The Buffalo Bills don’t have too much going on in July until training camp begins, but two dates stand out on the calendar.

The NFL season gets closer with each passing day and that means the Buffalo Bills will be back on the field before we know it. Well, in just under four weeks.

The month of June was a slow one for news, as usual, and the same will be true for much of July as long as no one on the roster does anything crazy.

So as we prepare to enter another July, let’s look at two dates to circle on the calendar.

July 11

The 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft takes place July 11 and the Bills may decide to put in a bid for one of the players available. We took a look at this event and some of the top players here.

The event isn’t always at the forefront of the NFL calendar, but it is this year due to the fact that some top corners are available for the taking.

July 26

Here is the date all Bills fans should have circled on their calendars. The start of training camp!

That’s right, we are less than four weeks away from some meaningful practices where positional battles will be decided. Most importantly, we will begin to see how the quarterback depth chart shakes out.

Training camp is a great chance for young fans to see their favorite players and get some autographs in the summer heat. And as a friendly reminder, don’t push kids out of the way for autographs if you are an adult.

The first preseason game is August 9 so things will begin moving quickly once camp gets underway. Then comes the first regular season game on September 9.
