The Buffalo Bills came just short of a Super Bowl appearance in 2020. With improvements made around the roster, bringing a Lombardi trophy back to Buffalo is surely the goal in 2021. With OTAs getting underway, there are a lot of things that need to be taken care of ahead of training camp.

Position battles, to new plays, to acclimating the new guys are all on the list, but head coach Sean McDermott has one other huge concern – getting his players vaccinated.

Players who are not vaccinated will be subject to stricter protocols, making it more difficult for the team to have meaningful in-person meetings as well as potentially jeopardizing the possibility of holding its traditional training camp outside of Rochester, NY.

While McDermott and quarterback Josh Allen both admitted getting the COVID-19 vaccine is ultimately a personal choice, McDermott stressed the professional and health and safety responsibilities that go along with it as well.

The longer the Bills' players wait to get vaccinated the more in danger training camp becomes. And for a team looking to take that next step toward potentially hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, every meeting, practice and day together matters.
