Buffalo Bills Resume OTAs

The Buffalo Bills, along with most of the NFL will resume their OTAs either today or tomorrow.

The Bills and five other teams will start their second round of OTAs tomorrow, Wednesday.  Twenty-Five other teams will begin today; Bears, Bengals, Browns, Buccaneers, Cardinals, Chargers, Chiefs, Colts, Cowboys, Dolphins, Eagles, Falcons, 49ers, Jaguars, Jets, Lions, Panthers, Patriots, Raiders, Redskins, Saints, Seahawks, Steelers, Texans and Titans

The only team not having OTAs this week will be the St. Louis Rams.

OTAs are a practice in which there is no hitting allowed.  These are practices that are designed to help players learn the play book and allows coaches to begin to assess the talent on the team.  There are other restrictions during the OTA process. Players can not work one on one, but team drills with 11 on 11 can be conducted, mainly done as a walk-through.  Also players are not allowed to work for more than 6 hours and each practice can not go for more than 2 hours.

OTAs are also voluntary and coaches are able to give instruction but are not able to force a player or players to do excessive work based on this contract.

OTAs bring us one step closer to the start of the season.  Although not very entertaining when really the only thing that can be done is a walk through on a team level, but still we are just over 2 months away from Buffalo Bills football; Aug 3rd, 8 pm, Bills/Giants Hall of Fame game.
