TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
  Here are a few players the Bills fans should watch! #88 Marquise Goodwin (WR) 5ft 9in 179lb from Texas was on the U.S. Olympic track team has been making some amazing deep catches during training camp sessions.  The other Wide-Receivers to watch- #11 T.J. Graham 3rd round pick in 2012 from NC State, #10 Robert Woods 2nd round pick in 2013 draft from USC, #17 DaRick Rogers an undrafted free agent from Tennessee State has looked very good at camp I am looking to see how DaRick does in the game versus the Colts. #14 Brandon Kaufman undrafted free agent from Eastern Washington struggled at the beginning of camp but has really turned things around in the last week he has been making some big catches in camp. Brandon could make the team either the 53 or the practice squad. #86 Terrell Sinkfeld undrafted free agent from Northern Iowa has an unofficial time of 4.19sp in the forty. He has the potential to turn into something special. #81 Marcus Easley was drafted out of U Conn is a very talented player but has been injured the last two seasons hope he can stay healthy so we can see the talent that he can display. The Wide Receivers as a group are the most talented group I have seen on the Buffalo Bills roster in over ten years. Tight ends #87 Nick Provo an undrafted free agent from Syracuse was brought in by current Head Coach Doug Marrone. #3 E.J. Manuel (QB) the first round pick 16th overall in the 2013 draft from Florida State. E.J. has struggled at the start of training camp sessions but turns things around towards the end of the session. He look like the real deal the fans if he starts the season are going to need to be patient with him in his first season fans should look toward the 2014 season when the Bills will have a real shot at making the playoffs. #8 Jeff Tuel (QB) undrafted free agent from Washington State has been very impressive so far in camp. #42 Kendell Gaskins (RB) undrafted free agent from Richmond could push #20 Tashard Choice for the 3rd running-back position. A few defensive players to watch are #50 Kiko Alonso drafted in 2013 out of Oregon.  Could make what was a sub-par group last year into one that can make some plays opposing teams will have to game plan against Kiko Alonso. The other players to watch #27 Duke Williams drafted in the 2013 draft a safety out of Nevada and another safety drafted in the 2013 draft #36 Jonathan Meeks out of Clemson.

E.J. Manuel, Bills have strong outing against the Colts

The Buffalo Bills have moved on from their brief and highly unsuccessful Ryan Fitzpatrick era, but there have been a lot of questions about E.J.
