The Buffalo Bills have completed three weeks of OTAs now and the most noteworthy thing we have been following is the rotation of starters and reserves. The media is only able to see one practice a week (Thursdays), so it’s possible the coaches are working in players when they are not there, this week was the first time we saw Ryan Groy lining up as the first-team center this offseason.
For the last two weeks, Russell Bodine has been taking first-team reps with Groy backing him up. Both players have roughly the same contract, so from the outside, it truly looks like an open competition.
The rest of the o-line has been consistent; Dion Dawkins at left tackle, Vlad Ducasse at left guard, John Miller at right guard, and Jordan Mills at right tackle. Rookie Wyatt Teller and veterans Marshall Newhouse and Connor McDermott haven’t been able to break through to the top unit.
At quarterback, the team has been rotating week-to-week with Nathan Peterman taking starting snaps in weeks 1 and 3 while AJ McCarron was under center during week 2. With Zay Jones out, there has been a rotation opposite Kelvin Benjamin, too, with Brandon Reilly stepping in this week.
