The Buffalo Bills are finally on the field together at the same time. Following rookie minicamp last weekend, the team moved into the final phase of OTAs on Tuesday and continues this week.
Ten practices are allowed during Phase Three and for the first time, team drills are allowed. In phase one, only workouts and meetings are allowed. In phase two, field work without opponents is permitted. Phase three ushers in the ability to work with actual opponents on the field. Practices involving 11-on-11 and 7-on-7 are now permitted but no individual matchups. Helmets and knee/elbow pads are permitted but there is to be no contact.
OTAs will finish up prior to Buffalo’s mandatory minicamp running from June 13 to 15.
According to The Buffalo News, media will be allowed into practice this Thursday with the chance to speak with assistant coaches following practice. It will be the first time they speak with the media since joining the Bills.
