Free agent OG Richie Incognito informed the Bills he will not retire before they granted his release on Monday.

Some teams in the Bills' position wouldn't budge after feeling a player turned his back on them, but Buffalo quickly allowed Incognito to move on and begin engaging other teams. Although he's a short-term fix going on age 35, Incognito is plenty capable of helping a team at guard. The Ravens with ex-Bills OC Greg Roman make sense. The Bengals could also use another upgrade inside.

Bills released OG Richie Incognito.

Incognito retired last month, but he reportedly flirted with the idea of reporting to the Bills' offseason program, and has now been granted his release. Incognito turns 35 before the season, but he has continued to play at a high level. He was PFF's No. 12 overall guard in 2017 and No. 7 in pass blocking. If his heart is still in it, Incognito should not struggle to land a starting job.

Free agent WR Russell Shepard visited the Bills on Tuesday.

Coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane can't quit former Panthers. The Bills' receiver corps is one of the few where Shepard might have a legitimate shot at cracking the 53-man roster this summer.
May 15 - 6:48 PM

Free agent DE Ryan Russell will visit the Bills on Wednesday.

Russell was a restricted free agent who didn't earn an offer from the Bucs. Russell appeared in a career-high 14 games last season, making seven starts. He tallied two sacks on 456 snaps, earning negative marks from Pro Football Focus. Russell turned 26 in January.

Bills signed No. 16 overall pick LB Tremaine Edmunds to a four-year contract.

Bills traded the No. 22, No. 65 and No. 154 overall picks to move up six spots and take Edmunds on Day 1 of the draft. There was an initial debate over where he would play, but the Bills will reportedly leave him inside. With Lorenzo Alexander playing the strong side, Edmunds will take over for Preston Brown and be a Week 1 starter and signal-caller. Trent Murphy and Matt Milano are expected to compete for the starting weakside spot.

Free agent RB Kenjon Barner is visiting the Bills on Tuesday.

A sixth-round pick by the Panthers in 2013, Barner has made appearances for the Eagles in each of the last three seasons. If signed, he would look to help out on special teams and compete for a role behind LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory.
May 8 - 11:20 AM

Bills general manager Brandon Beane said he was 'working hard' on acquiring the No. 4 overall pick from the Browns in last week's draft.

"I probably talked to John Dorsey more than anybody through the process, but we could not come to an agreement on what was fair," Beane said. Beane also reportedly had a deal in place to trade the Nos. 12, 22, and a second-round pick to the Broncos in exchange for the No. 5 overall pick. That deal was nixed by Denver since Bradley Chubb was still available at No. 5. Despite entering last week's draft with six of the first 100 picks, the Bills will arguably take the field with one of the league's worst offenses in Week 1.
May 5 - 10:11 AM

Bills GM Brandon Beane said the team won't pursue free agent Dez Bryant.

Beane said the Bills watched Bryant "on tape" but won't pursue the free agent any further. "If we thought that was the right fit for us, we definitely would potentially pursue it," Beane continued. Bryant reportedly turned down a multi-year contract from the Ravens recently and continues to seek out a one-year, prove-it deal. The Cardinals and Packers have been linked to Bryant, though nothing concrete has materialized to this point.
Apr 28 - 7:52 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns are shopping the No. 4 pick.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero adds Cleveland has had "a lot of conversations" about a trade. The fourth-overall pick is a potential move up spot for teams looking to draft a quarterback. The Browns would get multiple Day 2 picks if they trade down, but it may put them out of the range of Saquon Barkley and NC State DE Bradley Chubb.
Apr 25 - 7:09 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Monday that the Bills are unlikely to trade up to No. 2 in the draft, but may make a move to No. 5 or 6.

The Bills, of course, are in the quarterback market and have two first-rounders, two second-round picks, and two third-rounders to use as trade bait. "From what I understand, it's not going to be one of those things where they just sell out and (trade) all the way to No. 2 with the Giants," Rapoport said. "I would be at this moment surprised if that happens." Rapoport considers a deal with the Broncos at No. 5 or Colts at No. 6 much more likely.

