Fansided: Buffalo Bills: Building a strong team through the draft
The Buffalo Bills have to focus on building through the NFL Draft. It is just the way things are, at least until the team is a perennial contender again.
Brandon Beane has done a great job of drafting so far for a team that has a problem with retaining top draft picks.
Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmunds were Beane's first two first-round picks and their success, or failure, will come to define the GM's tenure in Buffalo. As of right now, both stand out as rising homegrown talents.

Buffalo Rumblings: 2019 Buffalo Bills scouting report: offensive tackle Conor McDermott
The Buffalo Bills have overhauled their offensive line over the last few months, adding talent along the interior and exterior. Some of their newest additions are also versatile enough to play multiple positions, while others are potentially talented enough to force some of Buffalo's returning linemen to other spots along the trenches.
In our latest installment of "90 players in 90 days," we profile one of Buffalo's holdovers along the offensive line, a player plucked off the waiver wire who finds himself looking like an outsider in a new positional group.

Buffalo Rumblings: Billieve Podcast: Tyler Kroft injury, O.J. Simpson's jersey, Steve Tasker, Eric Wood
On the latest episode of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast, host John Boccacino offers his thoughts on a newsy week out of One Bills Drive, discussing the injury suffered by presumed starting tight end Tyler Kroft, the decision to bring O.J. Simpson's No. 32 jersey back into the mix, and news on a pair of former Bills who work in the media.
Kroft, who signed a three-year deal this offseason with the Bills, suffered a broken foot on the opening day of Organized Team Activities (OTA) and is expected to miss between 3-4 months, putting his status for opening day (Sept.
Fansided: Buffalo Bills: Top 6 players on the roster right now
Through the ups and downs of last season, there is one takeaway that I noticed after the beatdown of the Miami Dolphins in Week 17: "Next season is the next stage after the down year."
The Buffalo Bills finished 6-10, third in the division behind the Dolphins and the New England Patriots. From drafting their hopeful franchise quarterback, living through different interception nightmares and discovering no-name talents near the end of the season, the Bills are taking it slowly in the right direction.
The Bills had a busy offseason. Bringing in free agents and draft picks to build the culture that Sean McDermott wants.
Buffalo Rumblings: Which Buffalo Bills offseason move do you like the most?
After stripping their team down to the proverbial studs in 2018, Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott spent last offseason slowly rebuilding the team in their preferred image with the drafting of quarterback Josh Allen and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. That process has continued in the 2019 offseason, with many more additions to team being brought in, so let's discuss our favorites
Bills fans were positively screaming for the team to acquire better interior offensive line talent, not just for Josh Allen's sake but for LeSean McCoy's as well.
ESPN.com: Will Bills' lack of a clear-cut No. 1 receiver hold them back?
Since 2016, all but three NFL teams have featured a wide receiver who has finished a season ranked within the top 32 at his position in receiving yards. The Buffalo Bills have been an exception, along with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears.
The last Bills wideout to place among the NFL's best 32 was Sammy Watkins, whose 1,047 yards in 2015 were 19th most among receivers.
Watkins, often injured, fell short of his potential after being drafted No. 4 overall in 2014. That in part led to Watkins being traded to the Los Angeles Rams during training camp in 2017.
Buffalo Rumblings: A look back at the plays that defined the Buffalo Bills' loss to the New York Jets
With the 2018 NFL season in the books, we look back at the year and our beloved Buffalo Bills. Every week is a story, and we bring this to you through the lens of key plays that defined each game. Your Week 14 match-up:
It was the lucky 13th game of the season and the rival New York Jets were coming to town. The first time the teams had met, Matt Barkley and the Bills had walloped the Josh McCown-led Jets. Both teams' rookie quarterbacks missed the first tilt due to injury.
Fansided: Buffalo Bills: Receiving corps has a lot to prove in 2019
Remember when the Buffalo Bills entered the season with Kelvin Benjamin as the number one receiver? It seems so long ago.
Just think, it was Benjamin and Nathan Peterman on offense to begin last season. What an ugly sight.
The Bills promptly moved on from both players and Brandon Beane has actually given Josh Allen some competent receivers to throw to. The additions of John Brown and Cole Beasley were wise moves, even if neither stands out as a major signing.
The receiving corps will also feature Robert Foster and Zay Jones.
Buffalo Rumblings: Buffalo Bills' OTA 2019 53-man roster prediction
The Buffalo Bills began OTAs this week. With several players injured and others just learning the ropes, this 53-man roster prediction is way too early. Treat it as a discussion-starter instead of an ironclad prediction, and we'll be fine.Quarterback (2)
Tyree Jackson is cut and they hope they can land him on the practice squad. They could keep him on the roster for the first week of the season and then try and stash him or try and put him through in the big wave and hope he gets lost in the shuffle. Make no mistake: they are hitching their wagon to Josh Allen, so the third QB spot isn't as important.

Fansided: Buffalo Bills: A great update on Jim Kelly's health status
The unfair disease took the life of Pancho Billa and has been something Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly has been dealing with for years.
Just to be clear, Pancho put up a hell of a fight and never stopped spreading positivity. That is just incredible and shows why he was beloved by so many.
Kelly has been in quite the fight himself and has undergone some grueling surgeries. Naturally, he has not spread anything but positive vibes himself. That must be the quarterback in him.
Kelly underwent another scan to check for cancer and some good news came out about that today courtesy of Jill Kelly.
ESPN.com: Latest cancer scan on Bills great Kelly clean
Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly has had a clean scan to check for cancer, his wife Jill posted on Instagram on Wednesday.
"Thank YOU SO MUCH for praying and standing with us as we continue this journey ... one day at a time, one prayer at a time," Jill Kelly wrote. "It all sounds cliche, but it's true."
The Bills also tweeted about Jill's post.

In November, Jim Kelly underwent what had they had hoped would be his last cancer-related surgery.
Buffalo Rumblings: We look at the plays that defined the Buffalo Bills heart-breaker against the Miami Dolphins
With the 2018 NFL season in the books, we look back at the year and our beloved Buffalo Bills. Every week is a story, and we bring this to you through the lens of key plays that defined each game. Your Week 13 match-up:
The Bills had just completed their first two-game win streak of the season and were looking to extend it to three. The Dolphins had lost their last two and certainly looked beatable. The Bills more than doubled Miami's yardage (415 to 175) and won the time of possession battle by nearly six minutes.
Fansided: Buffalo Bills: Roster updates from the start of the week
This is the time of year when the bottom of NFL rosters experience a great deal of turnover.
That is true with the Buffalo Bills as well. The team made some moves earlier this week that may not stand out at all to most fans, but could in the future if the players involved do great things.
The @buffalobills have claimed T De'Ondre Wesley off waivers from Indianapolis and signed TE Mik'Quan Deane.
The team has released OL Blake Hance and S Abraham Wallace.
Nothing major there but churning the bottom of the roster is always a good strategy in the search for the deepest possible roster.
