Rookie receiver Dezmin Lewis must get physical

"He’s not in the Southland Conference anymore. Dezmin Lewis realized this quickly at Buffalo Bills training camp.When the pads came on, cornerbacks shoved him, clutched him and re-routed him those first five yards off the line of scrimmage.“I’m from a DI-AA school,” Lewis said. “The physicality level is a lot different than the NFL. I could get open easily with just a passive route. But here, everything has to be precise and crisp.“It’s a big difference.”"

Manuel, the wild card, Tyrod Taylor. As the New York Times noted, the strengths and weaknesses of Manuel and Cassel are more or less clear, but Taylor’s lack of playing time while riding the bench behind Joe Flacco in Baltimore made him an intriguing choice."

Bills turning to Steward

"All it takes is one injury in today’s NFL for a team’s depth to be exposed.The situation the Buffalo Bills find themselves in after losing reserve middle linebacker Ty Powell for the season because of a torn ACL illustrates that perfectly.Powell, primarily a special teams player in his first two seasons with the Bills, had been praised throughout the spring and early in training camp by coach Rex Ryan for the job he had done defensively. It was clear the coaching staff felt comfortable with Powell if anything happened to starting middle linebacker Preston Brown."
