A quiet day at One Bills Drive as we round out the month of March. Free Agency winds down as we approach the NFL Draft, now just four weeks away. With plenty of offseason additions already, we asked the listeners their thoughts on the talent pool on the Bills roster and where they may rank in the NFL? Plenty of responses throughout the night.
On that topic, we decided to reach out to former NFL quarterback and now Bleacher Report NFL analyst Chris Simms. In the site’s recent videocast on BleacherReport.com, Simms discussed why he thinks the Bills might just have the most talented roster in the NFL. He also said that the Bills are ready to contend and could be a 2015 playoff sleeper.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that they can contend. We need just average quarterback play. That’s all you’re really going to need with this team because I do expect you guys to be able to run the football with the running backs and the talent on the line. Some of the explosiveness at wide receiver and I have zero question about your defense. Your defense is going to keep you in every game.”
We were then joined by Bills tight end MarQueis Gray who is looking forward to his return for his second season in Buffalo. Gray returns with the rest of his teammates next week for voluntary offseason workouts. He discussed his anticipated role in 2015 and the addition of Charles Clay to the tight end group.
“He is very athletic. He’s a great tight end. He’s a great pass catcher also. He’s got both of those traits and I feel like our whole tight end room has just gotten better with him being a part of our Bills.”
Rounding out the show we took a listen back to an interview we did with Bills head trainer Bud Carpenter as his staff was recently awarded as the NFL’s top athletic training staff in 2014. With March being National Athletic Training Month we thought it was fitting to listen back to the Bills staff’s reaction to the honor.
