Camp without fans is no fun.

  • Not really a roster takeaway but an observation . With the Bills censoring reporters this year, it was a guessing game to really see who is standing out. Do we really know if Gabe Davis stood out as much as he did? How did Dane Jackson play when starters Levi Wallace and Josh Norman went down, where did Cody Ford play?. I can go on and on, but hopefully this is the only year like this.

What is Reggie Gilliam?

  • The Bills have their undrafted darling this year, and it’s Reggie Gilliam. And what is Reggie Gillam? Tight End? Fullback? Special Teamer? The answer probably lies in all of the above. It will suck to lose a vetern like DiMarco but Daboll now has a faster, more athletic, “fullback” to utilize on offense. Whether he sees the same amount of snaps as DiMarco remains to be seen, but having a player who can line up at multiple positions could create some favorable match ups for Buffalo.

Money not an issue.

One of the biggest questions this offseason was whether  keeping Trent Murphy made fiscal sense? Clearly money wasn’t an issue. The Bills re-signed  Poyer, Dawkins, and most importantly, Tre’Davious White all while keeping Murphy.( and money left over for Matt Milano.)The Bills have a deep rotation of five defensive ends with plenty of experience for AJ Epenesa to learn from. 

Lite on corners.

Arguably the weakest spot on this team is CB 2. With Norman’s recent regression, and a questionable play of Wallace last year, and the with  recent injuries to both of them, it is surprising the Bills only went five deep at cornerback. Cam Lewis and Dane Jackson can easily be brought up need be, but they will be light on game days.

Loaded up on Special Teams.

The Bills have a lot of special teams talent on this year’s team. Between returning pro bowler Andre Roberts, new addition Tyler Matakevich, and college special teams stud Reggie Gillams, this unit is set to be one of the strongest in the league if rookie kicker Tyler Bass can carry his weight.
