Bills' Sammy Watkins: Says he's ready, staff will decide
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Watkins says his surgically repaired foot is ready for anything, BuffaloBills.com reports. He's doing full workouts with little in the way of limitations, but still says he needs to gain confidence with his speed cuts, especially when cutting left and putting torque on the repaired left foot. "That's something I'm not comfortable with," said the third-year receiver. "I can do any other route except that route. I'm just kind of tense about it. My foot is tense about it."

Even though the Bills are one of the most run-oriented teams in the league, the passing game goes through Watkins and there was a stretch last season where he was within earshot of the Antonio Browns of the league. He hasn't proved he can stay healthy enough or avoid periods of inconsistency where he's a cream-of-the-crop fantasy guy, but he's not that far off either. It'll be worth watching to see how quickly the staff incorporates him into training camp practices, but so far, so good in the recovery and we wouldn't knock him down too much from where he stood pre-injury.

Bills' Stephon Gilmore: Will report to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmore will report to training camp despite his desire for a new long-term contract, WKBW Buffalo reports.

Gilmore is currently entering the final year of his 2012 first-round rookie contract and skipped Buffalo's OTAs while negotiating a new deal. Although he's yet to reach an agreement with the Bills, Gilmore will still report for camp and hope for the best. Recently cleared following offseason shoulder surgery, Gilmore is coming off a career-best 18 passes defended and three interceptions in just 12 games played last season, and along with rising second-year player Ronald Darby, comprises half of a Bills starting cornerback duo that boasts intriguing long-term potential.

Bills' Kolby Listenbee: Ready to show off his speed
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Listenbee, the team's sixth-round pick in April who missed most of the team's spring work due to pelvic inflammation following double sports hernia surgery in March, is hoping to be cleared for upcoming training camp practices, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Rehab is going pretty good," said the rookie. "We're playing it by ear so every day is a different day. Hopefully I get better soon and I can practice the first day, but we'll see how it goes."

Listenbee is an absolute burner, but given the team's plethora of wideouts in camp, he's still going to need to make a good impression on coach Rex Ryan in order to land a spot on the team.

Bills' Preston Brown: Bigger things in store?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The team expects Brown to be a main defensive playmaker this season as the staring middle linebacker who should see the field almost every play, BuffaloBills.com reports. "This Preston Brown is going to be a star," new defensive assistant Rob Ryan said. "He's been fantastic. He's a vocal guy, he's extremely smart. He knows the defense. He knows the ins and outs now, so he's really going to grow in this system."

The Bills expect to bounce back from a disappointing season on defense - Brown, like many of his teammates struggled with Rex Ryan's scheme - now that everyone has a better understanding of the system and players won't be pulling in so many different directions. Brown actually had 120 tackles last season after putting up 109 as a rookie, so if he can "get it" just a little more after being out of position on occasion at times last season, it could make for a very nice IDP season.

Bills' Marcus Easley: End of a long road?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Easley, who shattered his knee cap in three places during Week 16, is mostly recovered and is hoping to be on the field for at least part of training camp, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Based on the original prognosis they said six to nine months, so we're getting close to that point," said Easley. "So it'll be interesting to see where I stand in a couple of weeks. I feel that will determine where things go."

As bad as the injury was, doctors are saying Easley's repaired knee is structurally sound. He's arguably the team's best special teams player, so if he can prove just a hint of receiving value in camp he's got a shot to land the final receiver spot. We'll note that the team will have a slew of candidates in camp, however.
