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.

Mike Glennon, Tampa Bay Buccaneers strike contract

It’s not shocking that he dislikes any change to the NFL‘s very, very, very (yaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwn) traditional approach to jerseys. His favorite team is the Steelers! And while the true-school approach works for Pittsburgh, a team built on black-and-blue, ground-and-pound football, it doesn’t work for everyone.

For a young team like the Bucs, a team whose iconic look is probably STILL the creamsicle uniforms of the “Bucs suck!” days … what do you have to lose by going for a daring, modern rollout, one that runs 100 percent counter to the glory days of Bradshaw and Franco?

The Buccaneers already began to move on from Revis on Tuesday. The team locked up cornerback Alterraun Verner to a four-year, $26.5 million contract with $14 million in guarantees Tuesday. Revis earned $16 million last year.

This move wasn’t about Revis’ play, but about his salary and the new Buccaneers regime. New general manager Jason Licht and coach Lovie Smith didn’t care how many draft picks the Bucs gave up last year. They didn’t want to pay him $6 million more than any other cornerback in the league.

No matter how good Glennon looked in practice, this season in Tampa Bay isn’t about him. It’s about if Freeman evolves from a wildly talented but inconsistent quarterback to someone the franchise wants to rely on long term. The Bucs hedged their bets by taking Glennon, who now is under contract cheaply through 2016.

Glennon’s arm and pocket toughness stood out among draft prospects this year, but his accuracy was a big question mark. Aside from a lack of mobility, he reminded us a little of a poor man’s Freeman because he’ll wow you one play and frustrate you the next.jersey

Yet, Houston was willing to let him go after he struggled last year. The Texans were trying to trade the safety prior to his release from the team on Monday. Pro Football Focus ranked him as their No. 78 safety out of 87 eligible at the position in 2014.

His arrival in Tampa will surely encourage opponents to test the Buccaneers’ secondary in 2015. Swearinger and the oft-injured Conte won’t scare opposing offenses. Both players will have a lot to prove next season and they’ll have plenty of opportunity to do so.

It was a ransom and, it turned out, it was a masterstroke by Glazer, who died Wednesday at the age of 85 as a Super Bowl-winning owner. The Bucs compiled a .300 winning percentage in their 19 seasons before Glazer bought them for $192 million. They went to the playoffs seven times under Glazer. Gruden’s Buccaneers — largely the same team assembled during Dungy’s tenure — won the Bucs’ lone championship in Gruden’s first year in Tampa — by beating the Raiders, no less.

Glazer would enjoy more sustained success as the owner of the Premier League’s Manchester United. But Man U. was an old and revered soccer club before Glazer, much to the consternation of many English soccer fans, purchased it in 2005. It was his extreme makeover of the Bucs, powered by a willingness to spend for players and cheap nfl jerseys and Gruden without a desire to meddle, that made Tampa a respectable team, and his demand that a new stadium be built — Raymond James Stadium was publicly financed — that has lured two Super Bowls to the city since it opened in 1998.

Tampa Bay now has defeated Miami, Atlanta and Detroit in three consecutive weeks. And in the game just before this winning streak, the Bucs largely outplayed the Seahawks — in Seattle — before losing in overtime.

Amazingly, the Bucs are doing this without star running back Doug Martin, who was lost for the season with a shoulder injury in Week 7, as well as his backup, Mike James, who filled in admirably before breaking his ankle in the Dolphins game. While 3-8 is an underachieving record, you can’t say this team has packed it in.
