The Buffalo Bills and the Buffalo Sabres welcomed some potential new stars to town, and both are showing early support of the city.

We are quickly approaching July which means Buffalo Bills training camp is right around the corner. Well, at least at the end of the month.

That gives fans one month to continue the Josh Allen hype train, and several more months to continue the Rasmus Dahlin hype train, although the latter may not end for years.

This past weekend saw both rookies show some Buffalo love on social media, with Allen welcoming Dahlin to town and Dahlin repping a Bills hat on his flight into the city.

This obviously doesn’t translate to on-field success, but it is still a good sign. Fans don’t want players to get drafted to Buffalo, only for the players to pull an Eli Manning. Allen and Dahlin have embraced Buffalo so far which means their respective jerseys will be all over town this year and hopefully for years to come.

It was generally a slow weekend for Bills news. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as the news should ramp up once we hit July.

Let’s take a look at the latest stories surrounding the team in a Monday edition of The Morning Charge.
