Peterson did attend the optional workouts last summer while Zimmer was orienting himself in his first months on the job, but has skipped them in the past.

Roger Goodell will hear Tom Brady’s appeal of his four-game suspension for his role in the deflated footballs scandal. The union asked Goodell to remove himself from that role because it said he lacked impartiality and that Goodell would be called as a witness. NFL lawyers, however, have recommended to Goodell that he should not recuse himself.

Cornerback Orlando Scandrick has the raise he sought by skipping the first two weeks of voluntary offseason workouts with the Dallas Cowboys. It’s the second time in three years the Cowboys have reworked contract terms for Scandrick, who showed up last week to talk to team executives and has been working out with the team this week. Dallas’ best cornerback last year, Scandrick was to make just $1.5 million this season, which was set to be fourth among the team’s cornerbacks once first-round pick Byron Jones of Connecticut signed.

Former NFL player and convicted killer Aaron Hernandez is running out of money after hiring a platoon of lawyers for all his criminal cases, his attorney said. Attorney John Fitzpatrick told a judge in New Bedford on Thursday that Hernandez was paid for only one year of his now-terminated $40 million contract with the New England Patriots. In addition to paying lawyers, Fitzpatrick said, Hernandez is supporting his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, and the couple’s 2-year-old daughter.

Is the “Flutie Curse” over with?

In January 2000, then Buffalo Bills owner, Ralph Wilson, made the call to then Bills HC Wade Phillips to have Rob Johnson become the starting QB for the Bills in the playoffs after he saw Johnson play well in a meaningless game 16 for the Bills. Former starting Bills QB, Doug Flutie was told by Phillips that he was only being benched for game 16 so he was rested for the playoffs, only to have the…

New Bills owners, new Buffalo Bills

The 2015 NFL offseason has been a different one for the Buffalo Bills. This is the first full offseason for the Bills without their founder and original owner, Ralph Wilson who passed away in March 2014, and first offseason for new Bills owners Kim and Terry Pegula. The Pegula’s first big move in the offseason was hiring a big name coach, Rex Ryan. The last time the Bills hired a big name coach…

2014, the season of “What if’s” for the Buffalo Bills

The 2014 season was a season of should’ve, could’ve and what if’s for the Buffalo Bills.

What if Kyle Orton was a Bill throughout training camp and preseason, would he have been more effective?
The Bills should’ve beaten the Chiefs and Texans
If the Bills had a better QB, they could’ve been in the playoffs

15 years and counting…

With yesterday’s loss to the Oakland Raiders, it officially put the final nail in the coffin of the 2014 season for the Buffalo Bills. In years past, the Bills were eliminated from playoff contention in November, so they made it to Week 15 this year without being eliminated. Sadly, this is the 15th year in a row that the Bills are not playing in the playoffs. It seems like such an eternity ago…

It’s deja vu again for the Bills offense

Another week, another ugly performance by the Bills offense yesterday as they lost to the Houston Texans 23-17. It seemed as if nothing could go right for the Bills offense as it sputtered in so many areas. Texans DT JJ Watt terrorized the entire offense line yesterday as EJ Manuel could not get comfortable in the pocket. And even when Manuel did have time, he was wildly inaccurate. The Bills…

Bills take two steps forward, then one step backwards

The Bills started the 2014 season off hot with winning their first two games, then fizzled in game three versus the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers rebounded from a week 1 loss to the Cardinals to beat the defending Superbowl Champion Seattle Seahawks.

The Bills defense held the Chargers to 20 points, who had previously scored 30 points on one of the best defenses in the league a week prior….
