In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills links, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly shares why he feels the 2020 Bills bringing in Stefon Diggs reminds him of when his Bills added James Lofton before the 1989 season as the missing piece for their run to four straight Super Bowls. We continue to hand out grades following the initial wave of free agency, examine why the Bills possess the best group of receivers in the AFC, address the re-signing of versatile receiver Isaiah McKenzie, and discuss why, despite opposition from the owners, the NFL Draft will go on as scheduled (for now) amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
