Bills Report To Fisher Energized

It may be the most anticipated Bills training camp since the team moved their summer practices to Pittsford, but you wouldn’t know it on voluntary move-in day. About a dozen guys checked into the dorms on Wednesday. Everybody has to be at Fisher on Thursday. The goal for the beginning camp is to treat it like a marathon not a sprint.

“It’s awesome that the fans are excited, but from our perspective, we have a long way to go,” Bills center Eric Wood said. “It’s just the start of training camp. We’ve got a ton of work to do before we start talking about expectatoins or anything.”

“Everybody is buy tickets and everybody has that Super Bowl thing on us,” wide receiver Sammy Watkins said. “We got to come out and win it Friday in (the first) practice, we got to start it up. We’re just not going to go out there and win games just because we are experienced players. It starts in the preseason and training camp.”

“I think you look around at some of the players we’ve added, obviously a change of pace in the head man, each one of them is different I would say,” defensive tackle Kyle Williams said. “Even when you have the same coach and same staff, but you’re always adding or subtracting players.”

Two of the first guys to move in Williams and Wood. The longtime vets weren’t in town to get a jump on hitting the film room or weights. They had something else in mind: golf at Oak Hill Country Club. Who’s the better player? “Oh, Kyle will beat me,” Wood said. 

On a hot day with no practice, it’s hard to blame the Bills vets looking for a little recreation before the hard work of making good on expectations begins.
