|Brandon Spikes signs one-year contract with Bills |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/14/14) Former Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes will be staying put in the AFC East. The 26-year-old signed a one-year, $3.25 million deal with the Bills, according to the Associated Press.
Spikes had 86 tackles with the Patriots in 2013.
|Bills add Keith Rivers |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Free agent linebacker Keith Rivers won't have to move far to get to his new home, as the former Giant signed a two-year contract with the Bills Wednesday, according to The Buffalo News. The deal will pay Rivers $5 million over two years, with half of the money guaranteed.
Rivers played in all 16 games for the first time in his career a year ago, but struggled to make much of an impact. He finished with 45 tackles and one sack in his second season with the Giants.
|Jairus Byrd could stay in Buffalo, look at Cleveland |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(2/21/14) Bills safety Jairus Byrd is a free agent this offseason, and he has two scenarios he could explore for his next team.
The first, according to the Buffalo News, is returning to the Bills, possibly under the franchise tag for the second consecutive year. That's something Bills general manager Doug Whaley is mulling over.
"In that situation, you're going to use every option open," Whaley said. "We don't want to put ourselves in a corner, and I don't want to say to you guys, 'We're going to do this,' and then something changes and we don't something different. Then you guys look at me different when you ask me a question. We as an organization, again, we're going to leave every option open for Jairus because we would like him back."
Byrd's tag for this year would be $8.299 million. Many analysts believe that's too much money for a safety.
The other scenario for Byrd is signing in Cleveland and being reunited with former defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who is now the Browns head coach. NFL Network reports there be a possible reunion if Byrd is set free.
|Russ Brandon: Bills optimistic they can extend Jairus Byrd |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/29/14) Bills president Russ Brandon said the contract stalemate with Bills Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd last offseason does not preclude the team from signing him to a long-term contract this year.
"It's a process and there's no carryover," Brandon told The Associated Press. "You start over again and you try to get something done. We just weren't able to come up with a solution that worked for both parties, so you reset it and start again." Brandon added that there are no hard feelings between the team and Byrd or agent Eugene Parker.
Byrd did not return to the Pro Bowl after hurting his back in the first quarter.
|Jim Schwartz planning 'attack scheme' for Bills' defense |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(1/27/14) New Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking forward to working with all of Buffalo's talent up front, led by Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.
"We’re an attack scheme, it’s a scheme built on the guys up front getting after the quarterback," the former Lions coach said Monday. "As much as you want to be multi-dimensional with personnel groups, this league comes down to one on one and I think we have some guys that can do that.
"Whatever anybody wants to tag the system as far as a name, it won’t be us," he added. "We’re just going to try to do whatever we can every week to do the best to have the game plan. I think the similarities you’ll see is it will be as aggressive as it can be and try to be as physical as we can be and it will be an attack style."
|The Bills DST had a lot of hype in 2012 after signing Mario Williams, but the addition didn't change much. The Bills DST was a middle-of-the-pack option with 30 sacks (one more than 2011), and they allowed 395 points, which was tied with Denver for third worst in the NFL. The Bills DST did have 29 takeaways (20 interceptions) and scored four touchdowns, but the unit has plenty of work to do under new coordinator Mike Pettine, who held the same position with the Jets last year. The Jets were known for creative blitz packages, which should help the pass rush, but this unit has a lot to prove before Fantasy owners can trust them. (Updated 4/25/13) |
