OTAs Begin Without Gilmore: The Bills begin organized team activities today which is also phase 3 of the offseason conditioning program. In this phase players will be coached on the field but no live contact is allowed. These workouts remain voluntary which means there will be no discipline for Stephon Gilmore who will not attend according to Ty Dunne of the Buffalo News. The report says the Bills and Gilmore's agent are working on a longterm deal. He is right now under the fifth year option and would earn $11 Million on that deal. He would make a lot more under a longterm deal and it would open up more cap space likely unless its front loaded. There are 10 OTA days in all. This week they will be on the field today, tomorrow, and Thursday. The only mandatory camp in the offseason is the minicamp that runs June 14th thru 16th.
