Bills Set 2 Crucial Goals For Training Camp

As the Buffalo Bills gear up for their training at St. John Fisher College in the coming month, all eyes are on the potential receivers for Josh Allen. The team's receiver corps and the locker room will see a significant turnover, with many new faces. McDermott has informed the team that a substantial 40% of the Bills roster will be revamped by the start of the season, marking a significant shift in the team's dynamics.

Bills Set Focus For Training Camp

Bills general manager Brandon Beane has confidently assured the players and fans that there is no need to worry about the changes.


"Change can be good, sometimes people are resistant to change... we've had success, so why change? It's the nature of the business; you always want to stay one step ahead... this is a new team; this is truly a lot of new faces."


Bills Conscious Of Revamped Roster


First, the Bills will work to build team chemistry. They seem to be aware of what that kind of turnover can do to a locker room.

"Obviously, there's a high percentage of new players, new faces, so the more reps we can get the better," McDermott said Thursday. "I appreciate the players' willingness and their attitude when they went out there. Not all teams are practicing on the third day of minicamp, and I appreciated their attitude."
Bills D-Line Gets to know each other

The defensive line is trying to get to know each other. They've held several team-building outings this month. Defensive line coach Marcus West had players over to his house this week before the players left Buffalo.


"We had dinner just to talk about OTAs and kind of see where we are and how we feel," Daquan Jones said. "And we came a long way just being able to gel with these young guys so quickly and all being on the same page. And we are really just being ourselves, inviting the new guys into the room; it's been a great minicamp."


Starters Sit On The Final Day Of Minicamp


Bills Josh Allen Works with receivers

Josh Allen and many of the number ones did not participate in team drills on Thursday.


Allen had a playlist and wore a headset when the backups led the 11-on-11 drills. The Bills franchise QB is working individually with all the wide receivers on the roster.


Bills reporter Sal Capaccio said it looked like Allen was calling plays for backups Mitch Trubisky and Shane Buechele. Cappacio reports the players fighting for roster spots got long looks today.


 "I think from where we started at from the first OTA practice to now, I feel like we have gotten way, way, way cleaner," cornerback Kaiir Elam said. When you know what you're doing, you can play a lot faster. So, I feel like the effort was a lot better too than when we first started." 


Turning Heads At Buffalo Bills Minicamp

Wide receivers biggest question for Bills

The wide receivers will get a lot of attention when camp opens on July 23. Young receiver KJ Hamler burned Rasul Douglas on a 50-yard catch today.


He was a second-round pick from Penn State in 2020. He did not play last season after being diagnosed with pericarditis, a rare condition that causes swelling in the membrane surrounding the heart.


He's a lightning-fast receiver who ran a 4.2-40-yard dash at the 2020 combine, but his size is an issue. Standing only five-foot-nine, fighting for contested catches can be a problem. But his speed makes him dangerous. Barring any moves in the next six weeks, the team will have 13 wide receivers battling for just six spots on the roster.


Beane said, “We’ve got a lot of competition, obviously at receiver." One of those new receivers said he's ready for the battle, “I’m happy to be a part of this team because they do carry that winning culture,” former Miami Dolphin Chase Claypool said. “And I experienced it on the other side of the ball, so now I’m really excited to be a part of it.”
