[BN] Blitz newsletter: Solving the 53-man roster puzzle

With the offseason program in the rearview mirror and training camp on the horizon, Jay Skurski looks even further ahead for his latest Inside the Bills feature, projecting what the 53-man roster could look like at the end of preseason.

"Competition for jobs at wide receiver and defensive end should be of particular interest during training camp at St. John Fisher College," Skurski writes.

As for the "surprise cut" candidates, Skurski's initial projection doesn't nominate anyone of note:

Earlier this spring ... I went with Peterman, figuring the Bills could decide to go with just two quarterbacks. After minicamp, however, I’d like to retract that. Peterman had a solid spring. So solid, in fact, he might have a slight edge in the competition with McCarron to be the starting quarterback.

Skurski's mailbag: Should fans be worried that Josh Allen hasn't signed his rookie contract yet? Who will return kickoffs and punts? Who is the favorite to win the starting center job?

Josh Allen attends U.S. Open: Buffalo's rookie quarterback joined fellow first-round NFL draft choice Sam Darnold of the New York Jets at the U.S. Open over the weekend at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. “Bills mafia is apparent,” Allen told the U.S. Golf Association website. “They’ve been coming up to me a little bit, not as much as the Jets fans.”
