Yeldon on the roster, but Senorise Perry has a shot to crack the roster due to his special teams play. Perry finished the 2018 season tied for sixth in the league in special teams tackles (9). If he sticks out on special teams this summer and adds value as a runner, Perry could claim the final running back spot on the roster.’
‘Third round draft pick Dawson Knox has already impressed in his first three weeks on the job. His speed is evident, and he’s displayed athleticism in the rookie workouts and OTAS. His quarterback, Josh Allen, had early praise for Knox’s familiarity with the playbook in the May practices.’
