Bush Deal Coming? Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports that a deal with Reggie Bush could be coming soon. Reports last week said the Bills were interested in signing the veteran who is coming off an ACL injury. The team is looking to add depth at running back with the upcoming four game suspension to Karlos Williams and the DWI arrest of Jonathan Williams. Bush would become the favorite to win the punt returning job as well. NFL sources told teh Buffalo News that the two sides were working out the deal points. The source told the paper that he thinks the talks will result in a deal. The 10 year vet has played for the Saints, Dolphins, Lions, and 49ers.
Bills Add Kromer's Son: The Bills have hired Zak Kromer as an entry level coaching assistant. He is the son of OL coach Aaron Kromer.

Both men were charged with misdemeanor battery for the incident. Zak Kromer was a student assistant the last four years with University of Oklahoma football team.
Gilmore To Show Up At Camp: The contract situation of Stephon Gilmore has been a story all offseason and continues as we get set for training camp. Gilmore told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he will indeed show up for training camp. He had skipped all offseason workouts except the mandatory minicamp. It isn't a suprise that he is going to show up at camp since he would face heavy fines if he didn't. He said last week that he his done negotiating until after the season. He will play this season under the club option of $11.082 Million. Gimore left it up in the air that he would report to camp on time when he was very coy about his plans while talking to the media during last month's minicamp. Gilmore told Anderson that "I'm planning to go out to training camp. I know what I am. It'll happen eventually."

Individual Game Ticket Sales: The Bills have started selling individual game tickets but the supply for many games are extremely limited. The team has tier pricing with the platinum game being the most expensive and that is the home opener against the Jets on Thursday night Sept. 15th. There are four gold games against Arizona, San Francisco, New England and Pittsburgh. The Jacksonville game is a silver level game and the final two home games against Cleveland and Miami are bronze games. The two preseason games are the bottom tier.
Night Practice Ticket Distribution: The Bills announced that night practice tickets will be distributed tomorrow starting at 9am. Tickets for the Aug. 2nd night practice will be distributed at three area 7-Eleven shops, two in Rochester and one in Amherst. Four area Tops Friendly Markets will distribute tickets to the Saturday Aug. 6th night practice. The August 11th practice will have tickets distributed at three Sunoco locations.

Bush To Buffalo? Jason LaCanfora and Ian Rapoport are both reporting that the Bills and Reggie Bush have mutual interest in each other. Bush missed most of last year with a torn ACL but says he's healthy now. The Bills may be looking at running back depth with the four game suspension of Karlos Williams and the DWI arrest of Jonathan Williams.
Karlos Williams Suspended: It hasn't been a good couple of days for Bills running backs named Williams. A day after Jonathan Williams was arrested for DWI, Karlos Williams has been suspended for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. It hasn't been a good offseason for Karlos who showed up at offseason workouts grossly out of shape and now will have four more weeks to get into shape. He will be eligilbe to participate in preseason games and training camp. With possible disciplinary action for Jonathan the Bills depth at running back is getting thin quickly. The team released a stern statement that said, "As an organization, we are disappointed that Karlos has put himself in this situation. Poor decisions such as this affect not only the individual, but the entire Bills organization. We will continue to work with Karlos through the various player programs we provide to assist him in making better decisions moving forward.”
Brady Drops Fight: The long national nightmare known as deflategate is now over as Tom Brady announced today on his facebook page that he is dropping his fight and will serve his four game suspension. That means it is now official that the Bills will face the Patriots on October 2nd without Tom Brady at quarterback.
McCoy Cleared By League:LeSean McCoy was cleared for his involvement in a bar brawl by Philadelphia authorities earlier and now the league has finished its investigation. The league said they will not be any suspension forthcoming for McCoy.
Brady Suspension Still On: The appeals court has decided not to hear Tom Brady's case meaning his four game suspension at this point will still take place at the beginning of the season. That means he will miss the first meeting with the Bills in Foxboro week 4. His only remaining option is to ask the Supreme Court to hear it but that seems to be a longshot. Marcell Dareus for one is disappointed. He told NFL Network that he would rather face the Patriots with Brady at Quarterback.
