News & Notes from Day 4 of Buffalo Bills Training Camp

While you hate to be repetitive, the constant talk of Sammy Watkins at Buffalo Bills training camp is without a doubt, well deserved. Watkins once again put on a show today, making a spectacular one-handed grab in the end zone after losing his footing.

WGR’s Sal Capaccio caught it all on tape for fans to admire as well. Check out the video below.

While the catch itself is sure to electrify the Bills faithful, it has really just become the normal from rookie Sammy Watkins. Since camp has opened up, Watkins has made play, after play, after play; and has really opened up the coaches’ eyes to what seems like an endless talent. Bills head coach Doug Marrone even said that,

“after trading up to get Watkins, you have expectations …  and he has exceeded those.”

Marrone’s high praise of Watkins may be surprising to some, when you often see how much of a tough coach he can be to please at times.

In non-Sammy Watkins related news, the Bills received some positive news today as defensive tackles Marcell Dareus and Alan Branch were spotted on the practice field rehabbing today. Both players remain on the active/non-football list. But with the Bills on break until Friday, we might finally get our first glimpses of both players then.

While players are finally settling into camp, the most noteworthy storyline of today – aside from Sammy Watkins – is the positional battle developing along the offensive line.

Erik Pears appears to be winning the battle at right tackle over rookie Cyrus Kouandjio. Left tackle remains open with Cordy Glenn banged up. But right guard might be the most intriguing matchup, as head coach Doug Marrone described the position as “up for grabs” today.

While Marrone’s take on the offensive line was interesting to say the least, here is a list of other compelling quotes the Bills head coach delivered today.

With the Bills having a day off tomorrow, fans can take the chance to catch up on the first few days of practice and go through all of their favourite moments from the early parts of training camp.
