ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — After kicking off organized team activities Tuesday, the Bills got Wednesday off, with two more sessions left to go this week Thursday and Friday.
After finishing 26th in total defense, and piling up more sacks than only two NFL teams, the Bills were bold this offseason. With a monster contract in hand, Mario Williams is naturally a shoe-in at defensive end. But with the addition of Mark Anderson, it raises the question of who will start on the other end of the line.
Anderson is a clear option after 11 sacks in New England, providing competition for Chris Kelsay, who had 41 tackles and five sacks last year.
"There's going to be a three or four man rotation in that group all year long, hopefully. Hopefully everyone stays healthy and we've got a great rotation going there," said head coach Chan Gailey.
"My first few years in the league, when we had Pat and Sam up front, we had Aaron Schobel and Ryan Denney, we had a three man, four man rotation all the time, keeping guys healthy, keeping guys fresh," said Kelsay. "If you're playing 80, 90 snaps a game, you can't play all out every single play. You're going to try. You're going to get gassed, and you're going to be ineffective on plays."
