The Bills offseason never lacked in surprises. From the moment they walked off the field in Foxborough in Week 17 last December, they have dominated the headlines.
So many things happened between Kyle Orton’s retirement and the naming of Tyrod Taylor as the starting quarterback.
Doug Marrone quit, Bill Polian turned them down, Rex Ryan was hired. The Bills signed Richie Incognito, Percy Harvin, Tyrod Taylor and Charles Clay. They traded for LeSean McCoy and Matt Cassel. They also re-signed Jerry Hughes.
McCoy claimed Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was racist and Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer was arrested for misdemeanor battery.
And then the Bills reported to training camp.
Once at St. John Fisher, Shady McCoy was shady, Kromer returned, Jim Kelly wore Yeezy’s, and dog biscuits were eaten by Rex Ryan, Terry Pegula, and Marcell Dareus.
Cassel started the first Bills preseason game.
IK Enemkpali punched Jets QB Geno Smith in the face, then was signed by the Bills.
The Bills and Browns held two joint-practices at Fisher, McCoy injured his hamstring on the second night.
Taylor started the second Bills preseason game.
Marcell Dareus said he was unhappy with contract talks. The Bills announced 60,000 season tickets.
And then the Bills left training camp.
EJ Manuel started the third Bills preseason game.
Rex Ryan says he a QB problem, Fred Jackson was cut and then immediately Tyrod Taylor is named the starting quarterback.
We couldn’t get the rights to “We Didn’t Start the Fire” by Billy Joel, but just know that we thought about it.
