The Buffalo Bills have had an interesting pre-season as they head in to the 2015 NFL campaign, looking to reach the playoffs.
They have a new head coach in Rex Ryan, who pulled the ultimate troll move when he decided to claim former Jets linebacker I.K Enemkpali off the Waiver wire after he punched Geno Smith in the face, breaking his jaw. They also traded for running back LeSean McCoy.
But, the Bills are locked in a contract battle with star man Marcell Dareus, and things are only getting worse.

Star Man Unhappy
Dareus is still seeking a contract extension from the Bills as he gets set to enter the final year of his rookie contract with the team, being well worth the 3rd overall pick Buffalo spent on him out of Alabama.
The Bills were hopeful of getting a deal done with their star man prior to the start of training camp. However, an agreement has yet to be reached between the two sides and it seems Dareus is getting increasingly frustrated with the process.
“They’re making it hard,” Dareus said, according to the Buffalo News. “And it’s just really making me unhappy. I feel like they don’t really want me here.”
Dareus went on to reiterate the point that he felt like the Bills don't really seem desperate to keep him, which would be insane when you consider the fact that he is 25-years old, has already been to two Pro Bowls and is still improving.
“We’re still waiting,” he continued. “I feel like they don’t want me here as bad as I want to be here, as bad as the fans and my team wants me here. I feel like they’re saying, ‘Whatever. You come a dime a dozen.”
Dareus is going to get paid a lot of money, wherever he ends up. The fact that Buffalo have the salary free to make it happen and they aren't is very confusing.
