PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) — Expectations are higher this year as the Buffalo Bills begin training camp at St. John Fisher, starting with second-year quarterback Josh Allen.
John Brown and Cole Beasley both began with the first-team offense. General Manager Brandon Beane brought both in to help bolster the offense.
All eyes were on Allen, including that of owner Terry Pegula and Head Coach Sean McDermott. After a 6-10 record last season, it could be easy to forget that in theory, the Bills probably needed to take a step back in order to take three steps forward. Remember Week One at Baltimore?
Allen did show enough down the stretch to both raise expectations and make the countdown to camp agonizing for fans.
Also of particular interest: the offensive line, with big free agent signing Mitch Morse anchoring the unit. Rookie Cody Ford began the day at right tackle, flanked by signee Jon Feliciano at right guard.
On the other side of Morse, acquisition Quinton Spain began at left guard alongside returnee and third-year pro Dion Dawkins at LT.
