Its Brohm vs Edwards

Standard

The opening of Buffalo Bills training camp is quickly approaching and with Bills head coach Chan Gailey yet to name the starter for training camp rumors are running rampant.

If this latest rumor is true it will come down to Edwards and Brohm in training camp for the starting quarterback position.

According to Pro Football Weekly, via Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com, Edwards will most likely be named the starter at the opening  of training camp with him and Brohm battling it for the starter position.

As for fellow quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick the team views him nothing more than a solid backup.

The Bills want to give Brohm a legitimate chance to win the starters position and could do just that if he continues to perform.

In the end, my money is on Brohm as he is the more talented of the  two and looks like he is starting to put things together.

Some hope for Bills fans

Standard

The Buffalo Bills announced today  that they reached a deal with their third round draft pick defensive end Alex Carrington.

That means there is some hope for Bills fans that they could have all their draft picks signed on time.

The Bills now have seven of their nine draft picks signed with only first round draft pick running back CJ Spiller and second round pick nose tackle Torell Troupe.

Fortunately, the Bills start later than a dozen teams, which means that at the very least Troupe’s deal will be done since their is less money and years involved.

I am not optimistic about Spiller considering the amount of money that is involved, along with the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement.

However, Spiller would be a role player this year as in a third down back and obvious passing situations, along with kickoff return duties.

Troupe is the more important pick to get done as he could potentially be a starter right away.

In the end, considering their track record with draft picks if Spiller isn’t in on time he will be in very shortly there after.
