With plenty of questions still left unanswered around LeSean McCoy’s situation, the Buffalo Bills have apparently shown some interest in a free agent running back that is still on the market. ESPN’s Mike Rodak reported on Friday that the Bills are interested in working out former Los Angeles Charger Branden Oliver. Many may recall that Oliver starred at the University of Buffalo in college, which makes the potential signing a bit of a homecoming should it take place. Rodak did say the interest pre-dated the accusations against McCoy.

Today’s links also include updates on McCoy’s situation, Shaq Lawson, Zay Jones and much more.
