These are a few Buffalo Bills that would be impacted the most if the NFL decided to shorten the preseason this coming year.
As the NFL tries to navigate through this pandemic and discuss what the 2020 season may look like, there has been discussions between the NFL and NFLPA about potentially shortening the preseason, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. This proposal would have the Buffalo Bills preseason games drop from the currently scheduled four down to two.
The idea of shortening the preseason is not a new concept, and this was actually the last year teams were going to play four preseason games. Under the new CBA, the NFL was dropping down to three preseason games and making the fourth week a bye week.
While a shortened preseason does help the likelihood that the upcoming season start on time, it also does create some challenges for the Buffalo Bills coaches and players. This offseason there has been no offseason workouts and likely the first time they will be on the field will be training camp.
This doesn’t give the coaching staff as much time to work with players and evaluate their roster but it has a significant impact on players on the Bills. These are some of the players that would be impacted most if the NFL agreed to go down to two preseason games for the upcoming season.
