Buffalo Bills News
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 projected starters? Next week, I will breakdown more positions as training camp is approaching us very fast.
Buffalo Bisons News
The Bisons finished the first part of their homestand by winning two out of three games against Tim Tebow and the Syracuse Mets. This week will see the Bisons play at home from Monday until today against Lehigh Valley. After they finish with Lehigh they will play Syracuse again but on the road this time from July 3rd to the July 7th. Bo Bichette should be in the All Star game as he has been the Bisons best player this season battling .315 since coming to the minors. Will the Bisons be able to add to their above .500 record? Currently, the Bisons are 42-39 and 4 games back from Scranton Wilkes Barre for 1st place.
