As our nation takes time this Memorial Day to remember and honor those brave men and women who died while serving in the military, let us also commemorate the life of Bob Kalsu, the Buffalo Bills offensive lineman who lost his life serving in the United States Army in Vietnam.

In today’s edition of the Bills daily links, we watch how the Bills honored veterans through a virtual honor flight, hear why Quinton Jefferson decided to sign with the Bills (and how his versatility will boost an already talented defensive line), discuss the good news that Governor Cuomo is encouraging all professional sports teams to begin their training camps as soon as possible, hear about running back Devin Singletary’s unique routine for preparing for year two in the NFL, and much more!
