  News Statistics Roster  
Mike Williams - WR Posted 4/4/14 12:58pm et
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded WR Mike Williams to the Buffalo Bills Friday, April 4, in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in this year's draft.
Huddle Up: Williams played just six games last season as the Bucs' wingman to Vincent Jackson. With Josh McCown now at quarterback in Tampa Bay, prevailing wisdom suggests the Bucs will go after a wide receiver in the first round--likely Mike Evans, giving the Bucs a "twin towers" approach similar to what McCown had in Chicago with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

Scott Chandler - TE Posted 3/23/14 3:37pm et
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler is scheduled make $1.25 million next season and $1.95 million in 2015. The deal also included a $1.2 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Chandler's targets, catches and yardage have increased each of the past 3 seasons, and he's a TE2 after a 53-655-2 performance this past fall.

Anthony Dixon - RB Posted 3/16/14 10:14pm et
Newly signed Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon said he talked with head coach Doug Marrone and expects to receive some carries next season. 'I wanted to go somewhere where somebody was going to put me to work, like I wanted. I talked to coach Marrone. That's their plan, to put me to work.'
Huddle Up: Barring injury to C.J. Spiller or Fred Jackson, it's hard to envision Dixon getting much more work in Buffalo than he did in San Fran, where he also was the No. 3 back, so he should remain off your fantasy radar screen for the time being.

Anthony Dixon - RB Posted 3/14/14 10:51pm et
The Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with free-agent RB Anthony Dixon (49ers). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Throw Dixon in the mix behind Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. Not a lot of opportunity there, at least until one or both of those backs get hurt.

Stevie Johnson - WR Posted 3/10/14 2:13pm et
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson is due a $1.75 million roster bonus Saturday, March 15.
Huddle Up: Johnson's production trailed off dramatically last season, and the Bills were pleased with the progress of rookie wideouts Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. If Buffalo intends to move beyond Stevie, prior to shelling out $1.75 mil would be a good time to do so.

Kevin Kolb - QB Posted 3/10/14 2:13pm et
The Buffalo Bills will have to make a decision on the future of QB Kevin Kolb, who is due a $1 million roster bonus this week. 'It's a tricky situation,' general manager Doug Whaley said. 'We're going to be very careful how we handle this, and the foremost consideration in the whole equation is him being healthy.'
Huddle Up: Kolb is at best the backup to E.J. Manuel in Buffalo; the Bills need to determine if he'll be healthy enough to perform clipboard duties... and if he's worth a million dollars to do so.

Jairus Byrd - S Posted 3/9/14 11:05pm et
The Miami Dolphins have shown interest in free-agent FS Jairus Byrd (Bills).
Huddle Up: Byrd, rated by many as the top FA safety available, is sure to attract a lot of interest, and don't be surprised if all of the Bills' AFC East rivals are at the top of the suitors' list.

Jairus Byrd - S Posted 2/27/14 11:02pm et
The Buffalo Bills' contract talks with impending free-agent FS Jairus Byrd have been pleasant this offseason. The two sides did not have much success in contract talks last offseason.
Huddle Up: The seemingly annual contract negotiations between Byrd and the Bills are in full swing, but the FS is worth the hassle as only CB Asante Samuel has more interceptions (25) over the past 5 seasons than Byrd's 22.

Mario Williams - DE Posted 2/23/14 10:23pm et
Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley said the team likely will not need to ask DE Mario Williams to restructure his contract, even though he is scheduled to count $18.8 million against the salary cap in 2014.
Huddle Up: Looks like the league-wide salary-cap bump helped out Williams who, in his 2nd year in Buffalo, paced the team this past season with 13 sacks -- the second highest total of his career.

C.J. Spiller - RB Posted 2/20/14 5:16pm et
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said RB C.J. Spiller (ankle) was never close to '110 percent' healthy last year with his nagging high ankle sprain. Marrone also reiterated his preference for a two-running back system.
Huddle Up: Despite missing only 1 game, Spiller's total yards and total TDs dropped significantly from his career year in 2012, and expect only a modest increase if the Bills do indeed insist on a 2-back timeshare.

EJ Manuel - QB Posted 2/20/14 5:16pm et
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the team could go in any direction at the quarterback position next season, meaning QB EJ Manuel's job may not be safe.
Huddle Up: Yeah, Manuel missed 6 games this past season but don't think the Bills are going to the pull the plug on their 2013 first-round pick after 10 regular-season starts. Rather it sounds like they're trying to keep a fire lit under the young QB.

Dan Carpenter - PK Posted 2/14/14 11:49am et
The Buffalo Bills could consider using their franchise tag on impending free-agent PK Dan Carpenter.
Huddle Up: Because really, the Bills are just a kicker away from... oh, wait. Never mind.

Stevie Johnson - WR Posted 2/3/14 8:17pm et
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson is scheduled to receive a $1.75 million roster bonus in March. The team likely will have to decide by that time whether they will release Johnson or keep him on the roster.
Huddle Up: Johnson's days as the go-to receiver in Buffalo are likely numbered, and that $1.75 million bonus could be the final straw as the Bills turn to Robert Woods, T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin.

