Report: Bills On Target For Training Camp At Fisher

New, comments

With the end of the NFL lockout in sight (but not yet completely in focus), the Buffalo Bills are on track to begin training camp at St. John Fisher College in as soon as two weeks, per a report from the AP's John Wawrow.

A source close to the team tells Wawrow that, barring a breakdown in negotiations that would drastically alter the timeline of the start of the new league year, the Bills are set to open training camp at Fisher sometime between July 29 (two weeks from today) and August 2 (two weeks from this coming Tuesday).

Last week, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News spoke with a Fisher official who also relayed that plans were in place to open Bills training camp as usual.

As a point of reference, the Bills opened training camp last season on July 29 (which, last year, was a Thursday). That timeline would not lead to many problems in terms of seasonal preparation, but a maelstrom of player activity involving free agency (veteran or otherwise) could make it tricky for Buffalo's coaching staff to keep their positional body counts in check for a little while.
