by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) 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.

Bills add Keith Rivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) 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
(2/21/2014) 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
(1/29/2014) 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
(1/27/2014) 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."


Aaron Williams lobbying for Bills to re-sign Jairus Byrd


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Bills strong safety Aaron Williams is pushing for the team to re-sign free safety Jairus Byrd, an impending free agent. "A lot of people have been hassling me about calling Jairus,” Williams told WGR SportsRadio 550. “I’m going to be totally honest with you. I would love for my boy to come back. We’re the best safety duo in the league in my opinion. I don’t think any other safeties had the numbers that we did this year.

"Unfortunately, it’s above my pay scale to handle all that. All I can do is trust the guys upstairs in the front office," he added. "I know they want Jairus back. At the same time, the business side of it gets a little ugly. I put my opinion on it and let it go and hopefully it goes in my favor and the team’s favor.”

Williams and Byrd each had four interceptions this season, tying Seattle's safety tandem of Earl Thomas (5) and Kam Chancellor (3) for the league lead.


Bills seeking to keep Jairus Byrd


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) The Bills are planning to make a push to keep free agent free safety Jairus Byrd in the fold, per the team website.

General manager Doug Whaley hopes that Byrd's positive feelings for secondary coach Donnie Henderson and his teammates will motivate him to re-sign with Buffalo.

"Everything we heard is he really enjoyed coach Henderson and he loves his teammates and I think he likes the defensive scheme that [defensive coordinator Mike Pettine] employs so those are all positives and hopefully we can use that in our negotiation."

Byrd finished 2013 with four interceptions and 48 tackles despite missing the first five games to injury.


Aaron Williams undergoes surgery


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2014) Bills strong safety Aaron Williams tweeted Thursday that he has undergone surgery, but did not disclose any details, per the team website. He finished the season on IR with a rib injury sustained in Week 15.

Pair of Bills make All-Pro second team


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) Bills defensive end Mario Williams and safety Jairus Byrd landed second-team recognition on the All-Pro team released by Associated Press.

Jim Leonhard wants to play one more year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Bills safety Jim Leonhard, an unrestricted free agent, wants to play a 10th season before he retires. “I want to play one more and that’s it,” Leonhard told the team's website. “I know that. I’ve known that for a couple of years. I want to get 10 (years). Whether that’s here or somewhere else is yet to be determined, but I’m definitely open to the possibility of coming back."

Leonard, 31, did not miss a game this season, finishing with 41 tackles and four interceptions.


Kiko Alonzo records 14 tackles in loss to Patriots


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso was a rarity on Sunday. He actually made some tackles against Patriots backs who ran wild against the Bills. Alonso led both teams with 14 tackles, including a game-high six solos. He added a TFL for good measure.

Only a sack prevents Bills DST from getting zilch


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) The Bills DST was not a strong Fantasy play in Week 17 - and that's an understatement. They surrendered 34 points and 382 yards to the Patriots and couldn't not even record a turnover. All that prevented them from going scoreless was one measly sack.

Jairus Byrd questionable to return after hurting ankle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Bills Pro Bowl safery Jairus Byrd injured his ankle in the first quarter of the game Sunday at New England. His return was deemed questionable, but he was ruled out just before halftime.

Marcell Dareus suspended by team for first half Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus has been forced to the sideline for the first half of the game Sunday against New England for violation of team rules. That violation was not specified, but Buffalo media has speculated it was for his continuing lateness for meetings. He had also been suspended for the first quarter in Week 16.

Pass-catching combo heads Bills inactive report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Quarterback EJ Manuel (knee) and wide receiver Steve Johnson (personal) headline the inactives released Sunday by the Bills.

The others listed are offensive lineman Mark Asper and Antoine McClain, wideout Cordell Roberson defensive back Brandon Smith and running back Ronnie Wingo


Kyle Williams green-lighted for Sunday battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams will play Sunday against the Patriots despite an Achilles problem that had him deemed probable.

Handful of Bills probable for Week 17 battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Bills have deemed five players as probable for Sunday at New England, including quarterback Thad Lewis (shoulder), who has replaced doubtful EJ Manuel (knee) as the starter, and running back Fred Jackson (ribs).

The others are wideouts Marcus Easley and Marquise Goodwin with knee injuries and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (Achilles).


Bills defense hot, but DST a weak play at New England


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The good news for Fantasy owners of the Bills DST heading into the Week 17 clash at New England is that they lead the NFL with 56 sacks, rank second in interceptions with 22 and are coming off a shutout of Miami.

The bad news is everything else, including the matchup against a Patriots team that found itself offensively in early November and has been its usual explosive self ever since. New England has averaged a ridiculous 461 yards and 33 points in its last seven games.

The Bills defense sticks out like a sore thumb in some areas despite the shut-down performance against the Dolphins. They rank 21st in passing touchdowns allowed (27) and 23rd in rushing yards yielded (1,796). Those are not good areas to be weak in for a game at New England.

Their sack total is encouraging, especially since the Patriots offensive line has been porous at times. But Brady has just 10 interceptions all season and his team is not prone to turnovers. There are more reasons than not to keep the Bills DST out of your Fantasy lineups in Week 17.


Aaron Williams probably a no-go for season finale


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) It appears that Bills free safety Aaron Williams (ribs) will finish the season on the inactive list for two straight games. Doug Marrone has all but ruled him out for Sunday at New England, per WGR-550.

If he is indeed out, the emerging Williams will finish the year with 82 tackles, 11 passes defensed and four interceptions.


Bills dominate at line of scrimmage, shutout Miami


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Buffalo's game against the Dolphins in Week 17 turned out to be a match made in heaven for the Bills' pass rush. The Bills abused Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill all game long in a 19-0 win.

The Bills tossed their first shutout of the season, largely on the strength of an absurdly dominant pass rush. The Bills sacked Ryan Tannehill seven times and hit him countless others, eventually knocking him out in the fourth quarter. His replacement, Matt Moore, continued the good times for the Bills, tossing a pair of picks.

The Bills forced those two turnovers in addition to the seven sacks, while holding Miami to one of its worst games in franchise history. The 103 yards of total offense Miami finished with is the third-worst total in franchise history.

The Bills preyed on a vulnerable Dolphins' offensive line for the shutout Sunday, but they have a much tougher matchup in Week 17. The Bills DST has to close out the season on the road against the Patriots, a team that just put up 41 points Sunday. 


Bills duo combines for interceptions


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Bills defensive backfield came up with a pair of interceptions in Week 16, and both helped clinch a 19-0 win over the Dolphins in the second half. Corner Leodis McKelvin picked off one of the passes for the first of his season, and safety Jim Leonhard had the other, his fourth of the season.
