1. How this Bills player is adjusting his workouts this offseason

The COVID-19 virus continues to impact the sports world whether teams are in-season or not. Right now during the NFL's offseason many players returned home and are training at private gyms. With recent orders to close down most gyms, many players have to find alternative methods to prepare for the NFL season.

One player is the Bills' Jordan Poyer.

"For me, our training facility where I go to, they closed that down and I'm down here in Florida and also you know a lot of stuff is closed down, down here. So you're kind of doing stuff on your own," Poyer said. "My brother's down here with me. He's training with me. I'm trying to get him right for a Canadian (CFL) workout he was supposed to have, so I've got him on the field every day and we're doing our daily drills and doing everything that we're supposed to be doing and just staying prepared."

As Poyer and many other Americans have found is that the coronavirus does not discriminate and impacts the daily lives of everyone. With a young daughter at home, Poyer is taking the precautions necessary.

"You know it is kind of weird times you go to the grocery store... we stocked about a week ago, but you go to the grocery store. You can't find water. You can't find the cleaning stuff. Everywhere it's crazy so you just try to stay ahead of it always washing hands and just kind of stay ahead of it," Poyer said.

Other Bills players have joined in to spreading the message of staying safe and #StayHomeStayStrong.

2. Buffalo is named one of the most improved teams

Bleacher Report named the Buffalo Bills one of the most improved teams after the first week of free agency.

If there is one thing we have learned about the Bills this offseason, it's that they smell blood in the AFC East. With Tom Brady out of New England, the Bills seem to believe they could dethrone the Patriots in 2020.

Their biggest move was trading for former Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs. While they had to give up the No. 22 pick and a few others to acquire Diggs, a No. 1 receiver was the team's biggest need. Diggs is just 26 and has posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. He's widely regarded as one of the NFL's best route-runners and should be a perfect fit with quarterback Josh Allen. His presence should also help free up receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley.

The Bills also added versatile defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson, Vernon Butler, Mario Addison, Josh Norman and A.J. Klein.

Buffalo still has seven picks in the 2020 draft and not many roster holes. Look for the Bills to be a legit AFC contender next season.

3. NBC's Sunday Night Football declares Bills fans No. 1 in the NFL

Is anyone shocked by this? Time and again Bills fans prove they are the best fans in the NFL. This weekend they were named the best after a series of polls conducted on Sunday Night Football on NBC's Instagram account.

On their path to victory the Bills beat the Dolphins in the opening round, then the Patriots, the Chiefs, and the Steelers in the AFC finals to advance to the Super Bowl of fan votes against the Green Bay Packers.

Riding a wave of momentum the Bills soundly defeated the cheesehead faithful making everyone know that you're in Bills country.
