    Brandon Beane Youth Cody Ford Jersey , the general manager of the Buffalo Bills, has been plenty willing to make trades during his tenure as the team’s top executive. Not only that, but he has also been unafraid to move on from players acquired via trade when it doesn’t work.Beane has traded players for draft picks, draft picks for players, and draft picks for draft picks at various times throughout his stint as general manager. In the last calendar year alone, Beane consummated seven different trades. Here they are.March 14—Traded quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns for pick No. 65 in the 2018 NFL Draft; also traded left tackle Cordy Glenn, pick No. 21, and pick No. 158 to the Cincinnati Bengals for picks No. 12 and No. 187Buffalo made two huge moves on the same day in March, trading away the team’s starting quarterback and starting left tackle for draft capital. The Bills made only one selection with the picks they acquired, staying at No. 187 to select Clemson wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III in the sixth round of the draft. The other picks were used in other trades. April 26—Traded picks No. 12, 53, and 56 in the 2018 NFL Draft to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for picks No. 7 and No. 255; also traded picks No. 22 and 65 to the Baltimore Ravens for picks No. 16 and 154Beane executed two huge trades in the first round of the draft last year, moving up to select quarterback Josh Allen seventh overall after the trade with Tampa Bay, and then moving up a short time later to grab linebacker Tremaine Edmunds 16th overall. With the fifth-round choice acquired from Baltimore, the Bills selected safety Siran Neal. With the seventh-round choice acquired from Tampa Bay, they drafted wide receiver Austin Proehl. August 5—Traded an undisclosed future draft pick to the Cleveland Browns for wide receiver Corey Coleman (2020 seventh-round choice, per ESPN) The Bills recognized early on that they had issues at receiver, and they tried to fix the problem before the season began. Coleman was a former first-round draft pick who was only 24 years old when Beane made the trade. Although it didn’t work out in the end— the Bills released Coleman less than a month after acquiring him—it’s hard to fault Beane for taking a flier on a physically talented player. September 1—Traded quarterback A.J. McCarron to the Oakland Raiders for a 2019 fifth-round pick Once McCarron, who had signed a $10 million dollar deal in free agency, didn’t win the starting gig, Beane promptly dealt him for draft capital. This move backfired in the sense that the starting quarterback, Nathan Peterman, was an epic failure in the season opener, prompting the team to quickly turn to the raw rookie Allen as the starter. Without a veteran quarterback to mentor him, Allen struggled mightily in the first half of the season. Obviously, we’ll never know if McCarron would have been a good mentor—or even a willing one—for a young quarterback, but in this move Beane showed his willingness to move on from transactions that he deems unsuccessful.September 25—Traded offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse to the Carolina Panthers for a future, conditional draft pick (2021 seventh-round choice, per ESPN)The Bills dealt a second player that they had signed in the 2018 off-season prior to the end of September when they sent Newhouse to Carolina. Newhouse was brought in to serve as veteran tackle depth, but the team was able to swing him for draft capital while adding another versatile veteran option in Jeremiah Sirles via free agency on the same date. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (15-4)OPEN CAMP: July 26, Foxborough, MassachusettsLAST YEAR: New England lost twice in its first four games but recovered to win 11 of its final 12 behind MVP season of quarterback Tom Brady. He impressed at age 40 Womens Cody Ford Jersey , throwing for 4,577 yards, 32 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He did so despite reported issues between himself, coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft following midseason trade of backup Jimmy Garoppolo to 49ers. Defensive inconsistency was ongoing issue and it caught up with Patriots in Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia. It included surprise benching of cornerback Malcolm Butler, one of several players to sign with new teams during free agency.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: RB Jeremy Hill, RB Sony Michel, QB Danny Etling, DE Adrian Clayborn, WR Jordan Matthews, OT Trent Brown, OL Isaiah Wynn, CB Jason McCourty, DT Danny Shelton,IMPORTANT LOSSES: Defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, WR Danny Amendola, WR Brandin Cooks, CB Malcolm Butler, CB Johnson Bademosi, RB Dion Lewis, OT Nate Solder, OT Cam Fleming.CAMP NEEDS: Wide receiver will be hot topic. After sitting out 2017 with torn right ACL, Julian Edelman is suspended for first four games of regular season for violating NFL policy on performance enhancers. Combined with losses of Amendola and Cooks in trades to Dolphins and Rams, respectively, it leaves Chris Hogan (34 catches, 439 yards, five TDs) as top returning wide receiver. Something also must be done to solidify defense that needs more edge rushing and someone to start alongside Stephon Gilmore at cornerback.EXPECTATIONS: Even with offseason roster changes, Patriots enter camp as team to beat in AFC East. All-Pro TE Rob Gronkowski considered retirement in offseason; he and Brady skipped voluntary offseason workouts. But both returned for mandatory minicamps and say they are focused on helping New England reach what would be its fourth Super Bowl in five seasons. One of biggest question marks will be how linebackers coach Brian Flores does in new role as defensive play caller.—BUFFALO BILLS (9-8)OPEN CAMP: July 26, St. John Fisher College, Pittsford, New YorkLAST YEAR: Under first-year coach (Sean McDermott) and GM (Brandon Beane), Buffalo overcame major roster overhaul and midseason quarterback shuffle to win four of last six games and clinch playoff berth to end 17-year postseason drought. Bills snapped longest active streak of missing playoffs in North America’s four major professional sports. At 29, LeSean McCoy was offensive workhorse with 1 Authentic Cody Ford Jersey ,138 yards rushing and 448 yards receiving and eight touchdowns. Revamped secondary, including first-round pick Tre’Davious White, keyed patchwork defense by finishing tied for sixth in NFL with 18 interceptions.