"A guy that has strong hands, was able to display that in a couple one-on-one periods and in team periods. Just a natural catcher in traffic, so definitely excited to have him a part of this team.'

Buffalo News reports: 'Today went well for a first day, but I’ve been doing this for quite some time now. You don’t put too much into that first day as far as knowing everything.

You have to learn everything and I’m still in that process so I’m still learning, still studying, doing extra meetings with my position coach – just trying to get caught up as much as possible.'

Marker With good reason, Bills feeling emboldened by Boldin [1:50 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Could Boldin be the one making those two to three plays in a game that make the difference between winning and losing? That when you add them up, give the Bills the one to two wins they’ve been lacking for so long? The difference between 8-8 and 10-6?'

Marker Bills CB Shareece Wright broke his neck in college, yet almost played the next week [1:49 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“It was the craziest, weirdest feeling I ever had in my life,” said Wright. “I stood up and I was out of it, wasn’t sure what happened, and I couldn’t really feel the right side of my body. I tried to grab my mouth piece with my right hand and it fell out of my hand.”'

Marker Bills fans grumbling about lack of action on main practice field at Fisher [1:48 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Everyone would like to have a better chance to view them,” she said. “When you’re here on the little field, you can’t see them at all. There were so many people in the stands, and they realized most of the practice was going to be here, so they all had to move and there’s not a lot of places to see them here.”'

Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Anquan Boldin wasted no time making his presence felt. He was working with the first and second teams during team drills and caught a few passes from Tyrod Taylor. His route running, physicality and hands will help him stay productive in the league. He already was gathering the receivers after practice, so he hasn't been shy about establishing himself as a leader, either.'

Marker Anquan Boldin says he joined Buffalo Bills to win a championship [1:44 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I don't think I have anything to prove, but for me it's about leaving a legacy," Boldin told reporters at training camp. "You want to be in control of your legacy at the end of the day, how things play out. I think that's where I am in my career. I'm also playing to win another championship. That's the reason I play this game. That's the reason I'm here, to try to win a championship."'

Marker Eddie Yarbrough's play 'continues to trend upward' in Buffalo Bills' defense [1:43 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"You know what? I personally didn't know as much as I do now obviously," McDermott said. "Coach Waufle had some experience or awareness of Eddie from college. I'll just tell you, he's one of the nice surprises, not a surprise, but he continues to trend upward. And we're looking for depth along our defensive line and he's done a nice job. He plays extremely hard, he's intelligent, one of the first ones in the team meeting room in the morning. [Always] working on his craft. There's a reason he's been successful. He's done a nice job. He really has. Credit to Eddie and also to the defensive line coaching."'

Marker Anquan in the house, 5 observations from Day 11 of Buffalo Bills training camp [1:42 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Boldin made his presence felt early in his Buffalo career while going about his business.

Marker Boldin a perfect fit for the Bills [1:39 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'When it comes to the kind of player Sean McDermott/Brandon Beane are looking for, Boldin checks everything on their list. McDermott talks about accountability, reliability, durability and availability. Boldin is all of that and more. He is still productive on the field, coming off an eight-touchdown season at Detroit in 2016. But he also brings leadership and a strong work ethic to a fairly young group of receivers. I’m sure the Bills are hoping Boldin will rub off on guys like Watkins and Jones.'

Marker Bills' White can't wait for his first game [1:38 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I’ve been around a lot of teams and this is one of those teams where I can feel the togetherness and the cohesiveness. This team has got some grit about it coach McDermott has been doing a great job of preaching family and we’re really living it, not just saying it.”'

WGR-AM reports: '“This guy embodies the culture we’re looking for out of our team,” Beane said with Howard Simon and Jeremy White live from Bills training camp on Tuesday morning. “Right now it’s a one-year deal, but I think the benefits will pay off for the younger guys on our team.”'

Marker Boldin doesn't miss a beat in Bills' practice debut [1:36 AM]

Marker Joe B: 7 Buffalo Bills training camp observations, Day 11 (8/8/17) [1:34 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Well, that didn’t take long. Anquan Boldin hasn’t had more than a day-and-a-half, if that, to be in the playbook and study Rick Dennison’s offensive scheme, but that didn’t stop him from taking as many first-team reps as he could.'

Marker Yarbrough making his presence felt [1:33 AM] reports: '“He’s continued to trend upward. We’re looking for depth along our defensive line and he’s done a nice job,” said head coach Sean McDermott of Yarbrough. “He plays extremely hard, he’s intelligent, one of the first in the team meeting room in the morning, working on his craft. There’s a reason he’s been successful.”'

Marker Top 3 things to know from Day 11 at Bills Camp [1:32 AM] reports: '“He’s a playmaker,” said Taylor. “When you add a playmaker to your offense and team, you’re definitely excited to see what he could do. I’ve been around him, some of the guys have seen him, I know him. To see his attitude, coming in on day one, wanting to work, wanting to show guys what he’s here for, it definitely brings a different mentality to the team. From an offensive standpoint, we’re just excited to have him on board. We know he brings another aspect to our game that can make us even more dangerous. From a team standpoint, just the leadership that we need on this team.”'

Marker U.K. based player & coach Phoebe Schecter settling into Bills defensive coaching internship [1:31 AM] reports: ' “I moved over to England about five years ago, and I’d seen an ad on Facebook to come try out for American football, and I thought it would be a really good way to meet people and get a bit of American culture in,” Schecter said. “I went to the try outs, and absolutely fell in love. I’ve never looked back since.”'

Marker Bills Today: Darby doing extra [1:30 AM] reports: '“When you have free time you have to use it to work on the little things. I can’t say I’m going to do it and then after practice just run inside and expect to catch more,” said Darby. “When I’ve got free time I throw the tennis ball off the wall and catch it, just working on my hand-eye (coordination). The key is just looking it in once you get your hands on it. So you’ve got to find the time to do it.”'

Buffalo News reports: '"He understands what we want done," Dennison said Monday, before the Bills' 10th practice of training camp at St. John Fisher College. "It's just keeping him on the same page, listening to his feet, getting the ball out on time. That's the biggest thing for (us) working on it.'

Marker What does Rick Dennison expect from his offense in first preseason game? [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Each has their own individual challenges as well, starting with Taylor, who has vowed to make smarter decisions in the pocket rather than honing in on his scrambling prowess. McCoy, the team's best player at 29, is tasked with bucking the trend of running backs experiencing a decline at his age. Watkins will be watched with a hawk's eye by everyone inside and outside program to see if health allows the No. 1 receiver to gel with his quarterback.'
