The Buffalo Bills are finishing up this week’s mandatory minicamp, giving fans over a month to build up more speculation before training camp begins.

This is that odd time of the summer when there is a surge of news and quotes surrounding the Buffalo Bills. Then it all fades away until training camp begins.

The team’s mandatory minicamp comes to a close today and it has already given us plenty to talk about. Just wait until training camp and there is practice every single day.

Even with all the quotes and videos on Twitter, this is more of a chance for the coaches to get a sneak peek of their players rather than a time for the players to surge up or down the depth chart. It also gives the players a chance to see what kind of shape they are in before the practice is full-time once again.

The main takeaways from this minicamp will revolve around the quarterback position. All three quarterbacks seem to be in an open competition right now, but I still don’t think Nathan Peterman has any shot at starting. Yet crazier things have happened, such as when he started last year.

As minicamp comes to a close, here’s a look at the latest Bills news in a Thursday edition of The Morning Charge.
