Rookie Minicamp Starts; Free Agent Guard Visits
The coaches get a first look at the seven drafted players, 14 undrafted free agent signees, and many tryout players as the mandatory rookie minicamp gets underway at One Bills Drive today. The three day camp goes through the weekend. The team is also busy entertaining their first post draft free agent visit as former Bears and Jets guard Matt Slauson is in town after visiting with San Diego earlier in the week. Slauson played for Rex Ryan in New York and Bills OL Coach Aaron Kromer for two years in Chicago. Even though he has played guard is entire career there are reports the Bills may want to look at him as a right tackle if he signs with the team. The Bills have purchased some land adjacent to Ralph Wilson Stadium to build a new grass practice field that was requested by Rex Ryan. It is expected to be complete next April. The Bills campus is smaller than most in the league so buying more land brings them closer to the NFL norm. In other news, the NFL Network started revealing their top 100 players last night as they took a look at players listed #100 to #91. There were two Bills in the 90s list. Richie Incognito came in at #97 followed by Sammy Watkins at #96. The list is voted on by the players themselves. Neither player was on the list last year. The NFL Network will reveal the whole list 10 at a time each Wednesday at 8pm. The Bills have signed Cordy Glenn to a five year contract. The team had placed the franchise tag on him and now get it back to use on another free agent next year if needed. That could come in handy with Stephon Gilmore and Tyrod Taylor in the last year of their deals. Doug Whaley said on WGR yesterday now that the draft is over he would work on getting extensions done with all three of them. Glenn was the most pressing since they only had until July 15th to lock him up. Gilmore and Taylor are tied to the Bills for another year. More...
