Gailey wraps up rookie camp weekend

The Bills finished up their fourth and final practice of rookie minicamp early this afternoon on the grass field outside the team's fieldhouse.

Coach Chan Gailey on what he took away from the the weekend: "We had great effort. We got to see some guys run around and try to retain what we had taught them for three days. It was very good work in my opinion. We were able to get outside all three days and we were able to get a lot accomplished."

Gailey's big focus was on seeing what the players could retain from day to day.

"Impressed with some and not impressed with others. But that’s the way it is. You’re trying to find that out. You can watch them run, jump and change direction but you don’t know their mental capacity," he said. "That’s the one thing you don’t know off film, so you’re trying to get a good gauge of that."

A total of 45 players took part in the four practices -- nine draft picks, 10 undrafted free agents, five first-year players and 21 tryout participants.

The next phase of the offseason program will be voluntary organized team activities. The first of those 10 sessions will be May 29. The team will hold a mandatory three-day minicamp from June 19-21.
