Anybody know when training camp opens?

It's like a week or two before the first preseason game so like the end of July or beginning of August

@SalSports

Biggest takeaways from McDermott presser: Charles Clay's knee is gonna be a recurring theme all year and they're signing LB Gerald Hodges.

Wonder if the Clay knee bit is in the interest of making Buffalo more attractive option for Barnidge.

Third straight practice that I've seen that RB Cedric O'Neal has looked pretty quick and explosive. #Bills

Joe B: 7 observations from Bills OTAs (5/25/17): 

http://www.wkbw.com/...as-week-2-52517

 

I found this one interesting:

 

4) Dawkins hanging at only left tackle for now

- The last two times we've seen the Bills at practice, rookie Dion Dawkins has lined up at left tackle in place of the still rehabbing Cordy Glenn. With Glenn still unable to take part in team drills Thursday, that trend continued once again... but to this point in time, we haven't seen him take a single rep at right tackle -- which was the position he was drafted to compete for. Head coach Sean McDermott didn't give much of an indication as to when, or if, Dawkins would be sliding over to the right side for some work, only saying that he likes that the rookie has the versatility to play both sides. In the meantime, Jordan Mills continued to take all of the first-team reps at right tackle with Dawkins on the left side. While Dawkins is losing out on some reps on that side, he is going against Jerry Hughes every single practice for multiple plays, and Hughes is one of the best practice players I've seen since starting to cover the team in 2009. Dawkins is learning pretty quickly about the speed of the game, which will help when he makes the likely eventual move over to the right side for the competition -- once Glenn is healthy.

 

Not sure how I feel about this.  Don't think Dawkins has ever played RT, so I'd think the more practice he gets at that position, the better.  But, I'd have to assume our coaches know more about this stuff than I do.

It does seem like something that would be worth mentioning, right?  Oh, Joe B...
