The Texans on Saturday announced a five-year contract with Bills vice president of player personnel Brian Gaine to become their general manager. Gaine joined the Bills' front office in May after he was a candidate to replace Doug Whaley as GM. The Bills are not expected to immediately fill Gaine's position, leaving GM Brandon Beane and assistant GM Joe Schoen as the top two evaluators in Buffalo's front office for the time being.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane confirmed Tuesday that senior vice president of football administration Jim Overdorf is expected to continue in his role as contract negotiator. Overdorf has been with the Bills since 1986 and has been involved in contract negotiations and managing the salary cap for more than a decade. Overdorf is one of the few holdovers from the previous Doug Whaley-led front office in Buffalo. "Jim and I, we've jelled well. He's filling the same role. He's our chief negotiator. I don't see anything changing," Beane said Tuesday.

GM Brandon Beane on Bills' salary-cap situation: "We're in better position than [the previous regime was] a year before. But we're not out of the woods. We're still working on it, we're still massaging it. With some of the moves we've made, we still have to eat some dead money. It's heading in right direction. 2018 was better than 2017. And I foresee 2019 being a little rosier than 2018."
