Plus, what’s the holdup with contract extensions for White, Milano and Dawkins?

In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links, we know the Bills have an All-Pro cornerback occupying one side of the field in Tre’Davious White. But who will start opposite White, and what kind of depth do the Bills have with their defensive backs?

We also examine the Bills’ special teams unit to see why this area should take another step forward this year, go inside how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the development of rookie defensive end A.J. Epenesa, explore what fans can expect from starting quarterback Josh Allen as he enters his third year as the team’s starting quarterback, and much more!
