The team is led by their head coach of two years, Rex Ryan, and their general manager of four years Doug Whaley. This season is the 47th season in the National Football League and is the 57th season overall.
As many as nine members of the Bills from the 2015 team have been retained, and they include Mario Butler, Mike Gillislee and Corton Schmidt. Richie Incognito have been given a three-year extension, while Cordy Glenn’s extension is up to five years. Players from Cincinatti Bengals, New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts have been traded.
This preseason is very important for the Buffalo Bills, because the Bills will attempt to break their sixteen year playoff drought (multiple consecutive seasons of not winning), which is the longest drought active playoff drought among the major American football clubs like Lions, Eagles and Vikings. This drought is longest for the Buffalo Bills too, their last victory being at the 1999 AFC (American Football Conference) Wild Card playoffs.
