(Buffalo News) Cuomo expresses doubts about need for new Bills stadium
Andrew Cuomo doesn't really say anything new here, noting that a new stadium will be contingent on what the new owner and the league desire, and posturing for the possibility of not having to build one. Stick through it, though, for his reaction to the Trump nonsense.

(Buffalo News) Renderings: Proposal for old Seneca Mall site
Reminder: this is the project being put together by Scott Congel, the reported business partner in the Tom Golisano ownership bid. Right now, this project does not include plans for a new Bills stadium, but if Golisano's bid comes close, this is the area where a new stadium could happen.

( Camp Countdown: How practices with the Steelers will help
Yeah, this is all well and good; let's hope none of it is trumped by an injury. Anyone remember the Tom Brady knee scare from a year ago when New England was practicing with Tampa Bay?

( Buffalo Bills Bubble Watch: Dustin Hopkins
Mike Rodak gives kicker Dustin Hopkins a 40 percent chance of making the Bills' final roster as a kickoff specialist. Is that a good ballpark for his odds?

(ESPN) Fantasy Now: Trent Richardson vs. C.J. Spiller
Look, I'm a red-blooded American man. I therefore love fantasy football. But holy smokes, is fantasy football coverage - all of it - horrendous.

'90s week

( Sep. 1, 1996: Overtime Win vs. Giants
Please, everyone, avoid the jokes about last-second kicks against the Giants. This one went in Buffalo's favor in 1996.

( Dec. 8, 1991: Overtime Win vs. Raiders
Please, everyone, avoid the jokes about Scott Norwood attempting a last-second, game-winning kick for the Bills. This one went in favor of Buffalo, giving them an OT win after trailing by 13 in the fourth quarter.

Reed received advice from Bruce Smith, John Randle, and Eric Dickerson. This is an excellent read, despite the far-too-lengthy headline. (Eight to 10 words, people!)
