More from Buffalo Bills News

We are another day closer and we still are being kept in the dark about the Buffalo Bills quarterback situation until just before week 1.  We may be able to figure out who Rex and the coaching staff is thinking based on who plays this weekend in their 3rd preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

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

4 Bubble Players Buffalo Should Watch Closely

"NFL rosters need to be cut down to 53 players on September 5. When the Buffalo Bills make their final cuts, a few players will be on the right side of the roster bubble. Unfortunately, those players won’t necessarily be safe once other teams make cuts. Buffalo will be looking for any players that they feel could be upgrades. After researching 53-man roster projections and reviewing Pro Football Focus, here are four players who have impressed in the preseason, but are on the bubble for their respective teams."

Marcell Dareus vs. the Buffalo Bills: Contract Negotiations Drag On

"Marcell Dareus has just come off a monstrous 10-sack All-Pro season and is ready to be compensated for it. The two-time Pro Bowl player (2013, 2014) has been locking horns with the Buffalo Bills in a storyline that could come right out of the HBO show Ballers. The long off-season negotiations have spilled over into exhibition season with the latest chapter reportedly being the rejection of a $90 million six-year deal to add to the one year left on his current contract."

Rex on naming starting QB the Bills “want to get it right”

"The Bills have a plan as to when they’ll tab their Week 1 starter.  It will come after the preseason game against Pittsburgh.But who’s starting Saturday’s game?We don’t know the answer to that, yet.However, there is a good chance that Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel all see action with the first team offense against the Steelers."
