Interview with Rhodes. This is probably the most I've heard him talk since he was drafted.

That's a shame, he isn't making the roster for sure now.

Edit: Sorry for multiple posts, can't seem to delete at the moment.

NFL expanded the International Player Pathway program to eight teams for the 2018 season.

The program gives teams an extra practice squad slot for an international player. The four teams in the NFC South participated in the program last season, and they will be joined by the four teams in the AFC North this year.

I wonder why all teams don't participate, wouldn't it be an advantage to have an extra PS guy?

Was there any reason why he isnt going to PTA's? A lot may be changed on that line and he is our best lineman.

Posting here for obvious reasons:

Free agent OG Richie Incognito informed the Bills he will not retire before they granted his release on Monday.

No thanks. Seems like a head case.
"I'm done. That's it. It's been a long career. Went to the doctor. My liver and kidneys are shutting down. The stress is killing me. It's just about doing what's right. I just want to be in the Hall of Fame," Incognito said.

@BuffaloBillsPR That was a short lived retirement. See you Monday for off season program 🤣 #madeyalook
