Buffalo Bills 

As we get closer to the mandatory Bills training camps, the fans, analysts, sportswriters, and sports show hosts all have ideas on who will make the 53 man roster. So I will take the time to make a few projected depth chart roster spots at the QB, RB, WR and O-line positions.

At the Quarterback position, Josh Allen will be the Week One starter. Matt Barkley will be the backup quarterback and Tyree Jackson will be the third stringer as he will get to watch and learn from Allen and Barkley.

The Running Back Position will be interesting to watch as rumors and ideas are swirling that a trade involving LeSean McCoy could be made. But with all that being said, I still think LeSean McCoy will be the Week One starter and he will be paired with Frank Gore as the backup and Devin Singletary will be the third string runner.

It is very important to have receivers to throw the ball to when your a rookie or second year quarterback trying to prove your worth in the NFL. The Bills understood just that after last season saw the Bills struggle on offense under Brain Daboll. The new Bills receivers include Cole Beasley, John Brown, Duke Williams, and Andre Roberts. The projected starters will be John Brown as the #1 receiver then Robert Foster will play at the 2 and Cole Beasley will be in the slot. Duke Williams will be the 4th opinion and a potential red zone threat.

The offense last season was horrible no thanks to a terrible offensive line. The Bills immediately started off the free agency period with getting new offensive players on the line that by many where coined as the worse offensive line in football. With the new additions, the offensive line starters will be Mitch Morse, Cody Ford, Ty Nsekhe, Quinton Spain, and Dion Dawkins.

What are your thoughts? Who are your projections as camp is quickly approaching us?

NBA 

In what has become the most shocking move in free agency, Khwai Leonard and Paul George have joined the Los Angeles Clippers.  This move some will say has shifted the balance in the NBA as most people were looking for a super team to be created.  Now the question is becoming who is the best duo in the league.  Let’s not forget that Russell Westbrook also has joined the Houston Rockets in which they traded Chris Paul to Oklahoma City.  I personally think this move does not make the Rockets an NBA Finals team because of the fact that they will have to change their style of play.  Who is your favorite NBA duo and are the Lakers still the favorite to win the NBA Finals?

In Other News

Simone Halep and Novak Djokovic have won this year’s Wimbledon tournament in their respective tourneys by beating Serena Williams and Roger Federer.  Is it time for Serena Williams to retire?  She is 2 grand slams away from passing the record held by Margaret Court with 24 grand slams.
