Here's the Bills news of note for May 26th.
**1 - OTAs leave McDermott encouraged, not satisfied
The Bills are done with their second full week of the OTAs. While the team is still getting to know each other and improving in several areas, head coach Sean McDermott gave his assessment of where they are and where they still need to go.
"I believe that we made a lot of strides and the credit goes to the players and the coaches and really everybody here at [the] ADPRO Training Facility. This is a team effort. It's been that way since day one. It will continue to be that way," McDermott said. "We're improving in every part of what we do, not just the football part. I'm encouraged by that. I've seen it on a daily basis, I've seen it on the field, [which] is what you're asking about. The players are working extremely hard.
"We are sharpening our game, we're raising our game on a daily basis, and that said, we have a long way to go and we've got to stay with the foot on our gas pedal in every area."
**2 - Meet Bills new WR Rod Streater
The Bills recently signed veteran wide receiver, Rod Streater, to come in and compete for a roster spot. Streater started his career in 2012 where he went undrafted and was picked up by the Oakland Raiders and played there from 2012 to 2015.
Before coming to the NFL, Streater started his collegiate career at Alfred State University in upstate New York. He appeared on the John Murphy Show yesterday to talk about his time there.
"I was up at Alfred State for about two years so I know the area and I love it up here. It's a little cold but you know, I can get used to that." Streater said.
The wide receiver played at Alfred State for two years before transferring to Temple University to finish out his college education.
Streater's most productive season as a wide receiver came in 2013 with the Raiders where he caught 60 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns.
While Streater will have to earn his role on this Bills roster, something that the coaches and general manager have been emphasizing, he does have experience on the special teams unit as well.
"I'm going on year six and I have experience, obviously. I just want to come in and make plays wherever I fit in," Streater said. "Whether its special teams, last year I did a great job with the 49ers playing special teams. However they want to fit me in, I'm just here to make plays and help this team win. That's our mindset is to win, right now."
3 - LeSean McCoy hosting charity event
Bills running back LeSean McCoy and his organization, the LeSean McCoy Foundation, are holding their annual charity softball game at Frontier Field in Rochester, NY. The game is scheduled for June 4th, 2017 at 2 PM.
"This is my fifth annual charity softball game. I do it for ALS. My grandmother passed away a couple of years ago from ALS," McCoy said. "So this is something that me and my foundation do to raise money, to create awareness. Most of the proceeds go to the ALS association."
Other Bills teammates will participate with McCoy in the game.
