Buffalo Bills Circling The Wagons: Marcell Dareus, Sammy Watkins


Last day before a long weekend.  Getting ready to relax.  Marcell Dareus has received his suspension of 1 game, pretty much what was expected from the league.  A breakdown of the 90 man roster into depth chart style. What are some of the training camp battles that we could possibly see out of camp this year for the Buffalo Bills.

These and more with the daily links from around the web for your Buffalo Bills.

Sal’s current Bills All-90 depth chart

"The draft is complete, all the picks have signed their contracts, undrafted free agents have been added, and Phase Two of offseason conditioning is over.  The Bills have 90 players on their roster, the number they’ll bring to training camp in July.  They begin OTAs next week and coaches can finally see their new-look offense go against Rex Ryan’s defense, albeit in limited capacity.  But to do that, they’ll have to have a preliminary depth chart to figure out reps and rotations."

Dareus receives one-game suspension

"The Buffalo Bills will be without Pro Bowl defensive tackle Marcell Dareus for their season opener against the Indianapolis Colts. The NFL announced Thursday afternoon that Dareus has received a one-game suspension without pay for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. He will be eligible to practice at training camp and participate in preseason games."

Bills‘ Powell wants to be more than special

"Ty Powell has made a home for himself in Buffalo thanks primarily to his special-teams work with the Bills. Now heading into his third season with the team, he hopes to find a spot as a regular contributor on defense. Powell is currently running with the second team at middle linebacker behind Preston Brown, meaning he’s just a play away from filling a critical role for a defense that expects to challenge for the top spot in the NFL."

Buffalo Bills training camp battles

"It’s that dull time for the NFL right now.  Rookies are signing contracts and some late free agent signings are happening, but there’s no real action happening right now in the league.  This is the calm before the storm that is training camp.  Training camp isn’t necessarily important to every player.  Superstars know their jobs are secured, and it’s really just going through the motions for a couple months until the real games begin in September.  However, for some players it’s a final interview, their last shot to make an impression on the coaching staff, and their ultimate opportunity to make an NFL roster."

Sammy Watkins Shouldn’t Be Forgotten as Young NFL Star

"Sammy Watkins. Remember him? It was just 12 months ago that Watkins was the main attraction of the 2014 wide receiver class. Not only had he been selected in the top five of the NFL draft, but the Buffalo Bills had traded away a future first-round pick to move up and make sure they could select him. Watkins was the main attraction of the class; he’s not anymore. That’s for certain."
