The Buffalo Bills are conducting their first full-team practices of the spring this week in the form of voluntary organized team activities. Yesterday's announcement regarding Buddy Nix and the now-vacant GM post put some of the OTA rhetoric on the back burner, but it was back in full force on Tuesday.
80 of the 90 Bills players are there - those missing include veteran safety Jairus Byrd and rookies whose colleges have not yet graduated this year's class - and Buffalo's new coaching staff is emphasizing tempo as they begin installing brand new offensive and defensive schemes for the 2013 season.
These past two days have been the first opportunity for the team's 2013 draft class and undrafted free agents to practice alongside the veteran players on the roster; most of the focus has been spent on the quarterback trio of E.J. Manuel, Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson. USA Today was on the scene on Tuesday and took some great photos from One Bills Drive, which you can see in the gallery above.
