[BN] Blitz newsletter: Focus for Bills linemen is 'mauling the guy out of his stance'

Wyatt Teller started seven games at guard during his rookie season. But he knows the departure of offensive line coach Juan Castillo and the addition of numerous linemen means nothing should be taken for granted.

Teller worked at both guard positions during spring practices as well as center, but didn't let his thoughts drift to what the starting lineup could look like for Week 1.

"Just from my viewpoint, it's a rep chart, not a depth chart," Teller said of spring practices. "The last time I checked, we're not playing this Sunday. We've got two months to go. There's so much to think about. If you're focusing on that, who's going to start game one, then you're already in the wrong mindset. So the best thing I can say is just keep it day-by-day and play-by-play and whatever happens, happens."

Teller also shared how the philosophy of the offensive line has changed under new position coach Bobby Johnson.

"The biggest thing with Coach Castillo was him saying, 'Over and over, until it becomes natural.' Coach Johnson, he's a mauler," Teller said. "That's what he's all about, really attacking the guy, really like mauling the guy out of his stance. There's a bunch of things that Bobby does well, but it's still (a matter of) learning his coaching style."

Bills propose a wedding at halftime of Patriots game: I once met two Bills fans who got married during a tailgate before a Bills-Patriots game. The bride was a Bills fan and the groom was a Patriots fan. The officiant literally asked during the ceremony, "Will you defend her as much as you defend Tom Brady?" It was an incredible scene. But the Bills are now taking this idea one step further after receiving feedback from fans: They're offering the opportunity to get married on the field at halftime of a game against the Patriots.
