Darius Slay took the field for Detroit’s first practice of training camp with his contract concerns in the past. Slay signed a four-year extension with the Lions worth about $50 million, a deal that lasts through the 2020 season. The 25-year-old cornerback was heading into the fourth and final season of his rookie contract, and now Detroit doesn’t have to worry about losing him to free agency in 2017.

Victor Cruz is back a lot sooner than anyone expected. After missing all of last season and being limited to six games over the past two, the New York Giants receiver was a full-go as the team held its first practice at training camp Friday under new coach Ben McAdoo. With the Giants indoors because of overnight rain, the workout looked more like a slow-speed organized team activity.

Real Football 365 – United States

Will Rex Ryan be fired if the Bills miss the playoffs for a 17th straight year?

As any fan of the Buffalo Bills knows, it’s how long the playoff drought has been…16 years. The last time the Bills were in the playoffs was the 1999 season when the Bills were screwed in two ways. The first by their original owner, Ralph Wilson, when he made the call to then Head Coach, Wade Phillips, to start Bills QB Rob Johnson over regular season starter, Doug Flutie, all because Johnson…

Should the Bills “tank” like the Sabres if they can’t get a franchise QB?

When the Pegula’s bought the Sabres back in 2011, they thought the Sabres would be able to win the Stanley Cup within three years, but that didn’t come to fruition as they realized they had did not have the right roster and management to win the cup, so they gutted the team, and purposely tanked for two years in order to get two great players in the draft which would change their franchise…

Inconsistent Bills Need To Build Some Consistency

One thing consistent about the Bills this season is that they have been inconsistent since the start of the season. The Bills have not been able to win two consecutive games in a row so far. Whether it’s been penalties that have hurt the Bills chances, the amount of players that have been injured, or the inconsistent play from a lot of the players, the Bills so far have not met the lofty…

What the hell did we see this past Saturday night?

The third preseason game of the year is usually a good indicator of how good or bad a team will do in the regular season. For years, die-hard Bills fans had the mantra “It’s only preseason…it’s only preseason,” while others shook their heads in disgust saying “oh great, here we go again, another crappy season!” Over the past fifteen years, the Bills were usually eliminated from the playoffs…

Are the Bills in QB “hell” ?

Bills GM Doug Whaley said the Bills are in “QB Purgatory”. Unfortunately as the season pans out, there may be a possibility that they could be someplace else, someplace much worse.
Entering into the third preseason game Coach Rex Ryan called the QB race even, that surprisingly all three have played at a high level.
While some teams may consider this a nice problem to have, the flip side says…

Bills QB competition down to two?

It seems like one of the three Bills QB’s is falling out of the QB competition. Third year QB, EJ Manuel, for a second week in a row has not seen any reps with the starting unit. The last time Manuel had reps with the one’s was in the Bills Blue and White scrimmage. Since then, veteran QB Matt Cassel took a majority of the reps with the one’s as he was named the starter for the first preseason…

Will the real Bills QB please stand up?!

This offseason, the Bills brought in free agent QB Tyrod Taylor and traded with the Minnesota Vikings for Matt Cassel to compete with E.J. Manuel for the starting Bills QB position. So far, nobody has separated themselves from each other as each QB has struggled with consistency. In Saturday’s scrimmage, Manuel looked the best out of the three QB’s followed by Taylor and Cassel. In today’s…
