NFL Notes: Bills, Jets, Rams

     

Bills

The Bills are excited to add WR and returner, Andre Roberts, after Roberts turned in an All-Pro season with the Jets last year, and, in the words of QB Josh Allen, “kicked our butts.”

“I feel like I’m going to impact the team in a big way,” Roberts said via Vic Carruci of the Buffalo News. “I think the return spot is a very special part of special teams. I know I’m going to have the ball in my hands a lot. There’s a lot of people’s jobs on the line when it’s kicked, so I take a lot of pride in it and I work hard and be the best I can be.”

  • Carruci says he’s heard “absolutely nothing” supporting the idea the Bills are looking to trade RB LeSean McCoy.
  • Carruci would not be shocked to see third-round rookie TE Dawson Knox start for the Bills Week 1. 
  • Carruci believes Levi Wallace will hold off Kevin Johnson and E.J. Gaines for the No. 2 cornerback position. 

Jets

Jets second-year TE Chris Herndon says there’s a noticeable difference between the offense being installed by new HC Adam Gase and what New York ran last season. 

“Just from the jump, we’re taking shots down the field, using everybody and everybody is getting a chance to touch the ball,” Herndon said via the team website’s Ethan Greenberg. “You feel a different energy out there and we’re just trying to keep this momentum that we have right now and let that carry into the next day, next camp and going into the season.”

Rams

  • Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports that Rams’ strength and conditioning coach Ted Rath‘s trial began on Friday in Ventura County Superior Court after pleading not guilty to three counts of misdemeanor sexual battery from an alleged incident in June 2018. 
  • Rath has been placed on a leave of absence following his January arrest.
  • If convicted in this case, Klein mentions that Rath faces a maximum 18 months in jail.
