On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, host John Boccacino and co-host Jamie D’Amico take a look at how the Buffalo Bills are dealing with the racial unrest happening around the country.

Head coach Sean McDermott started a dialogue with his team around the racial protests occurring across the world over the killing of George Floyd. Assistant head coach/defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier shared his personal stories of dealing with racism and bias.

McDermott, Frazier and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll have emphasized the importance of keeping the lines of communication open among players and coaches. The team is using this watershed moment as an educational opportunity, giving the players a voice to express their thoughts and frustrations over the current state of affairs.

Our podcast also goes into rookie quarterback Jake Fromm’s racist texts, what Fromm can do to earn back teammates’ trust, and how the Bills giving Fromm a second chance falls in line with how the team has handled past player conduct issues.
