The second week of OTAs kicked off on Tuesday. One player given some increased reps throughout the practices is free agent acquisition, Anthony Dixon. Dixon signed on with the Bills back in March as and is now getting his share of touches within a heavy filled Bills backfield. Dixon is excited to be included after not getting much playing time in San Francisco.
“It was one of the most frustrating things I’ve ever went through, knowing I had the talent to be out there, knowing I was capable of doing it but never really got out there for an extended time. I feel like I’m a great route runner. I feel like I have good hands and I just want a chance to prove that. I know some people might think I’m crazy for saying I’m one of the best in the league but I really do think that and with the opportunity I know I can show that.”
Dixon says he can also fill in at fullback and play a versatile role on special teams as well.
At the bottom of the second hour we were joined by Independent Health’s President and CEO Michael W. Cropp, M.D. On Tuesday the Bills announced that Independent Health will lead the way in promoting healthy behaviors in Western New York. Select Bills players joined over 100 kids from Buffalo Public School #18 to run through fitness drills. Dr. Cropp expressed the importance of having the Bills players relay a positive example of healthy living.
“These kids will go back to school and think about making commitments to taking care of themselves, to be physically active, and to eat right. Part of the reward system will be their opportunity to have more interactions like today.”
We also looked back on an interview we did in March with author Travis Vogan. Vogan’s book “Keepers of the Flame” describes how NFL Films changed the way we watch NFL games and how it rose to become part of American pop culture.
