Buffalo Bills: Top roster questions entering minicamp this week
Since the 2021 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have held rookie minicamps and then multiple weeks of voluntary organized team activities (OTA). While they have had a good turnout to this point, this week the Bills will be holding their only mandatory minicamp of the offseason.
This is going to be the first time the coaching staff and front office are going to be able to see every player, or almost every player, on their roster before training camp next month. While there won’t be any contact, this is still a good opportunity to evaluate the roster and any potential holes or needs that must be addressed between now and the start of training camp.
These are the top roster questions for the Buffalo Bills entering minicamp, starting with one of the more talked about positions this offseason.
Tight End – Do the Buffalo Bills add Zach Ertz?
This has been a question for a few months now and is one that doesn’t seem to want to go away. As of last week, it was being reported that the organization is still evaluating the position and still keeping an eye on Zach Ertz and his situation with the Eagles.
One of the things that could be holding up an Ertz trade is the hope that Dawson Knox continues to show improvement over his performance his first two years with the Bills. The former third round pick has been inconsistent but shown flashes that could continue to give the team hope that it would come together.
He recently talked about the work he had put in this offseason, including working with a hand-eye trainer. One of the areas Knox struggled was with drops and has 14 in his career but this additional work could help in this area.
The decision to trade for Zach Ertz could hinge on how Dawson Knox looks this week during minicamp.
