Camp Coming Soon: The dog days of summer are in full swing as it is very quiet at One Bills Drive with training camp less than three weeks away. Players and coaches remain on vacation as they gear up for the start of training camp on July 24th. Some work needs to be done before camp starts as all eight draft picks need to be signed.
