The Bills voided free agent WR Percy Harvin’s contract.

Harvin lasted five games before landing on I.R. His NFL status is up in the air after retirement rumors this past year. Harvin is only entering his age-28 season, but hasn’t been healthy since 2011.

CSN Philly reports Philadelphia authorities won't make a decision on issuing arrest warrants in the LeSean McCoy assault case until next week.

The longer McCoy goes without getting charged, the better. Beyond a potential one or two game suspension, McCoy's 2016 status doesn't appear to be under a cloud.

ABC Philadelphia reports investigators are recommending the District Attorney's office file criminal charges against LeSean McCoy for his alleged assault.

Arrest warrants for McCoy and three other alleged assailants are expected to be served Wednesday or Thursday. McCoy is being accused of assaulting two off-duty police officers at a Philadelphia nightclub last Saturday night/Sunday morning. This has a long way to go, but it's possible McCoy serves time on the Commissioner/Exempt List. He could eventually become a candidate for in-season suspension, depending on what the investigation shows.

Mario Williams insists he's still the same player.

Williams' play fell off a cliff in 2015, as he notched just five sacks in 909 snaps. He blames Rex Ryan's scheme. Williams acknowledges he could be released, but says he'll be better than ever in 2016. "At the end of the day, if I'm not (in Buffalo), I'll show you that I'm better than what I've been before," Williams said. "Like, that's just a chip on my shoulder regardless of whether I am there or not, because given the opportunity I’ll get back to what I was." Williams turned 31 last month. Before 2015, he had notched at least 10.5 sacks in each of his three seasons in Buffalo. Not a scheme or personality fit with Ryan, Williams is guaranteed to be cut loose. The inevitable move will create $12.9 million in cap space.

$2.5 million of LeSean McCoy's $4.8 million salary for 2016 is guaranteed.

The rest of it becomes guaranteed when the new league year begins on March 9. In other words, the Bills would have little financial incentive to move on from McCoy if he ends up getting charged in his assault case. Cutting McCoy now would create a whopping $10.5 million in dead money, and suck up an additional $5.325 million in cap space. Unless there are new, more explosive details yet to be released, we'd fully expect McCoy to keep his roster spot.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports LeSean McCoy is expected to be served with a self-surrender arrest warrant by the middle of the week.

ESPN's Mark Schwarz reports a warrant is "imminent." McCoy and three other men including ex-Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley are alleged to have assaulted at least two off-duty police officers over a bottle of champagne. Under the new personal conduct policy, players can be placed on the commissioner exempt list if formally charged with a violent crime. If placed on the exempt list, McCoy would remain on paid leave until the criminal proceedings are completed.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports police are seeking arrest warrants in the LeSean McCoy nightclub case.

McCoy, as well as ex-Charger Curtis Brinkley and two other men, are alleged to have severely beaten three off-duty police officers, hospitalizing two of them. The brawl apparently erupted after McCoy's group attempted to co-opt a bottle of champagne. The Bills are "aware" of the incident.

Philadelphia Police confirmed two off-duty officers were hospitalized after an altercation inside a nightclub early Sunday morning.

The officers were allegedly assaulted by four assailants after an argument over a bottle of champagne at approximately 2:45 a.m. LeSean McCoy is believed to be one of the assailants. One of the officers suffered a laceration to his right eye, a broken nose, broken ribs and a sprained thumb. The other officer needed stitches over his left eye and is receiving treatment for a possible skull fracture. The investigation is ongoing.

CSN Philadelphia reports LeSean McCoy was allegedly involved in the assault of three off-duty Philadelphia police officers early Sunday morning.

McCoy, former NFL RB Curtis Brinkley, former Pitt WR T.J. Porter and Christopher Henderson reportedly got into a physical altercation over a bottle of champagne with three off-duty officers around 2:45 a.m. at Philly's Recess Lounge. ABC 6 reports two officers were hospitalized as a result of the altercation, and Fox 29's Dave Schratwieser reports one officer suffered a fractured skull. None of the alleged assailants were arrested, but they are reportedly the focus of the investigation. The Bills released a statement saying the organization was "aware" of the reports and is "in the process of gathering more information."

WGR 550's Sal Capaccio expects the Bills and impending free agent LG Richie Incognito to agree to a two-year contract.

Both the Bills and Incognito have expressed a desire to continue their relationship after Incognito made the Pro Bowl and was Pro Football Focus' No. 2 guard. Incognito turns 33 in July. Capaccio guesses he'll command around $6 million per year on a new contract, which falls in line with what fellow veteran Chiefs LG Ben Grubbs received in a revised contract last year.
Feb 5 - 12:49 PM

Bills signed CB Javier Arenas to a reserve/future contract.

Arenas, 28, was the 50th overall pick in 2010 by the Chiefs. He appeared in 63-of-64 games with the Chiefs and Cardinals from 2010-2013 before landing with the Falcons for six games in 2014. This past August, Arenas spent 19 days in Jets camp before getting cut and spending the season on the street.
Feb 3 - 1:50 PM

ESPN’s Mike Rodak doesn’t expect the Bills to offer free agent WLB Nigel Bradham more than $5 million annually.

A breakout player under Jim Schwartz in 2014, Bradham took a step back in Rex Ryan’s scheme this year. He’s behind LT Cordy Glenn and LG Richie Incognito on Buffalo’s offseason priorities. Currently $3.5 million over the cap, the Bills should look to the draft to replace Bradham.

Bills DB Corey Graham will remain a safety for 2016.

Graham started all 16 games in 2015, playing the majority of his 1,006 snaps at strong safety, though he also spent a decent amount of time in center field. Aaron Williams is expected to return from his neck injury and start opposite Graham.
Jan 28 - 2:01 PM

According to BuffaloBills.com, it's "unclear" if RT Seantrel Henderson (illness) can "effectively continue as Buffalo’s starter moving forward."

Henderson missed the final five games of the season due to Crohn's disease. GM Doug Whaley says the Bills are "crossing our fingers and hoping (Henderson) can come back to full strength." If not, Whaley talked up Cyrus Kouandjio and restricted free agent Jordan Mills as potential replacements. Henderson previously started 26-of-27 games since being the No. 237 overall pick of the 2014 draft.

Tyrod Taylor says he wants to be the "long-term guy" in Buffalo.

It would be newsworthy if Taylor said anything else, of course, but he's made it clear he wants to remain in Buffalo for the long haul. "I love playing for the organization, I love playing for the coaches, I love being around the guys," Taylor said. "Like I said, I want to be the long-term guy for them. Ultimately that's up to them. I know I'm under contract for another year, but right now I'm out here just taking it all in." Although more is available through incentives, Taylor is due a ridiculously cheap $1 million in 2016. Taylor will be in line for a fortune next offseason if his 2016 goes anything like his 2015. It's also possible the Bills try to hammer out an extension before Week 1.