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: Rookie QB Josh Allen, QB A.J. McCarron, rookie LB Tremaine Edmunds, DT Star Lotulelei, DE Trent Murphy, CB Vontae Davis, WR Jeremy Kerley, RB Chris Ivory, OLs Russell Bodine and Marshall Newhouse, and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.IMPORTANT LOSSES: QB Tyrod Taylor, LT Cordy Glenn, C Eric Wood, RG Richie Incognito, WR Jordan Matthews, CB E.J. Gaines, LB Preston Brown and FB Mike Tolbert.CAMP NEEDS: Many center on how quickly new-look offense finds chemistry with new starting quarterback. Two big holes to fill on line and offense lacks established depth at receiver behind Kelvin Benjamin. Plus Buffalo is introducing new philosophy under Daboll. All eyes are on Allen, first-round pick out of Wyoming, and how long it will take to develop behind former Bengals backup McCarron and returning backup Nathan Peterman.EXPECTATIONS: Defense should be improved entering its second season, and with plenty of reinforcements. Can offense develop threat beyond McCoy, who turned 30 on July 12. Though long-term future looks bright, given young core of talent on roster, early projection is Bills might take step back in Year 2 of McDermott and Beane’s rebuilding process.—MIAMI DOLPHINS (6-10)OPEN CAMP: July 26, Davie, FloridaLAST YEAR: Dolphins regressed in second season under Adam Gase. As rookie coach he led them to 10 wins and playoff berth, but in 2017 Dolphins never recovered from quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s season-ending knee injury in training camp, and deteriorated into wildly inconsistent, undisciplined team. They led to start fourth quarter in only two games and were outscored by 112 points, fourth worst in NFL. Owner Stephen Ross decided to keep organization’s core leadership intact, but Gase and executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum may need turnaround to keep jobs beyond this year.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: S Minkah Fitzpatrick, G Josh Sitton Cody Ford Jersey Boys , DE Robert Quinn, WR Danny Amendola, WR Albert Wilson, C Daniel Kilgore, TE Mike Gesicki, RB Frank Gore, RB Kalen Ballage, QB Brock Osweiler.IMPORTANT LOSSES: DT Ndamukong Suh, WR Jarvis Landry, C Mike Pouncey, G Jermon Bushrod, K Cody Parkey, QB Jay Cutler, QB Matt Moore, TE Julius Thomas, LB Lawrence Timmons.CAMP NEEDS: Dolphins will count on two players with no NFL experience to assume significant roles. Linebacker Raekwon McMillan, their most promising rookie in 2017, is back after knee injury in first exhibition game ended his season. Fitzpatrick is expected to make immediate impact after being taken with 11th overall pick in April. Most of all, Gase needs to keep Tannehill healthy as quarterback comes back from two serious injuries to left knee since December 2016.EXPECTATIONS: Tannehill became starter as rookie in 2012 and has still never taken postseason snap, and there’s plenty of reason to doubt that will change this year. While he returns, Dolphins bid adieu to three players with Pro Bowl resumes in Suh, Landry and Pouncey. There were financial reasons, and Gase also wanted change in culture. He believes addition of such veterans as Gore, Amendola and Quinn represents upgrade, but oddsmakers disagree. They project Dolphins to again be six-win team.—NEW YORK JETS (5-11)OPEN CAMP: July 26, Atlantic Health Jets Training Center, Florham Park, New JerseyLAST YEAR: Rebuilding Jets finished 5-11 for second straight season under coach Todd Bowles, but exceeded expectations by many who predicted New York to have trouble winning more than couple games. New York was competitive in nearly every game, and team credited Bowles’ culture change for improved attitude around facility. Both Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan received two-year contract extensions after season. QB Josh McCown had career year at 38, setting personal bests with 2,926 yards passing Infant Cody Ford Jersey , 19 TD passes and five TD runs before missing final three games with broken left hand. His exceptional leadership was also praised by teammates. WR Robby Anderson emerged as legitimate deep threat with 63 catches, 941 yards and seven TD receptions. Defense struggled to get to QBs, but solid play by rookie safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye was big positive.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: Rookie QB Sam Darnold, CB Trumaine Johnson, RB Isaiah Crowell, QB Teddy Bridgewater, WR Terrelle Pryor, LB Avery Williamson, C Spencer Long, C Travis Swanson, DE Henry Anderson, S J.J. Wilcox, K Cairo Santos.IMPORTANT LOSSES: DE Muhammad Wilkerson, LB Demario Davis, RB Matt Forte, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, DE Kony Ealy, C Wesley Johnson, K Chandler Catanzaro.CAMP NEEDS: Familiar theme for Jets and their fans: all eyes on QBs. But this summer will be particularly intriguing with Darnold – No. 3 overall pick out of USC – being given every opportunity to win starting job in competition with McCown and Bridgewater. Darnold will have to show he can operate system of new offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, promoted from QBs coach after John Morton was fired. WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) and Pryor (ankle) coming back from injuries that ended seasons early. Long, coming off knee injury, will be looked at to anchor O-line after not practicing in offseason. Finding consistent pass rusher at OLB will also be key, with recent draft picks Lorenzo Mauldin, Dylan Donahue in mix of players needing to prove themselves.EXPECTATIONS: Acting owner Christopher Johnson has made it clear playoffs are not mandatory this season, although Jets have failed to reach postseason for last seven years. Team made lots of key moves in offseason, with selection of Darnold re-energizing fan base waiting for legitimate franchise QB for decades. Still, progress will be expected from team with sights set on making even more noise next season – especially with New York expected to have NFL’s most salary cap room heading into 2019 offseason.—AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL
