Organized team activities started for the Buffalo Bills last Monday, and the team will run practices three days a week for the remainder of the month. OTAs are completely volunteer-based—although it is unwise to not attend them—and it gives players their first shot at proving themselves worthy of a roster spot.
Plays run during OTAs are dumbed down to accelerate a more fluid style of practice, but players young and old will soon be asked to master the new Buffalo Bills’ playbook.
There are many storylines headlining the Bills’ offseason event this year with a completely reshuffled front office and a newly-drafted quarterback with charisma that can charm even the hardest-hearted media members. Not to mention, Buffalo’s franchise-tagged safety Jairus Byrd is missing in action without the long-term contract that is well overdue.
As the Bills cap off a busy week of practice and front-page pressers, there is plenty still to be watching for in the next two weeks.
