Buffalo Bills rookies report to St. John Fisher College after four days, and veterans after a week.
With the first practice on July 26, the Bills are looking to get off to another successful start to the season — hopefully ending with a Super Bowl win in February.
The Bills worked to improve their offense. They signed guards Conor McGovern and David Edwards in the second round of the draft, along with Florida guard Osiris Torrance. They’ve picked tight end Dalton Kincaid in the first round of the draft and hope to add another layer to their passing game.
The Bills also signed free-agent wide receivers Deonte Harty and Trent Sherfield, as well as running back Damien Harris.
Harris will join a backfield that includes second-year running back James Cook and veteran Nyheim Hines, who was traded last November.
Hines has become a Buffalo fan favorite. He’s not only thanks to his two kickoff returns that scored touchdowns in the regular-season finale against New England, but also his off-field performances in West New York.
Hines is a big music fan and said he wanted to start a rock band night at a Buffalo bar earlier this year. It seemed like enough fans were intrigued that it became a reality.
Hines tweeted on Thursday that it is happening and details will be announced soon.
This will allow Bills players and fans to connect through their love of music. Hines has been great for the Bills both off and on the field. He thinks he’ll be the main returner of punts and kicks in 2023 while getting snaps that give Cook and Harris a rest in the backfield.
