We also learn about the Bills’ infectious disease emergency response plan as Buffalo becomes one of just eight franchises to have their IDER approved.

We analyze wide receiver Stefon Diggs to figure out what kind of impact he will make on the offense in 2020, identify six under-the-radar Bills to watch when training camp opens on July 28, dive into who will earn the starting cornerback role opposite All Pro Tre’Davious White, relive how the Bills managed to miss out on drafting Russell Wilson as their franchise quarterback because they misjudged his draft value, target ten possible training camp cut candidates, learn the latest about the charges facing defensive tackle Ed Oliver, and much more!
