The Buffalo Bills Make Impressive Moves On Friday
The Buffalo Bills have completed all of the important off-season events. Those being the NFL Scouting Combine, pro days, the height of NFL free agency, The NFL Draft, and the schedule release, which happened last night.
Now, it will be pretty much nothing but off-season workouts and mini camps before the start of training camp, which looks to be on July 23rd.
The Bills rookie mini camp begins on Friday, which will give the Buffalo media its first look at the drafted rookies and undrafted rookies up close; head coach Sean McDermott will speak to the media at noon.
The Bills will not have any rookies absent, either drafted or undrafted, as they have signed ALL of their rookies to contracts on Friday.
The team announced the move(s) on Friday morning.
This might seem like it's standard, but to get every rookie signed and ready to take the field before the first minicamp practice is very impressive. It's easier nowadays, because rookie contracts are mostly slated based on where they were picked. Before 2011, it was much more difficult to get rookies signed in time, but even now, it's not easy to get them all under contract before the start of rookie minicamp.
The Bills also have brought on Alonzo Dotson as a national scout, who according to The NFL Network's Tom Pelissaro, is one of the top rising names in the scouting world.
The Bills will play five prime time games in 2022 and that number could grow to as much as seven, based off their two flex games (week 15 vs. Miami and week 18 vs. New England).
