Buffalo Bills Circling The Wagons: Fred Jackson, Richie Incognito


The Buffalo Bills will finish up their final mandatory minicamp day today and then have 6 weeks of rest before training camp begins on July 20th.

Here are your daily links for the Buffalo Bills from around the web.

Bills coach Rex Ryan welcomes raised expectations

"Rex Ryan welcomes the raised expectations that come with the Buffalo Bills setting a franchise season-ticket sales record.“Yeah, and they should be (raised),” the first-year coach said after the Bills opened a three-day mandatory minicamp earlier this week.“We’ve got a good football team and great coaches,” Ryan said, before pausing and breaking into a smile. “And an average (coach).”"

Fred Jackson: Roman’s power run game suits me

"Fred Jackson will be playing for his sixth different offensive coordinator in his ninth year in the NFL in 2015.  He’s seen – and been a part of – every offense from Steve Fairchild’s simple run-heavy attack to Chan Gailey’s spread.  But no matter what the offense was, or what it called for Jackson to do, he’s done it.Now Greg Roman is running the offense in Buffalo.  He’s known to be very creative in the run-game, while relying on a power-attack.  But he’s also known to put players in different positions, asking them to do different things based upon personnel match-ups.  And just like it always has, Jackson says all that suits him just fine.“The power running is something I’ve molded myself into being able to do,” Jackson told reporters this week.  “They also ask us to run some routes out of the backfield, and I feel like I’m a guy that can get that done anytime you ask him to.”"

Bills‘ Incognito says he’s matured in time off

"Richie Incognito has lived up to his last name since signing with the Buffalo Bills in February.That’s exactly what the team and player want.Incognito spoke to the Western New York media for just the second time Wednesday, following the second day of the Buffalo Bills’ mandatory minicamp.“The goal is really just kind of assimilate to the team as fast as possible,” Incognito said. “It’s been a nice spring; just come up here and really concentrate on football. Really … get back into a good rhythm.”Incognito understandably will have an increased level of scrutiny on every move he makes given his tumultuous history. He was asked Wednesday whether he feels like he’s changed after more than a year and a half away from football."

LeSean McCoy’s used to being on teams that play musical chairs at quarterback

"Chemistry between a wide receiver and quarterback is paramount to the success of an NFL offense.But it’s good to have the running back on the same page with his team’s passer, too.That will be one of the challenges the Buffalo Bills face when they report to training camp in late July. With Tyrod Taylor, EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel competing for the starting job, there will be fewer opportunities for each of them to develop chemistry with their playmakers than their would if one player got the starting reps.That’s not an entirely new scenario for running back LeSean McCoy, though."

Buscaglia: Bills Minicamp Observations, Day 2

"The offense of the Buffalo Bills took a minor step forward during the team’s first practice of mandatory minicamp. That progress, however much it was, was sent back packing after Wednesday’s performance.This disclaimer should always be used around this time of the year when it comes to player performance: it’s only June. However, this was not a banner day for the Bills offense.That, and some other observations from the day of work:"
