After more than five months, the Buffalo Bills are back on the practice field and have begun preparations for the 2014 season. Last week was the first time that rookies, offseason acquisitions and returning players from last year were practicing together under the direction of the Bills coaching staff.
The tough part of organized team activities (OTAs) is not to overreact to what is happening on the football field. It is easy to jump the gun and make conclusions and forget the season is still three months away. A lot can change between now and the start of the 2014 season.
I found five takeaways from the first OTA that could develop into key storylines heading into training camp and the 2014 season.
