Here's the Bills news of note for July 27th.

**1 - Rambo ready to roll

**He was waiting and wondering if he was going to have a team by the time NFL training camps opened in full this week. That question was answered by the Bills, who signed free agent Bacarri Rambo.

Rambo, who previously played two seasons with the Bills (2014-2015), is back for a second stint and relishes this new opportunity with the Bills.

"It's really where I felt most comfortable," said Rambo of Buffalo in an appearance on the John Murphy Show. "It was a great group of guys, great fan base, great organization. That's where I felt the most at home. So I'm glad to be back and I'm ready to get to work."

The safety understands that things have changed since he last played for the Bills, including the defensive scheme, but with a full training camp in which to get acclimated, Rambo is confident he can pick things up quickly.

"I don't consider it catch up here," he said. "I've got a training camp to get comfortable and get a feel for the coaches and the rest of the team and just be around the guys and learn my plays. I'm grateful to put on my cleats and play my game. I'm ready to get to work."

2 - 6 Bills make 2017 All-AFC East preseason teamBefore the games actually get going the prognosticating and prediction game will continue. CBSSports.com put together their All-AFC East preseason team for 2017 listing 25 total players from the four clubs in the division. Buffalo had six players on the list with four of them in the top 10.

Richie Incognito ranked eighth, Cordy Glenn seventh and Sammy Watkins fourth. LeSean McCoy ranked the highest placing second with only New England QB Tom Brady ahead of him.

RB LeSean McCoy, Bills
Picking just one RB from the division is a tough call after Jay Ajayi's breakout 2016 season, but McCoy gets the nod here thanks to his superior contributions in the passing game and the fact he still topped Ajayi's per-carry average (5.4 to 4.9) despite the latter having three 200-yard games. At 29 years old, McCoy certainly has at least one more elite season left in his legs.

3 - End to playoff drought predicted for BillsESPN.com's Dan Graziano took the prediction business to a new level this week when he laid out projections for three years down the road. Among his predictions was lucky No. 13, which forecast the end of the Bills playoff drought. Here was his assessment.

13. The Bills' playoff drought will end.
*Maybe even this season. Buffalo is stronger on the lines than people give them credit for. Tyrod Taylor is better than you think he is. Sixteen games' worth of good health from Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy might be too much to ask, but if it's not, this is a wild-card contender under hungry and energetic first-year coach Sean McDermott.
