Happy Monday Everyone! Hope the weekend was a good one for you. Back after taking a day off, here are the daily links for the Buffalo Bills.
EJ Manuel is coming into his second season as the Buffalo Bills starting quarterback. Hoping to have an injury free and more productive season he is stepping up his game coming in to his sophomore season. He is also not afraid to make it known when someone else on the offensive side of the ball is falling short and he hopes that others will do that with him as well. Accountability is the name of the game. [Buffalo Bills]
A while back we looked at the partnership with Tom Golisano and Scott Congel, successful shopping mall developer, in a joint effort of bidding on the team and also providing land to develop the new stadium on. This partnership has since whittled away to nothing and is in a word ‘dead’. Golisano is still in the market to bid on the Bills but as for land to go along with that bid, new developments need to be made. [Buffalo News]
Buffalo, who plays in the Hall of Fame game on Aug 3rd against the New York Giants, get additional practices as well as get to be one of two teams to begin training camp earlier than anyone else in the league as well as get an additional preseason game to boot. All of this does add up and Nathaniel Hackett feels that the extra practices and competition is going to help the offense as well as number 3, EJ Manuel. [Buffalo News]
The Cleveland Browns ultimately passed on Sammy Watkins and went with the style of their new head coach, defense. Mike Pettine looked to have a strong cornerback corps and drafted one of them during the 2014 NFL draft in the 8th spot, after trading back to 9 with the Bills and then up 1 with the Vikings. Having bookend corners is great but when you can’t move the ball or score points, it really becomes a muted point. [Pro Players Insider]
As the Bills wait for the team to be sold and a new owner comes in, the thought process has to be concerning for some people within the organization. Mainly, those in front office positions, of which the owner will deal with directly. It is for sure that some will lose their jobs just based on the change of the owner and the direction that they want to go as well as who they fell comfortable dealing with. They have their own people as well. Who will stay with the Bills when the new owner comes in? [Pro Football Talk]
