4 Questions Before Buffalo Bills Training Camp
With training camp a little over a month away, the Buffalo Bills have their roster mainly set with very little issues moving forward. However, the roster isn’t perfect yet, and the Bills still need to make some minor improvements while they wait on players to fully develop. So, what questions still remain?
Will Jordan Poyer get an extension?
Before the draft, Jordan Poyer hired powerhouse agent Drew Rosenhaus. Since then, Poyer has been a no-show up until Bills mandatory mini-camp this week, and wants to get paid like one of the best safeties in the league. Should the 31 year old All-Pro get a new deal from the Bills, it would most likely be similar to what Tyrann Mathieu received from the New Orleans Saints this offseason (three years, $28.3 million).
Who will step up to be the starting cornerback while Tre White is out?
We haven’t seen Tre White on the field since he tore his ACL last Thanksgiving. And we may not see him through the first part of this season. So, who will step up in camp and the preseason? First round pick Kaiir Elam has drawn some high praise from Bills DC Leslie Frazier, who said he has stood out among the young players and to expect him to step up and play well.
Which RBs will get the touches?
The Bills did a lot of work on the backfield this offseason, bringing in Duke Johnson in free agency and drafting James Cook in the third round. With Devin Singletary expected to get the majority of touches in the running game, Cook could be an explosive option for Josh Allen in the passing game, as he totaled 284 yards and four touchdowns in his final year at Georgia.
Which young pass rusher will line up opposite Von Miller?
The Buffalo Bills of course didn’t forget about their defensive line this offseason, especially their pass rush, as they added Von Miller and Shaq Lawson. Greg Rousseau would be the presumed starter in this scenario, with a little rotation of Lawson, Carlos Basham, and A.J. Epenesa. Rousseau started off strong last season, but was the product of a bad rotation. With a larger role this season, Groot should be the pass rusher we all saw in 2019 with the Miami Hurricanes.
