The Bills are expected to approach OLB Mario Williams about restructuring his contract.

Williams has three years and over $55 million left on his deal. Buffalo wants to lower his cap number to free up money for Marcell Dareus' extension. The Bills have the third-lowest cap space for 2016, behind only Miami and New Orleans.

Bills signed OT Wayne Hunter to a one-year, $870,000 contract.

Coach Rex Ryan's pal is back in the NFL after sitting out the past two seasons. Turning 34 tomorrow, Hunter last played for the Rams in 2012, but spent the four seasons prior with Ryan's Jets. The Bills will be in trouble if Hunter makes the squad and is forced to be on the field. He's an extreme roster long shot.

The Buffalo News believes it's "really possible" the Bills name Tyrod Taylor their starting quarterback.

Taylor, Matt Cassel and E.J. Manuel split reps evenly throughout the offseason program, with Cassel performing the poorest. It's not that far-fetched to suggest Taylor could beat out Manuel and his 58.6 career completion percentage. Rex Ryan appears most enthusiastic about Taylor, the quarterback he "hand picked." Taylor has never started an NFL game, spending the last four years as Joe Flacco's backup.

Cordy Glenn and Seantrel Henderson alternated between right and left tackle during the Bills' offseason program.

Glenn only played left tackle at minicamp but that was because Henderson was demoted to the third team after missing the first day of practice. The Bills could be grooming Henderson to play left tackle when Glenn's contract expires after this season. With Nigel Bradham, Marcell Dareus and Stephon Gilmore also headed for free agency, re-signing Glenn won't be Buffalo's top priority.

The Buffalo News expects the Bills to extend contract-year DT Marcell Dareus before the start of the season.

The Bills were expected to have a deal in place with Dareus by training camp. Extending Dareus before Week 1 is now considered the more realistic deadline. Dareus is seeking top-three defensive tackle money.

Bills CB Leodis McKelvin (ankle) is expected to start opposite Stephon Gilmore.

Second-round pick Ronald Darby could push McKelvin, but will probably settle into a sub-package role. A broken ankle limited McKelvin to 10 games last season, but the seven-year veteran thrived two years ago in a defense very similar to the one new coach Rex Ryan will install. McKelvin is a candidate for a bounce-back season.

Bills OT Seantrel Henderson failed to attend the opening day of mandatory minicamp.

Henderson reported late because of a missed flight. Already demoted to the second team, Henderson now needs to work his way out of Rex Ryan’s doghouse. Cyrus Kouandjio remains firmly ahead of Henderson.

ESPN’s Mike Rodak expects sixth-round TE Nick O’Leary to make the final roster.

O’Leary mixed in first-team OTA reps with Chris Gragg and MarQueis Gray. With Buffalo expected to keep four tight ends under new OC Greg Roman, O'Leary is all but locked into a roster spot. O’Leary has run blocking and athletic limitations, but could back up Charles Clay with a strong camp.

Bills S Duke Williams has bulked up to 210 pounds.

Williams was listed at 200 pounds last year. The Bills are asking him to play closer to the line of scrimmage in Rex Ryan’s scheme. With Corey Graham moving to safety, Williams should remain in a part-time role.

Percy Harvin aims to become a true, game-changing outside receiver with the Bills.

"Aside from the first two years I got in the league I’ve been just a gadget guy," Harvin said. "I’ve been dying to just sit down with that one coach who will tell me what I’m doing wrong and what I need to do. Every day [WRs] coach Sanjay [Lal] is coming to me with different techniques I can use. I was dying to get with that coach who would sit with me and want to bring the best out of me. I think this year a lot of people are going to see the end result of it." Unless the Bills found a quarterback that we don't know about, it's hard to see Harvin breaking out as the No. 2 option in what should be a run-heavy, ball-control offense.

Bills WR Marquise Goodwin finished fourth in the long jump at the U.S. championships Thursday night.

Goodwin's jump was 27-feet, 5 1/2 inches. He needed a top-three finish to secure a spot at the World championships. Goodwin can now focus on football and making the Bills' roster where he's considered to be on the bubble, though coach Rex Ryan talked up the third-year receiver's speed during spring practices.

The Bills intend to use Charles Clay on all three downs.

The Bills showed how high they were on Clay by making him the NFL's highest-paid tight end over the next three years. He's going to be an every-down player and his ADP is currently undrafted. There's not a ton of upside given the Bills' offensive philosophy and quarterback situation, but 60 catches is within reach.

Fred Jackson admitted he's competing for a roster spot.

"We’ll see what happens with me getting cut or not," he said. "I’ll go out and do whatever I can to make sure that doesn’t happen." While this could be chalked up to preaching competition rah-rah, there have been concerns about Jackson's job security in Buffalo at 34 years old with a new coaching staff. LeSean McCoy is the new lead dog, and rookie Karlos Williams has reportedly impressed in spring workouts. Anthony Dixon plays special teams and Jackson doesn't.

Bills WR Marquise Goodwin is participating in this weekend's U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Goodwin qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in the long jump, where he placed 10th. If he finishes in the top three at this weekend's meet and goes over 8.10 meters, he'll qualify for the World Championships in Beijing. That meet will be held Aug. 22-30, just as Bills training camp is winding down. Goodwin enters camp on the roster bubble.

Per the Buffalo News' Vic Carucci, Matt Cassel was "easily the worst-looking quarterback" at Bills offseason practices.

"Cassel doesn’t move well, he doesn’t always throw the prettiest ball, and has easily had the worst-looking practice performances of all of the quarterbacks," wrote Carucci, who isn't the first Bills writer to dog on the 11-year veteran this spring. With spring practices in the books, it sounded like E.J. Manuel was the best of the bad among Bills quarterbacks. Still, odds are Cassel will get the nod to start come Week 1 unless he completely faceplants in the preseason.
