He has dealt for steady reliable talent. He has refrained from overpaying for name players. THE BILLS ARE BETTER POSITIONED AFTER THIS WEEKS MANEUVERS. THERE IS NOW A CREDIBLE SUPPORTING CAST AROUND QB SENSATION JOSH ALLEN. MORE SIGNINGS WILL BE FORTHCOMING THROUGH NEXT MONTHS DRAFT. SALUTING THE GENERAL MANAGER AS HE BUILDS A PLAYOFF CONTENDER, WE CLOSE RANKS AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills have added punt returner Andre Roberts to special teams. The Pro Bowler was most recently with division rival Jets. He lead the league last year in kickoff yards returned. SPECIAL TEAMS HAVE BEEN A MAJOR PROBLEM. SEAN McDERMOTT OPENLY COMPLAINED ABOUT THEIR PERFORMANCE. COACH DANNY CROSSMAN WAS REPLACED BY HEATH FARWELL. THE ROSTER SHUFFLING CONTINUES. THE MOST PRESSING NEED IS FOR A VETERAN WIDE RECEIVER. NOTING THE PROGRESS WITH FREE AGENCY UNDERWAY, WE LOOK FOR THE NEXT SIGNING AS 1BUFFALO.
Center Mitch Morse has been acquired in free agency from the Chiefs. His 4 year deal is for a reported 11 million per year. THE CONTRACT MAKES MORSE ONE OF THE HIGHEST PAID OFFENSIVE LINEMEN IN THE LEAGUE. THE BILLS ARE TAKING A MAJOR CHANCE, GIVEN HIS HISTORY OF CONCUSSIONS. HE SPENT PART OF LAST SEASON ON INJURED RESERVE. QUESTIONING THE WISDOM OF THIS PACT, WE ARE JUSTIFIABLY DOUBTFUL AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills have signed tight end Tyler Kroft. The 3 year deal is for a reported 18.75 million. Drafted in the third round in 2015 by the Bengals, Kroft spent last season on injured reserve. THE BILLS ARE GAMBLING ON KROFT REMAINING HEALTHY. HE JOINS JASON CROOM AS THE OTHER TIGHT END AFTER THE RELEASE OF CHARLES CLAY. CONCERNED THAT THE TEAM MAY HAVE OVERPAID, WE HOPE FOR THE BEST AS 1BUFFALO.
Free agency gets underway this week. The Bills are uniquely positioned with the fourth largest salary cap reserve. General manager Brandon Beane will be looking to fill roster holes, particularly at wide receiver and offensive and defensive lineman. THE FAILED EFFORT TO SIGN ANTONIO BROWN UNDERSCORES THE CRISIS AT WIDE RECEIVER. THE GM HAS VOWED TO BE COST CONSCIOUS. LOOKING FOR INSPIRED DEALING AT THE RIGHT PRICE, WE WELCOME FREE AGENCY AS 1BUFFALO.
Brandon Beane counsels caution in free agency. The general manager insists the Bills will not overpay when dealing. That would put them back in the salary cap hole he inherited. BEANE HAS DEVELOPED A RICH WAR CHEST BY CLEARING OUT HOLDOVER CONTRACTS. HE HAS THE FOURTH LARGEST RESERVE IN THE LEAGUE. CONCURRING WITH HIS SMART, CAUTIOUS APPROACH TO NEGOTIATIONS, WE APPLAUD HIS STRATEGY AS 1BUFFALO.
General manager Brandon Beane announced that the Bills have moved on from Antonio Brown. They will instead pursue free agency. The trade that might have been did not happen. Commentators say the negotiations were not even close. WHILE BROWN WOULD HAVE PROVIDED MUCH NEEDED HELP AT RECEIVER, THE RISKS WERE TOO GREAT. AT AGE 31 HE HAS LIMITED POTENTIAL. HIS MUCH PUBLICIZED ESTRANGEMENT FROM THE STEELERS DID NOT BODE FOR A SMOOTH TRANSITION. GRATEFUL THAT THE FRONT OFFICE HAS MOVED ON, WE LOOK FOR THE NEXT INSTALLMENT AS 1BUFFALO.
Rumors are swirling that the Bills are in trade talks with the Steelers to acquire wide receiver Antonio Brown. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media first made the report. As of press time no deal has been announced. BROWN WAS SAID TO BE SEEKING A TRADE TO THE RAIDERS. HE IS ARGUABLY THE BEST RECEIVER IN THE LEAGUE. HIS SIGNING WOULD ELECTRIFY THE BILLS OTHERWISE ANEMIC CORPS. FOLLOWING DEVELOPMENTS WITH GREAT INTEREST, WE AWAIT WORD AS 1BUFFALO.
Jordan Phillips received a 4.5 million contract extension. The Bills defensive tackle will get a 2 million signing bonus in addition to 2.5 million salary and workout bonus. The deal is for one year. PHILLIPS CONTRACT IS RICH FOR A PLAYER THE SQUAD RELEASED THEN REHIRED LAST SEASON. WE TRUST BRANDON BEANE WILL NOT GIVE AWAY THE STORE IN OTHER UPCOMIMG SIGNINGS. COUNSELING PRUDENCE TO AVOID THE MISTAKES OF THE WHALEY ERA, WE CAUTIOUSLY REMAIN 1BUFFALO.
