LeSean McCoy Won't Be Suspended By NFL

Jul 13, 2016 11:51 AM

LeSean McCoy won't face NFL discipline from his incident in a Philadelphia club in February.

The league will not punish McCoy, an NFL spokesman told NFL Media's Mike Garafolo on Wednesday. McCoy and three others stood accused of allegedly assaulting a pair of off-duty police officers but was never formally charged.

The Buffalo Bills are hoping McCoy returns to form in his second season with the franchise.

Tyrod Taylor Focused On Winning Games, Not Contract

Jul 11, 2016 3:06 PM

Tyrod Taylor isn't worried about his contract status with the Buffalo Bills.

"The contract situation will play out. My mindset is to go out there and win games," Taylor said. "Do whatever it takes to win games, lead the guys, be the leader on the field, off the field and a commander. But I'm not necessarily focused on the contract. I can't control that. ... I've always been one that focuses on the things I can control, and that's going to be my preparation and how I go out there and play. I'll let everything else take care of itself."

Taylor is set to earn little more than $3 million in 2016 and offseason contract talks spawned little movement on a long-term deal.

In his first season as a starter, Taylor played well, completing 63.7 percent of his passes and threw 20 touchdowns to just six interceptions.

Biopsy Shows No Cancer For Jim Kelly

Jul 8, 2016 7:58 AM

Jim Kelly underwent a biopsy on Thursday, and preliminary results showed no return of cancer, according to a post on his wife's Instagram account.

Kelly had the procedure in New York City after his latest scans following extensive treatment for cancer of the jaw were inconclusive.

The former quarterback, who led the Buffalo Bills to four consecutive Super Bowl appearances in the 1990s, said last week at his annual football camp that he felt good and was cleared to work out. He first announced he had cancer in his jaw in 2013.

Marquise Goodwin Fails To Qualify For Olympics

Jul 5, 2016 10:15 AM

Marquise Goodwin failed to make the U.S. Olympic team in Sunday's trials final despite having had the two longest leaps in the world earlier this year.

Goodwin finished seventh with a long jump of 27 feet, ¾ inches, more than a foot short of Jeffery Henderson's winning jump of 28 2 ¼ inches.

"At the time, it's frustrating, but you really can't dwell on that," the Buffalo Bills wide receiver said. "Life is too good to harp on a situation like that. Maybe at the time I can be a little disappointed, but now I'm alive, and there is so much more to look forward to."

Sammy Watkins Hopes To Be Ready For Camp

Jun 27, 2016 7:20 AM

Sammy Watkins says he hopes to be ready for training camp after suffering a broken foot and having surgery in May.

The initial prognosis was that Watkins would be ready for training camp, but the two sides are now being conservative with rehab.

"You never know. Right now I feel good but I got to go back and train and rehab," he said. "Hopefully it feels good when I run and everything like that. I haven't ran in three or four weeks. Hopefully I'll feel good about it and I'll be on the field in training camp."

Watkins caught 60 passes for 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns last season.

NFL Has Asked Bills About New Stadium Plans

Jun 22, 2016 7:20 PM

Buffalo Bills owner Terry Pegula says the NFL has asked him about his intentions to build a new stadium, but that he has yet to reach any decisions on the issue.

"We'll look into that," Pegula told WGR 550. "We're a different market than [Los Angeles], right?"

Roger Goodell said this month that the Bills have to "stay up" with modern stadiums, but added that decisions about how to extensively renovate or replace the 43-year-old Ralph Wilson Stadium are between Pegula and local political leaders.

"I think they think we need a new stadium, that's where they're coming from," Pegula said. "You listen to that and you make your own judgment. Our stadium is one of the older venues in the league, if not the oldest."

Marquise Goodwin Taking Risk To Chase Olympic Dream

Jun 22, 2016 8:57 AM

Marquise Goodwin knows the risks he's taking to chase his dream of being an Olympic long jumper.

The Buffalo Bills wide receiver has missed offseason workouts this year while training for the track competition.

"I know it is a risk," he said. "I want a second contract. I'd love it to be in Buffalo. I love football. But I know how important it is to live your life like you want to. I know some organizations wouldn't allow that, but Rex (Ryan) does and I'm so appreciative of that."

There have been reports that the Bills will move on from Goodwin if he makes the U.S. Olympic team.

"The way Rex sees it," Goodwin said, "is that you're a man at the end of the day. He said, 'I wouldn't want to take you from a dream of yours. And if that's a dream of yours, go do it.'"
