Buffalo Bills make offer to free-agent RB Reggie Bush

The move also likely is tied to a guarantee in Taylor’s contract that would put Buffalo on the hook for nearly $30 million if he had a serious injury. However, Taylor likely will pass a physical before the Bills would have to exercise their option on him by the March 9 deadline, Rapoport reported Thursday on NFL Total Access. If he passes his physical, the Bills would not have to pay out the injury guarantee in Taylor’s contract.

Speaking on Good Morning Football, Rapoport said Taylor’s future likely isn’t over in Buffalo, even though he lost one of his biggest supporters in ex-coach Rex Ryan, who was fired Tuesday. Rapoport said the Bills simply are interested in seeing what Manuel is capable of one last time before the season ends. Lynn said Wednesday it would be interesting and “good” to see Taylor in the Bills’ offseason program.

It usually goes like this: Successful band/solo artist releases first best-of compilation that’s a huge unit-shifter. Artist releases several more albums in subsequent years, the hit output slows considerably, but a loyal fan base remains, not to mention the ironclad terms of your major label record contract. So, you release “Greatest Hits: Vol. II” or a similar title, a collection of less beloved singles to go with some live tracks and the obligatory “new song” to pad the running time.

That’s pretty much how I view Rex Ryan’s second go-around as a head coach. If Rex’s Jets tenure was a record filled with enduring classics, Ryan’s Bills run was an entertaining, but more modest affair. The hits not quite as big, the collection not as essential, but a retrospective still worth owning if you’re a fan.

Ryan, of course, never had a quarterback like Brady and cheap jerseys and the strength of his résumé is the back-to-back runs to the AFC Championship Game with the Jets’ Mark Sanchez under center. He was able to win there with a ground-and-pound offense and a stellar defense — and for his first few years with the Jets, he was the perfect fit, as he was early on in Buffalo. His bluster instilled confidence in a perpetually beaten-down franchise, changing expectations and attitudes. And his press conference antics were often designed not only for laughs, but to deflect pressure and blame from his players.

But while his over-the-top enthusiasm initially galvanized supporters, it also helped set Ryan up for failure when his teams could not match the outsize expectations. In Buffalo, he was saddled, again, with less-than-stellar quarterback options and that certainly hurt Ryan. It also might have put him at irreparable odds with Whaley. This season, as the Bills struggled, Ryan stuck with Tyrod Taylor while Whaley and others in management wanted to try EJ Manuel, a former first-round draft pick by Whaley. As soon as Ryan was fired, word emerged that Manuel will start in the season finale.cheap jerseys china

Williams’ four-game suspension was announced on Friday. Rookie running back Jonathan Williams was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated last week — while he could be subject to the personal conduct policy, those cases generally aren’t resolved until the subsequent season.

Bush, 31, would add insurance behind starter LeSean McCoy while the team waits out Williams’ suspension. Bush played in just five games in 2015 before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Bush’s injury history is a concern in itself. In 10 NFL seasons, the veteran has played a full 16-game slate twice.

Which takes us to Orchard Park, where the start of the second half of Sunday’s Steelers-Bills game was delayed when a buildup of rubber pellets left the field unplayable. The pellets accumulated as the New Era Stadium grounds crew attempted to clear snow from the field at halftime.

The technology of modern day artificial turf has always inspired a touch of mistrust on this end. Like, for instance, why so flammable? And if you’re green, why the black rubber pellets in moments of distress?

In 2014, taxpayers and the Bills invested $130 million in new renovations at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Stadium upgrades included larger concessions stands, a sports bar, better access into the stadium and wider concourses. The team’s stadium lease with Erie County runs through 2022.

While it’s unknown if Bills fans are clamoring for a new stadium, the organization and its fan base could find some inspiration from the Cleveland Cavaliers’ NBA title victory. Pegula admitted that he stopped watching the series once the Golden State Warriors went up 3-1 in the series.

As Saturday’s practice came to a close before 1,950 at Paul Brown Stadium, Adam Jones walked over to the kneeling Dre Kirkpatrick on the sidelines and told his fellow starting cornerback, “Good practice today.”

And he could have been talking to most of the DBs as they found their legs and had a much better second practice than first. Jones is good most of the time and Kirkpatrick came out of the gate early Saturday with a pick-six in one-on-one. But Smith, a second-year special teamer trying to hold off seventh-rounder Clayton Fejedelem and veteran Jimmy Wilson to keep his job, gets the nod in a close call over Kirkpatrick.

Eifert says he’s in the weight room putting muscle on his calf and quad, as well as moving the ankle when it is out of the boot for exercises. He expects the rehab to speed up once the boot comes off next week, but he’s staying away from any predictions of when he’ll return.jersey

There may be one good thing to come out of it. After spending all last offseason in rehab with his fellow Indiana native, Bengals rehab chief Nick Cosgray, coming back from elbow and shoulder injuries, Eifert led all tight ends on the planet with 13 touchdowns.

“If I can’t do it, I’m just going to walk away. I want to do it for 12. If I sign a two-year deal (after his current extension gets him to nine years), I’ll be gone. Eleven will be fine if my body’s not holding up. Eleven would be great. My goal is 12 to 15. We’ll see. I’ll be 31 (in his ninth year), so I think I can go three or four more years after that.”

He does have some unfinished business. After four seasons of struggling in the post-season, Green put together his best post-season game back in January against the Steelers with five catches for 71 yards. And he was placed in the pantheon when his leaping 25-yard TD catch at the goal line capped a 16-0 run and gave the Bengals a 16-15 lead with 1:50 left in the game.

After starting middle linebacker Rey Maualuga didn’t practice during the spring, the Bengals placed him on the active/no-football injury list. That means Maualuga suffered an injury while not at Paul Brown Stadium. It’s unknown what the injury is, but indications are they expect him to return fairly quickly, maybe as soon as Friday’s first practice at 3 p.m. on the fields adjacent to PBS. He still counts against the 90-man roster limit and can return once he’s cleared medically.

Same with tight end Tyler Eifert (ankle), wide receiver James Wright (knee), and defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee). As expected, they were all put on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list with injuries they received in games.

The award has been given annually by the Bengals since 2002. It honors outstanding high school football coaches in the region and includes a $5000 Bengals donation to Clinton-Massie’s athletic department. The high school is in Clarksville, Ohio, approximately 40 miles northeast of Cincinnati.

McSurley came to Clinton-Massie in 1996 in the role of head football coach and cheap jerseys and physical education teacher, and he has a .787 winning percentage for his 20 seasons. His teams have won 10 or more games each of the last 10 seasons and have qualified for the state playoffs for 15 consecutive years.

“Everybody in the league would like to do it that way,” says the team exec. “It doesn’t always work out. Teams make mistakes with draft choices. They’re not worth a second contract, but they’ve hit on a lot of draft picks and they’re developing the guys they drafted. That’s a big part of it. When I look at the draft they had this year, they had another good draft and they’ve stacked good ones together. And they seem to do it under the radar.”

But as Cincy’s Team eyes its sixth straight post-season appearance, the Bengals are more than a few blips these days in the standings, where they have one of the two best records in the league the last two seasons, and on the balance sheet.
