Top Bills News

  • Bills' Niles Scott: Linking up with Buffalo

    The Bills signed Scott (undisclosed) on Sunday, Maddy Glab of the team's official site reports.

    Scott played in six games with the Bengals down the stretch of the 2018 campaign, accruing four tackles while logging 46 defensive snaps. The defensive tackle hasn't seen any action in the interim, though, after spending last season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed health issue. Now healthy, Scott will add some depth to a position that saw Star Lotulelei (personal) opt out of the 2020 season.

  • Bills' Akeem King: Signs with Buffalo

    King signed with Buffalo on Sunday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    The Bills brought King in for a visit last week, and with cornerback E.J. Gaines opting out for the 2020 season Sunday, it's a 1-for-1 tradeoff to bring the former into the fold. Tre'Davious White, Levi Wallace and Josh Norman appear set as the top three corners, but King -- a former Falcon and Seahawk -- will have a fair chance to compete for a depth role.

  • Bills' Josh Norman: One less for competition

    Norman's teammate E.J. Gaines has opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns.

    The Bills likely will bring in more depth at corner -- they were reportedly looking at free agent Akeem King last week -- but it's now going to be a clean-cut battle for the No. 2 cornerback job between Norman and Levi Wallace. Wallace is the incumbent at the spot across from stud corner Tre-Davious White, but Norman -- a veteran free-agent acquisition this offseason -- is well familiar with coach Sean McDermott's defensive system stemming back to their Carolina days.

  • Bills' E.J. Gaines: Opts out of 2020 campaign

    Gaines will opt out of the 2020 season, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Gaines, who missed last season because of a groin injury, was expected to challenge for a starting cornerback spot -- either outside or nickel -- but he's decided to sit out the 2020 campaign due to COVID-19 concerns.

  • Bills' Dane Jackson: Heads to COVID list

    The Bills placed Jackson (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports

    Jackson is one of three Buffalo cornerbacks on the list, joining Siran Neal and Isiah Brown. Selected in the seventh round of April's draft, Jackson will have a delayed start to camp due to either testing positive for COVID-19 or having close contact with someone who did in the recent past.

  • Bills' Vincent Taylor: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Taylor was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The reserve defensive lineman will now enter NFL protocol pertaining to COVID-19. Taylor played in just three games with the Bills last season, accumulating six tackles.

  • Bills' Jon Feliciano: Gets chest surgery

    Feliciano suffered a chest injury that required surgery Friday, potentially keeping him out for two or three months, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.

    Feliciano had surgery in January to repair a torn rotator cuff, with the expectation he'd be ready to make the Week 1 start at right guard. He now figures to miss a good chunk of the 2020 campaign, likely landing on the PUP list or injured reserve. The Bills at least boast solid line depth, with projected backups Spencer Long, Evan Boehm and Daryl Williams each having at least 21 NFL starts to his name.

  • Bills' Siran Neal: Sent to COVID-19 list

    Neal is one of five Bills that have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Sal Maiorana of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports.

    That means Neal has either tested positive for the virus or been in close contact with someone that's been infected. The reserve defensive back has plenty of time to recover and stake his claim for a roster spot, but for now he's one of several that will be kept away from training camp happenings.

  • Bills' Vernon Butler: More opportunities sans Lotulelei?

    Butler, who was acquired by the Bills this offseason, could see more opportunity in 2020 due to Star Lotulelei opting out for the season, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.

    The Bills run a rotation throughout their defensive line and it's a deep one at that, but Butler -- a 2016 first-rounder who logged a career-high six sacks last season with the Panthers -- is now expected to be needed that much more. For now, Butler is the most likely choice to assume Lotulelei's starting position, with potential budding star Ed Oliver manning the other tackle spot.

  • Bills' Isiah Brown: Lands on COVID-19 list

    The Bills placed Brown (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

    The move indicates that the undrafted rookie out of Florida International has either tested positive for COVID-19 or has had close contact with a person who did. He's competing to earn a depth or special-teams role with Buffalo.

  • Bills' Duke Williams: On COVID-19 list

    Williams was placed on the Bills' reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

    It has not been confirmed whether Williams has tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with an infected person or persons. Once he's cleared of any virus implications, he's set to compete for a depth spot at wide receiver, a challenge that got a bit more difficult when the team traded for Stefon Diggs this offseason.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Working through back issue

    Beasley was placed on the active/non-football injury list Wednesday due to an upper-back issue, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

    The team's No. 3 wideout should have plenty of time to recover ahead of the team's Week 1 game. He already has the benefit of continuity with the Bills' offense and quarterback Josh Allen, but his situation remains worth monitoring nonetheless. Assuming the issue subsides, the biggest question surrounding Beasley's value will be how much the presence of offseason acquisition Stefon Diggs affects the team's other receivers.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Heads to PUP

    Sweeney has been placed on the Active/PUP list due to a foot injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    The second-year tight end has some work to do to gain some form of meaningful role in the Buffalo offense now that Tyler Kroft is healthy again and set to compete with Dawson Knox for the top TE spot. We'll see if Sweeney can get back at it in relatively short order so he can stake his claim to the No. 3 role.

  • Bills' Star Lotulelei: Joins opt-out list

    Lotulelei is taking a voluntary opt-out for the 2020 NFL season, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    The 30-year-old defensive tackle reportedly will now see the final three years of his contract pushed back to 2021-23. His absence isn't great news for the Buffalo run defense, but few teams are better prepared to withstand a major loss along the line. The Bills still have Ed Oliver, Vernon Butler, Harrison Phillips (knee) and Quinton Jefferson at defensive tackle.
