A source with "knowledge of the dynamics of team ownership" believes Donald Trump could gain league approval if he's serious about buying the Bills.

"I don’t see why not," the source said. "He’s the only one saying it will stay in Buffalo. ... I don’t think there are nine people to stop him." Blocking a sale requires nine "no" votes from the league's other 31 owners. At this point, Trump's candidacy for the Bills is likely more bark than bite for a noted publicity hound, but there's nothing stopping it from getting serious.

Donald Trump insists his interest in buying the Bills is legitimate.

Trump is a noted headline seeker, but is adamant he's not only interested in the Bills, but keeping them in Buffalo. "I'm going to give it a heavy shot," Trump told the Buffalo News. "I would love to do it, and if I can do it I'm keeping it in Buffalo." Trump is the first prospective owner to publicly voice his interest, but a Toronto-based group fronted by rocker Jon Bon Jovi is also believed to be in the mix. Other suitors will emerge in the coming days and months.

Sources tell CSN Philly that the Eagles tried to trade for C.J. Spiller before dealing for Darren Sproles.

The Bills said they weren't interested in moving Spiller, so the Eagles never even made an offer. Chip Kelly then settled for Sproles, a player four years older and far inferior in the run game. It's another sign that the Eagles knew they'd be moving on from DeSean Jackson well before March 28, and also an indication that the Bills remain committed to Spiller despite last year's injury-marred disaster. Now that Buffalo has retained the explosive 26-year-old, hopefully Doug Marrone will utilize Spiller correctly with more touches in space, less banging between the tackles, and better injury management.

The Toronto Sun reports rocker Jon Bon Jovi is part of a Toronto-based ownership group that plans to bid on the Bills.

"Jon remains passionate in his pursuit of an NFL franchise," were the words of Bon Jovi's publicist. According to the Sun, Bon Jovi's group would relocate the Bills to Toronto. An '80s hair metaler from New Jersey being the front for a group that moved the Bills from Buffalo would be a sad, sordid tale, but the team is locked in to Ralph Wilson Stadium through 2020. The Bills are going to be sold within the next year, but it's not time for fans to panic.

The Bills are considering keeping two kickers for the 2014 season.

The Bills recently signed Dan Carpenter to a four-year, $9.9 million extension, but used the No. 177 pick of last year's draft on Dustin Hopkins, who missed his entire rookie year with a groin injury. The idea would be to have Carpenter handle field goals and Hopkins man kickoffs. When it comes time to cut the roster down to 53 players, we highly doubt the Bills will have the stones to keep two kickers. It wouldn't be smart.

WGR 550 Buffalo believes T.J. Graham is "on thin ice" with the Bills, as he enters his third season.

Graham was the 69th overall pick in the 2012 draft and has just 54 grabs for 683 yards and three touchdowns through 31 games. As a pure deep threat, he didn't have much of a chance with popgun-armed Ryan Fitzpatrick as a rookie before tumbling down the depth chart in 2013. Graham needs a strong summer.

Bills signed DE Jarius Wynn, formerly of the Cowboys.

Wynn, 28 in August, made 11 tackles and two sacks across 369 defensive snaps for the Cowboys and Chargers last season. He has 8.5 career sacks through six seasons. Wynn will compete for a spot on the 53-man roster.

At his introductory press conference, new Bills WR Mike Williams admitted he needs to "grow up a little more."

Williams' departure from Tampa Bay was preceded by -- and perhaps caused by -- two off-field incidents in a span of four months. Despite his relative success in the NFL, Williams does not possess the super talent necessary for teams to put up with the off-field headaches. If he can stay on the straight and narrow, Williams will provide the Bills a much needed red-zone threat.

Mike Williams (hamstring, thigh) expects to be 100 percent for the Bills' offseason program.

"I’m going to be ready for all the offseason workouts and things like that," Williams assured. "So I’ll be 100 percent straight for that." Williams missed the second half of 2013 with a torn hamstring, and was stabbed in the thigh last month.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak expects the team to keep Stevie Johnson for 2014.

Specifically, Rodak considers Johnson a "long shot" to move on this offseason. Johnson may be entering his final season with Buffalo, but he's due back as the club's primary slot receiver, with Mike Williams likely playing "X" and Robert Woods "Z" in three-wide packages. From a fantasy perspective, Johnson would need E.J. Manuel to take a huge leap forward for a bounce-back season.

Bills.com writer Chris Brown "really liked" what he saw from second-year FS Duke Williams in both the practice setting and preseason last year.

Williams appeared in just six games as a rookie, but is a hard-hitting safety with coverage skills that could develop into a starter. The Bills are currently expected to let Williams, Corey Graham, and Jonathan Meeks compete for their free safety job. Buffalo could also be a fit for a player like Florida State CB/S Lamarcus Joyner in the second round, who has a profile similar to Jairus Byrd.

The Bills' website considers SLB Manny Lawson a candidate to move to defensive end this season.

Lawson graded out as the top cover linebacker in the league last year by Pro Football Focus, so it's a questionable fit even with the Bills moving to a 4-3. Barring an upgrade in the draft, Lawson should remain at strong-side linebacker. Jerry Hughes is expected to see the majority of snaps opposite Mario Williams.
Apr 5 - 3:02 PM

The Bills are "all in" on E.J. Manuel as their franchise quarterback.

It confirms Buffalo won't be targeting any of the top three quarterbacks with the No. 9 overall pick. Manuel is coming off an injury-filled rookie year and was inconsistent when healthy, but the Bills want to see what he can do over a full season before making a decision on his future. Three months removed from his January knee scope, Manuel is ready for the start of OTAs. Manuel shouldn't face any competition for his starting job in 2014.
Apr 5 - 2:35 PM

The Bills are expected to prioritize a long-term deal for DE/OLB Jerry Hughes.

Hughes resurrected his career in Buffalo last year, recording 10 sacks and 46 tackles as an edge player opposite Mario Williams. The Bills are moving to a more traditional 4-3 scheme under DC Jim Schwartz, which should allow Hughes to focus strictly on pass rushing as a defensive end. Hughes, 25, is set to make just $1.1 million in the final year of his rookie contract.
Apr 4 - 8:05 PM

ESPN.com's Mike Rodak considers Stevie Johnson's roster spot in jeopardy.

Coming off an injury-riddled 2013, Johnson is set to count $8.5 million against the cap. He's a candidate to be released following Buffalo's trade for Mike Williams, with second-year receivers Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin both capable of taking on expanded roles. Because releasing Johnson carries $8.475 million in dead money, he could be asked to restructure. If the Bills ultimately decide to move on from Johnson, they would free up just $25,000 in cap space.