EJ Manuel - QB Posted 1/30/14 8:38pm et
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) underwent minor knee surgery after the regular season concluded. Manuel is currently rehabbing the knee.
Huddle Up: Three knee injuries and two surgeries for the 2013 rookie is certainly concerning, but Manuel will wear a brace and says he hopes to be working out with his pass-catchers come March or April.

Mike Pettine - Posted 1/23/14 1:35pm et
The Cleveland Browns are expected to make an offer to Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine for their head coaching position, according to multiple league sources. If Pettine's third interview with the Browns goes well Thursday, Jan. 23, Cleveland is expected to go ahead with their plans to hire him. Both sides are reportedly highly motivated to get a deal done.
Huddle Up: The Browns have also kicked the tires of Patriots' OC Josh McDaniels and former Bucs coach Greg Schiano this week, but it looks like Pettine is the man for the only team yet to fill its coaching vacancy.

Doug Marrone - HC Posted 12/31/13 11:08am et
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said head coach Doug Marrone informed him that he will be the starting quarterback in 2014.
Huddle Up: No shock here, as the Bills didn't draft Manuel to sit around. They would, however, like him to stay healthy--something he didn't do during his rookie campaign.

EJ Manuel - QB Posted 12/27/13 1:08pm et
Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (shoulder) will receive his second straight start in Week 17 against the New England Patriots because QB EJ Manuel's (knee) knee did not respond to treatment as the team hoped. Lewis, who has an injured left shoulder, took repetitions in team drills Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Lewis actually hasn't been terrible as a starting quarterback but there are still plenty of better fantasy options out there. Expect Buffalo to run the ball a lot on Sunday against a New England defense allowing 132 yards a game on the ground.

Stevie Johnson - WR Posted 12/27/13 3:01pm et
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Johnson and E.J. Manuel have both been ruled out for Week 17. Expect Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller to busy against the Patriots' weak rush defense on Sunday.

EJ Manuel - QB Posted 12/26/13 11:18pm et
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Friday will be a key day to see if Manuel is on track on return after missing the Bills' Week 16 win over the Dolphins.

Fred Jackson - RB Posted 12/25/13 12:41am et
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (ribs) was not on the practice field Tuesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Just a maintenance day for the 32-year-old back, who leads the Bills in yards from scrimmage (1,170) and TDs (9).

Marquise Goodwin - WR Posted 12/25/13 12:41am et
Buffalo Bills WR Marquise Goodwin (knee) was able to participate in practice Tuesday, Dec. 24. 'It's the same injury that he's been having during the year. It's kind of worked the same way. He might've been limited on a day and needed a day or rest and then comes back. We hope it continues to be that way and then we should have him back,' head coach Doug Marrone said.
Huddle Up: The speedy rookie hasn't played since Week 11 but has caught a TD pass in 3 of the last 5 games he's played in. If he's on your Week 17 deep WR sleeper radar, monitor his status throughout the week.

EJ Manuel - QB Posted 12/24/13 10:54pm et
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) was participating in the individual portion of practice Tuesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: It's an encouraging early-week sign for the rookie QB, but see if the progress continues Thursday and Friday.

Stevie Johnson - WR Posted 12/23/13 3:46pm et
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said WR Stevie Johnson (personal) could miss Week 17 because his mother's funeral will be Friday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Keep an eye on his status throughout the week.

Stevie Johnson - WR Posted 12/20/13 12:22pm et
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson (personal) is not practicing Friday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Johnson is dealing with a death in the family, and indications are he won't play this week.

Fred Jackson - RB Posted 12/20/13 12:22pm et
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said he expects RB Fred Jackson (ribs) will be able to play Week 16 even though he is dealing with injured ribs.
Huddle Up: Jackson will continue to share the workload with C.J. Spiller, which takes a bite out of both players' respective fantasy values.

Stevie Johnson - WR Posted 12/19/13 12:43pm et
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson was excused from practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Johnson continues to deal with a death in the family. He played through the situation last week; one could presume he's familiar enough with the game play to do the same this week.

Stevie Johnson - WR Posted 12/18/13 2:32pm et
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said WR Stevie Johnson (personal) is not expected to play Week 16 because of the death of his mother.
Huddle Up: Condolences to Johnson and his family.

EJ Manuel - QB Posted 12/18/13 2:32pm et
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said QB EJ Manuel (knee) will not play Week 16 because of a knee injury. QB Thaddeus Lewis will be the team's starting quarterback. Marrone said Manuel may be able to play Week 17.
Huddle Up: In case you were counting on Manuel, don't. Combined with Steve Johnson's offense, the Bills might have trouble moving the ball this week.

Stevie Johnson - WR Posted 12/16/13 10:47am et
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson played in Week 15, after learning his mother died the previous day.
Huddle Up: Condolences to Johnson and his family. Expect him to miss practice time this week to attend to arrangements.

EJ Manuel - QB Posted 12/16/13 2:41pm et
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) suffered a minor knee sprain Week 15 but was able to remain in the game.
Huddle Up: It seems like he will be just fine for a home showdown against the Dolphins this week.
