The question loomed around One Bills Drive if the Buffalo Bills would have rookie quarterback Josh Allen signed before the start of training camp on Thursday. Allen and the Bills answered that question with a “yes” as both sides came to terms in making the signing official. Not all of the news was positive on Wednesday as the Bills placed receiver Zay Jones on the non-football injury list. This off-season has been a struggle for Jones, and it will be interesting to see how long it will take for him to return to the field.

Today’s links also include updates on the quarterback competition, LeSean McCoy, new podcast episodes, and much more.
