Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie officially signed an undisclosed contract with the team Monday, March 30.

  Bills | Receivers did Josh Allen no favors in 2019    Sun Mar 29, 06:58 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen had a league-high 7.2 percent of his pass attempts dropped last season.

Footballguys view: There's a reason why the Bills made a huge trade for WR Stefon Diggs. Allen should see more consistent help from his receivers this year, led by Diggs.

  Bills | Stefon Diggs turning into a big-play machine    Thu Mar 26, 11:15 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs managed 63 catches - the second-lowest mark of his career - and was charged with a drop on 6.4 percent of his 94 targets - a dramatic increase from two percent in 2018 - but he still finished with a career-high 1,130 receiving yards in 2019 with the Minnesota Vikings due in part to averaging 13.1 yards before the catch per reception. That figure was more than double his 5.6 yards before the catch per reception the previous season.

Footballguys view: Diggs now gets to make big plays for Josh Allen. The Bills needed a true No.1 receiver and that's why they made a big trade for the veteran receiver. With Diggs on the team, John Brown will be a field-stretching No.2 receiver while Cole Beasley will continue to beat up defenses on underneath routes.

  Bills | Buffalo interested in Melvin Gordon    Thu Mar 19, 06:03 PM

Free-agent RB Melvin Gordon (Chargers) is drawing interest from the Buffalo Bills, according to a source Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Gordon has seen the market much softer for his services than he planned on. The Bills have Devin Singletary but could see Gordon as a fine option to work in a RBBC with the second-year pro.

  Bills | Buffalo eyeing Melvin Gordon    Thu Mar 19, 02:49 PM

Free-agent RB Melvin Gordon (Chargers) is drawing interest from the Buffalo Bills, who have spoken with Gordon's representatives, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bills already made a power move when they traded for WR Stefon Diggs. Now, they'll be turning their sights to adding more talent to the backfield. They already have second-year pro Devin Singletary and adding Gordon would cut into his fantasy value. We'll see if the Bills can land the veteran back to pair up with Singletary.

  Bills | Buffalo unlikely to pursue Austin Hooper    Sun Mar 15, 12:06 PM

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent TE Austin Hooper is not expected to receive interest from the Buffalo Bills this offseason, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Hooper is considered the top free agent tight end this year but the Bills aren't looking at the position. They have second-year pro Dawson Knox who should be in line to be their starter and most highly targeted tight end on the roster. Knox has great upside when healthy and should be able to continue building strong chemistry with QB Josh Allen.

  Bills | Frank Gore will continue to play    Wed Mar 4, 03:12 PM

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB Frank Gore plans to continue his playing career and has started to train for 2020.

Footballguys view: Gore is not what he used to be but he can still be an effective veteran backup for any team in need at the position. The Bills are going with Devin Singletary as their primary back but bringing back Gore for another year could make a lot of sense.

  Bills | Buffalo meets with two WRs    Wed Feb 26, 02:25 PM

Alabama WR Henry Ruggs III and Texas Christian WR Jalen Reagor have met with the Buffalo Bills at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Ruggs and Reagor have speed, speed and more speed. We could see Ruggs off the board in the top 10 or top 15 of the 2020 NFL draft. That puts him out of range for the Bills unless they want to trade up. Reagor should be on the board when they pick at No.22 overall, and he could help at the receiver position and in the return game.

  Bills | Tee Higgins to meet with Bills    Wed Feb 26, 02:21 PM

Clemson WR Tee Higgins said he is scheduled to meet with the Buffalo Bills at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Higgins could be a pick for the Bills in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft. They're sitting at the No.22 overall pick and Higgins should be on the board at the time. He's big and can make amazing catches with incredible concentration. Higgins may not be the fastest wide receiver but he wins with size, tenacity and leaping ability. He'd be a perfect No.1 receiver for QB Josh Allen and would work well opposite of WR John Brown.

Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary should see the 'majority' of the backfield touches in 2020, according to Marc Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Singletary looked great as a rookie in 2019. We should see him take on an even larger role this next season. He's got the ability to be a RB2 for Fantasy GMs.

  Bills | Jordan Phillips expected to test market    Sun Feb 23, 12:20 PM

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent DT Jordan Phillips plans to test the free-agent market this offseason.

Footballguys view: There was some buzz about the Bills placing the franchise tag on Phillips but that may not be the case. He's going to have quite a bit of interest if he's allowed to hit the open market. Phillps has 15.0 sacks for his career (since 2015)..and 9.5 of those sacks came in 2019 for the Bills. When he moves on, the Bills can simply shift 2019 first-round pick Ed Oliver into a larger role.

Free-agent CB Josh Norman (Redskins) could receive interest from the Buffalo Bills this season since he has played for head coach Sean McDermott in the past, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Marcel Louis-Jacques.

Footballguys view: Norman is not the player he used to be, but we could see this fit. Some team is going to add him for veteran depth...likely at a cheaper price.

Footballguys view: The veteran defensive tackle has been average with the Bills over the last two years. In 2019, Lotulelei played all 16 games (489 snaps) compiling 19 total tackles, 2.0 sacks and one interception. He's set for a similar role in 2020.

  Bills | Buffalo, Greg Olsen to meet Wednesday    Tue Feb 4, 06:02 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) said he is scheduled to meet with the Buffalo Bills Wednesday, Feb. 5.

Footballguys view: Bills head coach Sean McDermott is familiar with Olsen from his time as a coordinator with the Panthers years ago. Olsen would be a great veteran presence and mentor for an up-and-coming tight end like Dawson Knox. We should see Olsen get quite a bit of interest on the open market.
