Orchard Park, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy heard about the trade rumors that were reported Tuesday claiming Philadelphia officials called the Bills about a potential deal for McCoy after Eagles running back Jay Ajayi went down for the season with a torn ACL. But the 30-year-old running back didn't want to give his feelings about the potential trade other than to say he shouldn't have been traded the last time it happened. "I just stay focused," McCoy said. "I should have never gotten traded (from the Eagles to the Bills in 2015). I was killing stuff. I don't ever really pay too much attention to it." Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott knew the questions were coming about the McCoy rumors and he wanted to get out in front of the situation right away at Wednesday's press conference. "LeSean's one of our better players I thought he had a good game the (against Tennessee) and really we're just looking forward to playing the Houston Texans," McDermott … [Read more...] about Bills’ LeSean McCoy, Sean McDermott don’t want to talk about trade rumors

By BEN MONTGOMERY, KELLEY BENHAM FRENCH and THOMAS FRENCH They were here because of Parkland. And before that: Sandy Hook. Before that: Columbine. Outside, as the sun came up, kids wearing "March for Our Lives" T-shirts clogged the streets carrying signs that read "Protect kids not guns." These 21 strangers gathered inside, away from the noise. They had traveled to Washington, D.C., about a month after the Parkland shooting, not to march, but to take part in an experiment. They were victims of gun violence, and gun collectors, and cops and lawyers and hunters and teenagers and moms. Could they do a better job talking with a group of strangers than they had managed to do with their own families? Could they agree on some measures to mitigate the crisis? Could they have a productive conversation, or even a civil one? A gun, by its nature, is a polarizing thing. A gun forces us to envision ourselves on either one end of it or the other.
