Orchard Park, N.Y. — When it comes to commanding and running the Buffalo Bills offense, quarterback Josh Allen shows up every day and looks like a superstar.

Allen finished second in MVP voting in 2020. When NFL experts are talking great NFL quarterbacks, omitting Allen’s name just simply can’t happen. Through the first two days of training camp, Allen has been dialed in and making throws that are turning heads of his own teammates – especially new wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

Sanders stood up in front of the team at one point during spring practices and shot from the hip. He’s not a big talker but his words, which he said came from his heart, impacted his new teammates.

“I told them about myself. Sometimes you’ll go a whole year and you won’t even know anything about a guy,” Sanders said. “I made myself vulnerable. I told them about my family, about my kids, my wife. I told them about where I’m from, how I was raised and then I talked about my career – and then I told them why I came here, why I chose Buffalo.”

Sanders has been showcased during the first two games of training camp, getting a bunch of targets during team drills. He’s building chemistry with Josh Allen, who blew him away with a throw on Thursday.

Allen has marveled at Sanders’ attention to detail and how hard he works. When players reported they all had to go through conditioning tests. Veterans understandably usually coast, but not Sanders.

After capping the 2019 season with another first-round playoff exit, the Bills knew they had to do something bold to improve their offense.

They targeted wide receiver Stefon Diggs and made the Minnesota Vikings an offer they couldn’t refuse in a trade: Four draft picks over two seasons, including a first-rounder in 2020.

They received more than they ever could have imagined in return.

Not only was Diggs an instant fit, but he would go on to lead the NFL with 127 receptions and 1,535 yards, helping quarterback Josh Allen explode onto the scene as a bona fide MVP candidate.

What’s more, the Bills would be first-round playoff losers no more. They rode the Allen-Diggs train all the way to the AFC Championship Game to set the tone for this coming season, which essentially begins with the first practice of training camp on Wednesday.

The Buffalo Bills are driven by ambition and I’m confident in their ability to not only make it to the playoffs but to the Super Bowl. Everybody has good intentions and energy as well as performed well in the training camp Go Bills!!!
