Just another day to some but we are one day closer to the beginning of training camp for the Buffalo Bills.

Here are your daily links for the Buffalo Bills from around the web.

What they’re saying: Bills 2015 playoff chances and the most underrated player on the roster

"Why They Have a Chance: Former Jets coach Rex Ryan was brought in, after Doug Marrone surprisingly opted out of his contract, to help lead the Bills back to the playoffs for the first time since 1999. When we think of Rex Ryan, the first thing that comes to mind is defense. Whether as the head coach of the Jets or defensive coordinator with the Ravens, Ryan’s teams were always strong defensively. With the Bills, Ryan inherits a team with a number of good players on defense already in place. What Ryan needs is an offense that can put up points and keep his defense fresh with a strong running game. In comes offensive coordinator Greg Roman and Running back LeSean McCoy. Roman was Jim Harbaugh’s offensive coordinator in San Francisco where he over looked an offensive unit that finished 4th overall in rushing last season."

Fred Jackson visits Forestville school to honor M&T Bank Touchdown for Teachers Winner

"Last week, Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson visited the classroom of 2015 Buffalo Bills and M&T Bank Touchdown for Teachers grand prize winner Scott Hazelton of Forestville Elementary School.The seventh annual M&T Bank Touchdown for Teachers program honored Hazelton among a group of Western New York teachers named as finalists for their outstanding service to their schools and communities. Honorees were chosen based on their amount of involvement in the school or community, degree of positive impact on the school or community and their demonstrated commitment to education."

After 28 years, Kelly’s still a happy camper

"The campers only know the camp, not the legend that helped build it into a summer staple for so many youngsters in Western New York.They know Jim Kelly, the teacher of football and life lessons. They don’t know Jim Kelly, the quarterback of all of those great Buffalo Bills teams of the early 1990s.Their fathers and mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers know that Jim Kelly."

Marcell Dareus says it’s ‘so obtainable’ for Bills to be best D ever

"You know how you can tell Rex Ryan is the Bills coach? Look no further than the braggadocio with which the players on Buffalo’s roster conduct themselves.To wit: Marcell Dareus told the Toronto Sun it’s “so obtainable” for the Bills to have the greatest defense in the history of football.“Best ever,” Dareus said. “It’s so obtainable. All we have to do is continue to do what we want, and not what we can. If we do what we want, and do everything to head in that direction, why can’t we? Why can’t we?”"

Goodwin: \”I’m actually a part of the offense\”

"Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin played only ten games last season and was targeted in the passing game only nine times.  Some of that, by his own admission, was due to not being available enough because of injuries and recovering.  But there was also a prevailing thought that former head coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nate Hackett simply didn’t utilize him the right way, even when healthy.Goodwin gave an indication things will be different this year, and that he couldn’t be happier about that, when he joined me on The John Murphy Show Tuesday night."
