Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

The Allen County (Indiana) Coroner's Office on Thursday identified the body of a man found in the Maumee River on Wednesday as former Buffalo Bills receiver James Hardy. Hardy's cause of death has not yet been determined. He was 31 years old. His body was found lodged in a dam in the river, according to the Fort Wayne Police Department. According to multiple reports, Hardy's mother reported her son was missing on May 30. Hardy, who was from Fort Wayne, played two seasons for the Bills (2008 and '09). The Bills selected Hardy in the second round (41st overall) of the 2008 draft after the receiver compiled 191 receptions for 2,740 yards and 36 touchdowns at Indiana University. The Bills sent their

Friday, July 14th, 2017

For the first time since 2013, the public will see O.J. Simpson live next week when he appears at a televised parole hearing. The televised Trial of the Century back in 1995, in which Simpson was acquitted in the double murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, captivated the nation. All eyes will no doubt be on the former USC and Buffalo Bills football star once again, though Simpson, who just turned 70, will look very different.

PFT preseason power rankings No. 23: Buffalo Bills

Friday, July 14th, 2017

With Rex Ryan and Doug Whaley out as coach and General Manager, respectively, there’s no question that this is a transitional year in Buffalo. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor got a new contract this offseason, but the Bills can back out of it after this season if coach Sean McDermott and General Manager Brandon Beane decide he’s not the right guy for the job over the long haul. Taylor’s two years as a starter have featured many positives, but he’ll likely need to be even better and more consistent this year to secure his place in Buffalo.

Who is Jim?

President Trump landed in Paris on Thursday but he probably won't get to see his Francophile pal Jim on the trip. That's because Jim, who "loves Paris," doesn't go to Paris anymore. "Paris is no longer Paris," Jim told the president, as was recounted by Trump to the Conservative Political Action Conference in March. Here's the thing: Nobody knows who Jim is. Trump has never offered Jim's last name and "the White House has not responded to a request for comment about who Jim is or whether he will be on the trip," The Associated Press reports. A deep-dive into Jim's identity by The New Yorker in March also yielded no results: Trump doesn't follow any Jims on Twitter. But it's easy to find Jims

In shadow of NBA megadeals, Sammy Watkins hopes NFL players can cash in

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

After the first day of NBA free agency Saturday resulted in some players agreeing to contracts in excess of $100 million, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins took to Twitter on Sunday to promote NFL players getting bigger paydays. Watkins, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2014 draft, also retweeted NFL player promoter Jake Steinberg, who wrote, "NFL players have the right to be pissed. They get the smallest piece of the pie. NFL has $12B in annual revenue; NBA has $5B." In May, the Bills declined Watkins' fifth-year option for 2018 that would have paid their top receiver $13.3 million.
