Buffalo Bills Circling the Wagons: IK Enemlpali
Rex Ryan did say that he wanted his Buffalo Bills to be bullies. He brought in Richie Incognito to start and yesterday brings in IK Enemkpali to add to the bullish nature of the Buffalo Bills. IK punched Geno Smith, a couple of days ago and was released the same day by the Jets organization. He was added to the Bills the next day.
Here are your daily links for the Buffalo Bills from around the web.
"Linebacker IK Enemkpali was released immediately when he punched Jets quarterback Geno Smith on Tuesday and broke Smith’s jaw in two places.Enemkpali was not unemployed for long.NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reports the Buffalo Bills have claimed Enemkpali off waivers. Enemkpali is headed to Buffalo today, per Rapoport."
"While this isn’t necessarily a surprise, it may be an indication of Ryan’s thinking going forward, which will raise cheers from the Buffalo supporters who never considered Manuel their starting quarterback of the future. The key move was acquiring LeSean McCoy in a trade with Philadelphia to lead what Ryan vows to be a “ground-and-pound” running attack. “I think I’m the only (coaching candidate) who brought it up, about fielding a team that would represent this community, and recognizing the loyalty of the fan base”."
"Jim Kelly is heading back under the knife this week, getting surgery seven months after a doctor declared the Buffalo Bills legend cancer-free.Jim’s wife, Jill Kelly, posted an update on her Facebook page on Wednesday afternoon saying that Jim was about to go into surgery.She later shared more details on Instagram, saying Jim had a permanent eye duct inserted after his was damaged from chemotherapy and radiation."
"The Buffalo Bills made a bold trade when they shipped promising linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Philadelphia Eagles for LeSean McCoy. Both players filled a need for each respective team, and both are expected to thrive for their new teams.For McCoy, head coach Rex Ryan has high hopes for his star running backs. On Wednesday, he made a strong prediction for Shady McCoy’s numbers in 2015, saying 1,000 yards on the ground and through the air is a not out of the question.“LeSean McCoy is a special back, a very talented guy,” Ryan said. “His merits stand up for themselves, he’s led the league in rushing, but he’s a multi-dimensional guy. He can dominate a game in the passing game and the running game, so that’s what we’re going to use him for, that Marshall Faulk — does he have 1,000 receiving and 1,000 rushing? That’s a real possibility.”"
"Bills head coach Rex Ryan says it’s still early in the process for the coaching staff when it comes to deciding on a starting quarterback. On Tuesday however, he hinted that the three-man quarterback competition to be Buffalo’s starting signal caller could be close to finalized by the time they reach the team’s third preseason game.“I think we’re going to look at it over at least a two game stretch,” said Ryan of the quarterback competition. “That’s where there will be more balance (with playing time). Each guy will get a shot. Seattle had a similar thing with (Tarvaris) Jackson, (Matt) Flynn and then the other quarterback (Russell Wilson). Let’s just hope it works out the same way.”"
