2016 Schedule
8-8, 3rd in AFC East

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills CB Stephon Gilmore has reported to training camp. He told ESPN's Josina Anderson earlier this week that he would show up to camp and play out the final year of his rookie contract, avoiding a holdout in hopes of a new deal.

Will Felton's cap be affected?

The Bills made Jerome Felton the league's highest-paid fullback last offseason, but they also signed Glenn Gronkowski (youngest brother of Rob Gronkowski) as an undrafted free-agent this spring. Could that put Felton, and his $2.3 million cap number, at risk? Under-the-radar storylines

Can another team win the AFC East?

In Bill Belichick's 16 years in charge, the Patriots have failed to win the AFC East just three times, including 2008, when Tom Brady tore his ACL in Week 1. Perhaps Brady's suspension this year will crack the door further open.

Speaking for the first time since his "we won the offseason" quote last month, Rex Ryan tells WGR 550 of his declaration, "I might not be the most articulate guy or anything else, so those things happen. All I meant was that we did so good, the players we had, I was proud of them, I was proud of the way they worked, I was proud of the effort they put in. And we'll see. I just think we want to show everybody that this is a good football team and we're working as hard as any team in this league."

Asked if Rex Ryan "lost his team" last season, current Patriots and former Bills WR Chris Hogan tells WEEI, "He didn't lose the team, ever. It was a grind the entire time we were there. There's a lot of good players over there, and it's just a matter of everyone meshing as one over there. If they get that together, they'll be a good team."

Asked about the differences between Rex Ryan and Bill Belichick, current Patriots and former Bills WR Chris Hogan tells WEEI, "They both care about the sport that they coach, and they bring a lot of passion to it. They both have their ways of going about things, and we'll leave it at that."

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Patriots WR and former Bills WR Chris Hogan to WEEI about Week 4 game against Buffalo: "I've already marked that one down."

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills co-owner Kim Pegula asked by WGR 550 what the expectations are for this season: "Win. Winning. ... We're expecting better communication, and we're expecting wins."

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.

Unhappy Gilmore

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

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.

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.
