Bills Cut OG Chris Williams After Failed Physical

Buffalo Bills v Carolina Panthers

The Bills cut offensive guard Chris Williams, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

He failed his physical.

A former first-round draft pick, Williams played in just three games for the Bills last season after signing a four-year contract with them the previous offseason.

He injured his back and was placed on injured reserve.

Bills RB McCoy Hosting a “Private Event Celebration” – Females Wanted

LeSean McCoy is evidently looking to get to know some ladies in his new home in Buffalo.

The new Bills back has thrown out an invite for a party, a “private event celebration” at a ‘private location’ and oh by the way – you have to be a female to attend – 21 and over female.

How this can end good is anyone’s guess, as it sounds like a whole lot of trouble for the running back, and sounds like he’s not learned from the many times players have gotten in trouble for events like this.

The “Biggest Gut-Punch Loss” in Bills History? SI Has One Everyone Remembers

dal_sbmoments_02

Sports Illustrated has put out a piece on the “Biggest gut-punch loss” for each and every franchise, the Bills included.

The game that the author the piece, Doug Farrar, picked is an interesting one – a game that stopped the Bills from winning a Super Bowl – and one that haunts fans to this day.

Buffalo Bills: Jan. 27, 1991, Super Bowl XXV—Giants 20, Bills 19

This was the first of four straight Super Bowls the Bills lost in the early 1990s, and the only one of the four that was remotely close. The Bills came in as the favorite to win, with their flashy “K-Gun” no-huddle offense. But the Giants, coached by Bill Parcells and quarterbacked by backup Jeff Hostetler, had the perfect strategy to stop Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas and Andre Reed: keep them off the field. Big Blue held the ball for over 40 minutes in the game, and there was a point on either end of the half where the Bills didn’t get the ball for more than a full hour on the clock. The Bills were sloppy on defense, especially on third down, but they did hold a 19–17 lead in the fourth quarter that was then eliminated by Matt Bahr’s 21-yard field goal.

And when it came time for Bills kicker Scott Norwood to win the game with four seconds left… well, we all know what happened. A 47-yard field goal attempt went wide right, sending the Bills on their way to an ignominious streak. This was the most painful of their Super Bowl losses, because it’s the one they really should have won.

Bills Release OL Wayne Hunter

New York Jets v Miami Dolphins

Pro Football Talk reports that the Bills have said so long to offensive lineman Wayne Hunter:

Offensive lineman Wayne Hunter had been out of the NFL since being released in March 2013 before the Bills signed him earlier this month, but his return to the league turned out to be a brief one.

The NFL’s daily transactions report brings word that the Bills have released Hunter after just a few weeks with the team.

Hunter signed with the Bills after working out for the team near the end of their offseason program, but the quick decision to part ways with him suggests the Bills have either grown more comfortable with the other depth options on their roster or decided that Hunter’s long layoff made him unlikely to help the team this season.

Whatever the reason, the fact that the Bills are coached by Rex Ryan, who made Hunter a starting right tackle with the Jets, and didn’t even take him to training camp doesn’t bode well for another shot at continuing his pro career.

Bills May Be Forced To Have a Tough Decision to Make with QB Matt Cassel

Minnesota Vikings v New Orleans Saints

Matt Cassel is by far the most experienced quarterback on the Bills’ roster and still very much has a chance to win what will remain an open competition entering training camp.

If he can clean up his accuracy and interception problems from OTAs and minicamp, the opportunity will be there for him to win the starting job, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

But Cassel was noticeably worse than Manuel and Taylor in the six practices open to reporters this spring. He was inaccurate, made poor decisions with the ball and was intercepted more than the other two quarterbacks.

Cassel is several years removed from his career-best 2010 season with the Kansas City Chiefs, and at this point in his career he simply might not be a capable NFL starting quarterback.

If his training camp and preseason performances show that to be true, the Bills have a financial decision to make with him. If they release Cassel before the start of the regular season, they would save $4.15 million, an amount the Bills could then carry over into 2016 to give them some much-needed cap relief.

Several NFL teams (including the Bills last season) are opting for only two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster and, at the moment, Manuel and Taylor appear to be the best options for that scenario.

Bills Safety Duke Williams Gets Owned Over DM’s to Adult Star Mia Khalifa

As Direct Messages on Twitter go, as a professional athlete you had better be careful on who you send them to, and make sure that person isn’t the type to turn you in looking for something other than ‘friendship.’

That’s what happened to Bills safety Duke Williams, who was looking for love in all the wrong places with Adult Star and super sports fan Mia Khalifa.

Khalifa took a screen shot at some messages that Williams had sent to her, basically telling him to bug off in the process.

Let’s hope that if Williams has a steady girlfriend she stays off the internet for the foreseeable future.
