We talked about it earlier last month, and seemed to start a firestorm in the process.  Where does C.J. Spiller fall in terms of the Bills long term organizational decisions.  Is he going to be a part for this year and beyond of the Bills team? Spiller hopes that he will stay in Buffalo for “the remainder of this year”.  Past that, it could be another Byrd situation where we don’t get anything but a couple of years of production.  With the trade for Bryce Brown and the attempted trade up for Carlos Hyde, there is a plan for Spiller, but what is it?

With Fantasy Football season upon us, there is nothing better than trying to figure out who would be on your team, and the best possible team.  Will it include any Bills?  Which Bills player would be the one to lead you to a fantasy football championship? [Buffalo Rumblings]

Last year the Bills had a younger linebacker corps that didn’t perform to poorly.  Tough to say they did when you had Kiko Alonso at the helm with 159 tackles but the run defense was porous to say the least.  With that in mind, the Bills looked to build on their new found talent, Alonso, and add more depth to the run defense.  In a two series teaser, the Buffalo Bills defense held the NY Giants to 23 yards and only 1 first down in Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game.  A veteran presence from Keith Rivers, helped with this.  [Daily Messenger]

Before the Hall of Fame game, there were a couple of players that were key individuals to watch.  After the game, it has been revisited, of those 6 players and how they performed in the game.  What re your thoughts on where T.J. Graham falls after getting in for most of the game.  What about Cyrus Kouandjio, Seantrel Henderson and Cyril Richardson? [ESPN]

The Buffalo Bills welcomed back three players that missed the game this past Sunday.  Scott Chandler, Tony Moeaki, and Marquise Goodwin all returned to practice on Tuesday.  The Bills did lose three more players on Tuesday though.  Doug Legursky, Derek Brim and Edawn Coughlin all left practice with injuries.  Leodis McKelvin is still being held to limited practices while still recovering from his hip procedure in the offseason.  [WGR550]
