The Buffalo Bills have enjoyed some success from a few people who have come over from the CFL. That and more in today’s Morning Charge.

Today marks the final Friday before the Buffalo Bills begin training camp. Can you believe it is already that time of year?

The only stories surrounding the team right now are the fallout from the allegations against LeSean McCoy along with Josh Allen’s unsigned contract. Because of that, we have been getting creative with ideas.

The latest idea had to do individuals who came over from the Canadian Football League and had success with the Bills in the NFL. The list contained both players and coaches as the Bills have quite the strong Canadian connection.

The most notable name isn’t even a player, but rather a head coach. Marv Levy spent some time in the CFL before he eventually became a legend in Buffalo. The CFL has a great history so it is certainly not a bad place to gain some experience before coming over to the NFL.

We take a look at this and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge as we enter the final weekend before training camp.
