Happy official opening day of Buffalo Bills training camp! As the team prepares for this most unusual of training camps at their facilities in Orchard Park, N.Y., today’s edition of the Bills daily links takes a crack at projecting the team’s 53-man roster, looking for which players will be on the outside looking in when the 2020 season begins.

The Bills, like the other 31 NFL teams, face some difficult decisions as they work to trim their rosters down to the NFL maximum of 80, and Buffalo started that process by releasing a pair of players Monday. We also highlight which two Bills joined quarterback Josh Allen on the NFL’s annual Top 100 players list heading into the 2020 season, examine whether Allen’s development heading into his third year as a starter will be hurt by a virtual offseason, dissect what Allen needs to do to continue his growth as Buffalo’s starting quarterback, go in depth with a scouting report on Buffalo’s starting tight end, Dawson Knox, and much more!