Apr 23 - 4:59 PM

The Cardinals, Ravens, Bills, and Packers have shown interest in free agent Dez Bryant.

All four teams Schefter lists have adequate cap space to sign Bryant. The Bills would be an interesting landing spot if only because Bryant would immediately become the focal point of a passing game that saw LeSean McCoy lead the team in both targets and receptions from the backfield last season. Joining the Packers sans Jordy Nelson would still give Bryant the best fantasy outlook for 2018.
Apr 14 - 12:47 PM

Bills LG Richie Incognito may report to the Bills' offseason program Monday.

Incognito announced his retirement less than a week ago but cryptically tweeted at Buffalo's Media Relations Department late Friday evening "See you Monday for off season program #madeyalook". The Bills would undoubtedly welcome him back with open arms since they will already be without LT Cordy Glenn and C Eric Woods on the left side of the line this upcoming season.
Apr 14 - 10:10 AM

Free agent DT Tenny Palepoi is visiting the Bills on Thursday.

Palepoi remains an early-down run stopper as he's graded out poorly at Pro Football Focus as a pass rusher the last two seasons. He would serve as depth behind new Bills DT Star Lotulelei, who signed a five-year, $50 million contract with the team in free agency. Palepoi will turn 28 in December.
Apr 12 - 5:09 PM

Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph will not attend the NFL draft.

Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson are all attending. Baker Mayfield declined an invite, but Rudolph is a notable snub. It’s a sign Rudolph may be more of an early Day 2 pick than late first-rounder. Rudolph has been linked as a potential replacement for Tom Brady in New England. The Bills, Chargers, Saints and Giants have also had pre-draft Rudolph visits.

Patriots signed WR Jordan Matthews, formerly of the Bills, to a one-year contract.

The Patriots were in the receiver market after trading Brandin Cooks. Matthews is the opposite of Cooks' deep threat but has been a compiler over the middle of the field in between injuries and drops. Supposedly healthy after an injury-ruined 2017 in Buffalo — he underwent both knee and ankle surgery in December — Matthews fits the profile of a Patriots slot machine, at least on paper. We wouldn't consider him a lock to make the 53-man roster, but he will be an interesting name to track this summer.
Apr 5 - 8:22 PM

Texans signed QB Joe Webb, formerly of the Bills, to a one-year, $1.015 million contract.

A jack-of-all-trades backup, Webb attempted eight rushes for the Bills last season. Perhaps he will push Brandon Weeden for No. 2 duties in Houston, but Webb's value mostly comes on special teams these days.
Apr 5 - 3:28 PM

Free agent CB Phillip Gaines will visit the Bills.

Gaines visited the Colts last week, a telling sign the Chiefs have no interest in re-signing him. He would strictly serve as depth in Buffalo behind Tre'Davious White and Vontae Davis. Gaines 'earned' PFF's third-worst coverage grade out of 121 qualifiers at cornerback last season.
Mar 24 - 10:50 AM

Browns signed CB E.J. Gaines, formerly of the Bills, to a one-year, $4 million contract.

He also visited the Jets and Cardinals before coming to his decision. In Cleveland, Gaines will be reunited with DC Gregg Williams, who coached him during his time in Los Angeles. The 26-year-old should fill the vacancy left by Jason McCourty, who was dealt to New England last week. Cleveland has remade its secondary this offseason by adding T.J. Carrie, Terrance Mitchell, Damarious Randall and now Gaines.
Mar 23 - 1:44 PM

Cowboys signed WR Deonte Thompson, formerly of the Bills, to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

He will get a $1 million signing bonus. Thompson showed surprisingly well last season with the Bills, catching 27 passes for 430 yards and a score in 11 games. As it stands, he should slot in as the No. 4 receiver in Dallas.
Mar 22 - 12:04 PM

Free agent ILB Karlos Dansby visited the Bills.

He's the third linebacker Buffalo has met with following visits with Will Compton and Kevin Minter. Dansby appeared in all 16 games for Arizona last season while leading the team with 95 tackles. The Bills are looking to replace Preston Brown, who bolted to Cincinnati this offseason after logging 1,098 snaps as the team's starting middle linebacker in 2017.
