    5 bold predictions for the Buffalo Bills 2017 season

    Since firing head coach Rex Ryan near the close of the 2016 season, the theme throughout One Bills Drive has been “out with the old, in with the new”.

    On April 28, Vance McDonald’s mom, Beverly, approached her son with some shocking news: According to a report, the 49ers were shopping McDonald in trade talks during the NFL draft. On Tuesday, the tight end who signed a five-year contract extension in December was asked about his initial reaction to the bombshell. Did his heart sink? “No,” McDonald said, “I still had my best-man speech to do.” Yes, McDonald got the news at his brother’s wedding in Austin, Texas. And a few hours after he delivered the speech, the best man heard a speech, of sorts, from new head coach Kyle Shanahan to explain why he was candidate to be an odd man out. Shanahan has told reporters the 49ers were initially approached
