If there was one position the Buffalo Bills absolutely had to address in this year’s draft, regardless of whether they were getting the best player available at the selection, it was guard. After having turnstiles at both the left and right guard position in 2014, the Bills’ starting spots at the position remain wide open.

That makes it likely that their third-round pick in this year’s draft, John Miller, will be a starter right away for the Bills in his rookie season. A four-year starter at Louisville, Miller should be up to the task.

Friday, May 1st, 2015

BBD Contributor: Brian Krosky

Thursday night came and passed as the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft came to a conclusion. The Buffalo Bills did not make a selection, having traded their first- and fourth-round picks in their move up for Sammy Watkins in last year’s draft, so they will make their first two picks of the draft Friday, on Day 2.

It’s imperative that the Bills get value in the limited picks they have this year. Here is a look, before they make their first picks on Friday, at how they could obtain that value with their six selections between Rounds 2 and 7.

Buffalo Bills 2015 Schedule Announced

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

BBD Editor: Dan Hope

The Buffalo Bills’ schedule for their 16-game 2015 NFL regular season was announced Tuesday.

New coach Rex Ryan and the Bills will open the season at home against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. ET. They will remain at home for Week 2, when Rex and the Bills will have their first of two opportunities this season to play the defending champion New England Patriots at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 20.

The second game against the New England Patriots, set for Nov. 23 (Week 11), is also notable in that it will be the Bills’ first appearance on ESPN’s Monday Night Football since 2009. That game will be part of a back-to-back set of midseason weekday primetime games, as the Bills will play Rex Ryan’s former team, the New York Jets, on NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football, in Week 10 (Nov. 12). Both of those games—the Bills’ only night contests this year—will be played on the road.

The Bills’ game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, which will be the first game to streamed as a digital-only worldwide broadcast, is set for Oct. 25 (Week 7) at 9:30 a.m. ET.

In Week 14, the Bills will travel to Philadelphia to play the Eagles (Dec. 13, 1 p.m. ET), a game in which new Bills running back LeSean McCoy and new Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso will square off against their former teams.

Finally, the Bills will close the season against the Jets at home on Jan. 3 at 1 p.m. ET.

The Bills’ full schedule for the 2015 season is below.

More than a month after the start of free agency, former Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Chris Hairston announced Wednesday, via his Twitter account, that he will be signing with the San Diego Chargers. (Update: The Chargers officially announced the signing of Hairston on Wednesday night.)

Selected by the Bills in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL draft, Hairston appeared in 41 games for Buffalo over the course of four seasons. He started seven games as a rookie and eight games in 2012, but spent the entire 2013 season on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list, then played just 38 snaps this past season, according to Pro Football Focus.
