This is an important offseason for the Buffalo Bills and that starts with this week’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

The festivities are underway in Indianapolis as the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine is in full force. Today featured interviews with coaches and personnel, and both Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane answered some questions.

Since we weren’t in Indy ourselves, let’s take a look at some of the highlights via the team’s Twitter account.

Bills fans are dying to learn more about the quarterback situation and McDermott provided a great non-answer. Of course he isn’t going to say that he wants a new quarterback, so an answer like this is common. No lies were told in what can be deemed a perfect political response.

Beane took a similar route when it comes to the quarterback position.

Once again, nothing but facts. Vague facts, but that’s what we will get this time of year. It’s better than being an unprofessional organization that openly says they are moving on from a quarterback still under contract.

Things were a bit more direct when it came to another featured position on offense.

McDermott offered up a generic response on LeSean McCoy, but Beane gave a bit more clarity about the running back. Nothing surprising here, especially given the way the team is looking to actively improve and help the veteran back be even better moving forward.

Other comments included the fact the team would love to have Kyle Williams back, although the decision is ultimately up to the veteran. It sure would be odd to watch a Bills game without Williams, so hopefully the two sides can figure something out if Williams wants to keep playing. It would be hard to imagine him returning for another year only to want out of the place he has spent his entire career.

One final comment that was interesting had to do with the signing of Vontae Davis, but another tidbit stands out.

That last part about E.J. Gaines is quite interesting, but Beane is obviously going to say that as opposed to saying the team is done with the corner.

This time of year is filled with vague press conferences and fans won’t know much until actual moves are made. For now, we’ll take what we can get.
