1. Tremaine Edmunds puts letter grade on his career thus far
He led the Bills in tackles for a third straight season in 2020 and was named as a starter to the Pro Bowl after Buffalo's 15-win campaign that went as far as the AFC title game. So where would Tremaine Edmunds peg his overall game with three seasons under his belt?
He was asked that very question in an appearance on NFL Network's 'Good Morning Football.'
"I'm a tough grader," Edmunds said. "I feel like I've still got a lot more room to grow. I've done some really good things, but at the same time I know what I can do. I know my talents and how far I can take this linebacker position as far as where I want to see myself in the next couple of years. But as far as letter grade I'd say 'B' minus because I know what I can do and where I can be."
Edmunds played through some tough weeks in the first half of the 2020 season as he dealt with a shoulder injury that affected his physical style of play. But the linebacker is motivated by those who doubted his ability on the field going forward.
"I'm looking forward to this upcoming year because I've been around some real good guys who paved the way from me and guys I've learned from," he said. "I'm nowhere near where I could be so I'm going back to the drawing board, so all the people sleeping on me I'm going to wake them all up and let them know what I can do out there."
2. Isaiah McKenzie hopeful for return to Buffalo
Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie is set to become an unrestricted free agent in less than a week. On Wednesday he made an appearance on 'Good Morning Football' on NFL Network and was asked about whether he'd like to return to the Bills roster for next season.
"If I get the chance to go back to Buffalo I would love to because the fan base is amazing," he said. "The coaches and the organization is awesome. My teammates are amazing. At this point it's up to my agent and whatever decision he makes I've got to leave to him. I can't say too much about it."
McKenzie playing on a one-year contract for the Bills last season posted single-season career highs in receptions (30), receiving yards (282) and receiving touchdowns (5). He also had an 82-yard punt return in Week 17 vs. Miami for the team's only special teams touchdown of the season for the Bills and a passing touchdown to Josh Allen in Week 10 at Arizona.
The five-year pro also shared that he is co-owner of a barbecue restaurant in his native Florida called 'La Traina.'
3. This Bills free agent makes ESPN.com's top 15 list
ESPN.com NFL reporter Kevin Seifert put together his list of 100 top NFL free agents and one Bills player made the top 15.
LB Matt Milano was ranked 15th overall in the free agent class. Here's Seifert's explanation as to why he had the four-year pro so highly rated.
Not too many people outside of Buffalo have heard of Milano, a fifth-round draft pick in 2017. But people who watch the Bills closely know he has developed into a reliable three-down linebacker who can be counted on to play the run, perform well in pass coverage and even rush the passer on occasion. He will have a sneaky-active market.
The only other Bills impending free agent to make the list was RT Daryl Williams. He was ranked 55th on ESPN.com's top 100 list of free agent players.
