Bills Complete OTA Week 1
OTA Wraps: The Bills wrapped up week one of their organized team activities yesterday. Players hit the practice field for three days and will resume the OTAs on Tuesday of next week for three more days. They also hit the field for three days of workouts the week of June 5th before having a mandatory minicamp the following week. 11 veterans were missing from the final practice that was reportedly dominated by the defense. Dick Jauron feels a lot is being accomplished although he wishes more veterans were in attendance. Their absences has given the young players more time on the field.
