Buffalo Bills Circling the Wagons: Defense, Corey Graham


 We are another day closer, less than 3 days away from the start of training camp.  The Buffalo Bills are set to take the field and we as fans are ready to see what the changes and improvements that have been made during the offseason look like.

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

Will the Bills defense be as dominant in 2015?

"Quarterback.  Two new guards.  The running game.  Uncertainty at tackle.  In no particular order (well, except for quarterback being first), these are the answers usually given by Bills fans if asked what concerns them headed into the 2015 season.What you don’t find on this list? Anything that has to do with defense.It’s generally considered and accepted that the Bills will once again have one of the top defenses in the National Football League.  And why not?  It’s a unit that returns ten of eleven starters after finishing fourth overall in both yards and points allowed per game, and third in yards per play allowed last season.  And even though they lost the man many view mostly responsible for harnessing that talent, Jim Schwartz, they’re now going to be coached by Rex Ryan, considered one of the best defensive minds in the game over the past decade."

"It’s all about the quarterback at St. John Fisher College. What else is new for the Buffalo Bills, right?Isn’t it always about the never-ending search for a competent player at the game’s most important position for this franchise that has missed the playoffs 15 years in a row?"

Bills‘ Graham ready for challenge of playing safety – BN Blitz – The Buffalo News

"Corey Graham knew the deal as soon as he was drafted by the Chicago Bears.Defensive backs tackled in Chicago’s Cover Two system. If Graham didn’t like it, his professional career would be in peril.“I had to have my big-boy pants on every week,” he said. “That’s just what it was.”Even though he was less than 190 pounds coming out of college, Graham never shied away from the contact. His second year with the Bears, he made 91 tackles, which remains a career best after eight seasons in the NFL."

Just like you, Brandon’s a fan

"Russ Brandon was driving downtown for an informal news conference Monday when suddenly everything hit him. A year ago, he was running the Bills while helping Ralph Wilson’s survivors navigate the sale process. He wasn’t even sure of the Bills’ future in Western New York, not to mention his own.Twelve months later, the Bills were preparing to open training camp for the first time under owners Terry and Kim Pegula. It will mark the 16th season the Bills will hold camp at St. John Fisher College, Brandon’s alma mater. And now with Ted Black gone, Brandon is overseeing the Bills and Sabres."

3 reasons Charles Clay could be the Buffalo Bills‘ leading receiver in 2015 | syracuse.com

"Remember Charles Clay? The Buffalo Bills made him the fourth-highest paid tight end in the NFL this offseason, but his unassuming personality has caused him to fade into the background in an offseason highlighted by the additions of Rex Ryan, LeSean McCoy, Percy Harvin and Richie Incognito.Don’t let Clay’s quiet nature fool you, though. There may not be a single player more important to the Bills’ 2015 passing attack than Clay, who has the ability to mask the deficiencies the Bills have at quarterback."
