- Full Schedule
As usual, the Ryan brothers and the Bills keep things interesting, even during the NFL's downtime.
Vegas doesn't doubt New England
No Tom Brady, no problem, at least in Las Vegas. Even with Jimmy Garoppolo set to start four games, New England is heavily favored to win the AFC East by the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
Two Bills make all-retirement team
Percy Harvin and A.J. Tarpley are far from the most accomplished players on our squad, but each fills a role. All-retirement team
Stephon Gilmore reported to Bills training camp, but he channeled his inner Marshawn Lynch to make it clear why. The fifth-year CB doesn't want to get fined while he looks for a hefty extension. Unhappy with contracts
Who are the locks to make the Bills' 53-man roster and who's on the bubble?
Good luck stopping these big fellas
Since 2011, four defensive tackles have averaged at least six sacks per season. Leading the way is Geno Atkins, who has 40 sacks in that span despite missing seven games in 2013 due to a torn ACL.
Rex will be happy to miss Brady in Week 4
While Rex Ryan has given Tom Brady fits at times, the Patriots QB still has won 11 of the pair's 14 meetings. Ryan and Brady will meet just once this year (Week 8 in Buffalo) due to the latter's suspension.
The Bills hired Zak Kromer, the son of Aaron Kromer, the team's offensive line coach, as an entry-level assistant. They were charged with misdemeanor battery last year, but charges were dropped.

Zac Kromer, the son of Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer, has been hired by Buffalo as a coaching assistant. The younger Kromer, 22, was charged along with his father with misdemeanor battery in an incident over beach chairs in Florida last summer. The charges against both Kromers were later dropped.
Friendly early slate for the Bills?
Buffalo's first four games include two non-playoff teams from a year ago and the Tom Brady-less Patriots. Two of the four are against AFC East foes, against whom the Bills have done well the last two seasons.
Mike Rodak details a few situations that can play out involving the Bills' top two free agents next spring, CB Stephon Gilmore and QB Tyrod Taylor:
Can Sammy Watkins kick the injury bug?
He's been great when on the field, but Watkins' injury problems continued with offseason foot surgery. His health will remain a concern until he proves otherwise. Biggest injury questions
Things looking up for the Bills?
Buffalo has yet to make a playoff appearance this millennium, but the Bills are making progress. With training camp on the horizon, ESPN Stats & Info explains. Top stats to know
Phil Loadholt part of growing NFL trend
The Vikings lineman has called it quits after seven years, making him the 13th player age 30 or younger to hang up his cleats this offseason.
Why Michael Bennett is frustrated
It's easy to understand why Bennett wants more money from the Seahawks. Several recent contracts for D-linemen have featured guarantees more than three times what Bennett received on his current deal.
Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore ended speculation that he could hold out from training camp when he told ESPN on Monday that he will report.
Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer
Bills CB Stephon Gilmore will not hold out in hopes of a new contract, telling ESPN NFL Insider Josina Anderson, "I'm planning to go out to training camp. I know what I am. It'll happen eventually." Gilmore previously said, "We'll see" in June when asked if he would report to training camp and play out the final year of his rookie contract at $11.082 million.
Mike Rodak joins John Clayton and he says the Bills may be looking at a hot seat for Rex Ryan depending on how they do in the first half of the season.

Taylor has a lot riding on 2016 season
If Tyrod Taylor can have another big season in Buffalo, he could earn a long-term deal from the Bills or another team on the open market. Clayton: Best 2017 free agents (Insider)
Aaron Williams would love for the Bills to bring back Fred Jackson to help a backfield depth chart that has some questions.
