Buffalo’s annual training camp stay at St. John Fisher College in Rochester ended today with one final practice. After Buffalo’s preseason contest Friday in Minnesota, the team will spend the final weeks of preseason back at One Bills Drive at the team’s practice facility.
I’d highly recommend reading Chris Brown’s training camp awards over at BuffaloBills.com for the full scoop on who performed well at camp. No one gets to watch more practice than Brown, so his insight is always valuable. His camp MVP was TE Scott Chandler, which is a good sign for the year to come. The Bills getting consistent play from Chandler would go a long way to opening up this offense.
Head coach Chan Gailey says that, overall, he was pleased with how camp went. “Camp was good. I really think we accomplished a great deal,” he said. “We were able to evaluate a lot of players. I think our players got better during this time. They had to fight through some hot days, some rainy days, they had to fight through. It was good for us.”
Safety and team leader George Wilson was even more impressed with this camp, saying: “Just seeing where we were as an organization and a team in the past to where we are now I really think this was the most productive camp we’ve had as a team overall,” said Wilson. “It’s been a different mentality from day one of our offseason program.”
It’s just words, of course. But it’s good to hear continued optimism out of Bills camp.
The team will have a walkthrough Thursday in preparation for Friday’s game.
