Buffalo Bills: Things We Know This Week
“Things That Make You Go Hmmm…” – Arsenio Hall
Rookie minicamp officially kicked off this weekend.
“The main thing is teach them some things and see what they can learn, process, all that stuff, especially some of the tryout guys we do have serious interest in. I think last year we signed Ja’Marcus Ingram and Kingsley [Johnathan] from this camp, so we’ve signed some guys in the past. We’re definitely evaluating some of these other guys and part of that is how are they mentally fitting, is this going to be a big adjustment or are they picking it up pretty quick?” – Brandon Beane
10 voluntary OTA practices will occur between May 22nd and June 8th.
“Every coach I’ve worked with is different in some way. I think I got a really good one here.” –Dalton Kincaid
June 13th is the date in which mandatory mini-camp will commence.
St. John Fisher University will host Buffalo Bills training camp in late July.
