The latest edition of Four Downs has the excitement of training camp growing for fans of the Buffalo Bills. This week also highlights a can’t-miss interview with head coach Sean McDermott, a guest spot of mine on a recent Bills podcast, and more questions around a free agent who remains available this offseason.

Closer to Camp

You probably have seen the news already that Governor Andrew Cuomo announced earlier this week that pro sports teams can report to training camp in the state of New York. While this might be a small step towards a “new normal”, any word of training camp taking place is a huge positive for Bills fans everywhere. There are certainly more issues facing the country at this time, but any indication that the NFL season will take place is a welcomed distraction.

Pod of the Week

Each week I will try to highlight at least one podcast that I think is worth your time. This week I would suggest you give a listen to the latest episode of What’s Next? with Eric Wood. His special guest is none other than head coach Sean McDermott, who takes part in a candid interview. The podcast includes a wide array of topics including Michael Jordan, Josh Allen, and the coach’s dance moves.

One more pod featuring yours truly

While I usually feature just one podcast a week, I had to make an exception this time around. I had the opportunity to join Joe Marino for Locked on Bills earlier in the week, as we discussed a number of topics. Takeo Spikes, Terrell Owens, and Sammy Watkins all came up during the podcast, and I would encourage you to give it a listen.

Does Cam to the New England Patriots make too much sense?

Cam Newton is still in search of a new team, and the New England Patriots appear to be in need of a new quarterback. Despite what may seem like a no-brainer opportunity for Newton, it does not appear that this is a signing that will take place.

Former Patriot Rodney Harrison was on The Rich Eisen Show earlier this week, and shared that he feels Newton would have a perfect opportunity in New England. I am not one to speak for all Bills fans, but I have no interest in seeing Newton replace Tom Brady in New England.
