Bills ready to start mini-camp
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - One more set of off-season workouts ahead for the Bills with mini-camp running from Tuesday through Thursday this week at the team's facility.
Having already put in three weeks of well attended organized team activities, this week practice is mandatory for all players. Mini-camps in the NFL not as demanding as they once were, the team still plans to get plenty of work done before breaking until training camp begins at the end of July.
"Still one practice a day, it's not the old days of two-a-days in mini-camp," head coach Chan Gailey said. "The only difference is that they can stay at the facility longer. We've got some mandatory meetings with security and media and things like that we have to get done with our players during mini-camp. So we'll use the extra time for things like that."
"The day is a little bit longer but since we don’t have any pads it’s pretty much the same," said linebacker Shawne Merriman. "I’m sure we’ll get a little bit more detailed during the mini-camps to get ready for a good off-season."
