Rex Ryan's thoughts on his former Bills and Jets quarterbacks were captured in Tuesday night's episode of Hard Knocks during an ESPN production meeting with Bucs QB Jameis Winston. "I'm jealous because I never had a quarterback like you, you know what I mean?" Ryan said to Winston. "That's why I'm sitting here and I'm pissed off about it." Ryan also gushed over DeSean Jackson, asking the Bucs receiver, "How much would it have cost us if I was still in Buffalo to come get you? Because you know that was part of the plan." When Jackson mentioned the cold weather, Ryan said, "I would have brought a heater or something in there for you."

Bills RB LeSean McCoy commented on speculation about his future in Buffalo with an Instagram post Tuesday night saying, "So popping up they just keep popping up with rumors ...u can't control the future but put ya future in Gods hands and watch." The speculative topic of trading McCoy has gained steam in recent days following Buffalo dealing away top receiver Sammy Watkins.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday his team must adjust after the unexpected retirement Sunday of WR Anquan Boldin.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday he will not get into whether Bills are asking Anquan Boldin to give back his $1 million signing bonus. Buffalo has yet to make an official move about Boldin -- probably reserve/retired -- because McDermott said there is still a "process" to go through.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday that GM Brandon Beane is "always" looking at options to upgrade at wide receiver, but did not specifically address whether Beane is taking a look at veteran free agents at wide receiver.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday that QB Tyrod Taylor is "resilient" will "adapt" to changing situation at wide receiver, which includes trade of Sammy Watkins, retirement of Anquan Boldin and injury to Jordan Matthews.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday it is a "fair question" to ask if Buffalo would have traded Sammy Watkins had they known Anquan Boldin, signed four days earlier, would have retired. McDermott, however, said the two moves are "separate entities."

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday that NFL is a "league of opportunity" and Buffalo will need another receiver to step up in wake of Anquan Boldin's retirement. McDermott specifically mentioned undrafted rookies Brandon Reilly (Nebraska) and Daikiel Shorts (West Virginia) as players who impressed him in last week's preseason loss to the Eagles.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday he "respects" WR Anquan Boldin's decision to retire and will "adjust" accordingly. McDermott said he has been involved in the NFL long enough not to be "surprised by anything."

Bills LT Cordy Glenn (foot) and WR Jordan Matthews (sternum) are both on schedule to return for Week 1, coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday. Glenn and Matthews will participate in the walkthrough portions of Tuesday's practice.

The Bills did not make any transaction involving Anquan Boldin on Monday. Their roster remains at 90 players. Boldin announced his retirement Sunday evening.
