It’s a decent year to be a Buffalo Bills rookie. Two players are full-time starters Youth Devin Singletary Jersey , two more are rotational players who play roughly half the snaps on any given day, and two rookie receivers have carved out smaller roles as contributors to the offense. The team also has a few more first-year players marinating on their roster as weekly inactives or special-teams contributors.Do any of these players look like they could push for a Rookie of the Year award? Last year, Tre’Davious White was the second-place finisher behind Marshon Lattimore in a race that was closer than the final tally indicated. Could a Buffalo Bill break through for the win this year? Here are the best options:Tremaine EdmundsBuffalo’s first-round pick is the most likely candidate to have a chance at rookie of the year. Through five games, he’s notched 38 combined tackles (fourth among rookies), gotten his hands on five passes, forced two fumbles, and added a sack.That still puts him at roughly fourth or fifth place among the current candidates. Los Angeles Chargers rookie safety Derwin James probably leads the pack, with six passes defended, an interception, three sacks, and 31 combined tackles. Also up there is athletic Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard, who currently leads the league in tackles, as well as all rookies in sacks (4) and tackles-for-loss (7). The Cleveland Browns’ fourth overall pick Denzel Ward rounds out the tops three with three picks Womens Devin Singletary Jersey , a forced fumble, six passes defended, and 25 combined tackles.Taron JohnsonJohnson sits far back in the discussion. Still, with his current tendency for splash plays, he’s a dark horse to follow in the race. Johnson has a sack and forced fumble of Aaron Rodgers on his resume, and landed his first career interception last weekend. Slot cornerbacks are rarely recognized for high-impact play, but if Johnson continues his solid tackling and flashes of ball skills, he could start climbing the ladder.Harrison PhillipsBuffalo’s third-round rookie shouldn’t be expected to win the DRoY award with his current stats, but he hasn’t had a poor season by any measure. Phillips has ten tackles on the season, two of them for losses, and he’s delivered most of his work as a rotational backup who controls gaps and stops runs at the line of scrimmage. When the Bills have sought a pass rush impact from between the tackles, they’re sending more speedy players like Shaq Lawson and Lorenzo Alexander, right now.Josh AllenAllen is Buffalo’s only noteworthy rookie on offense Authentic Devin Singletary Jersey , and his performance wouldn’t qualify him as a finalist for ORoY. With two passing touchdowns against five interceptions, even his solid rushing totals (31 attempts for 135 yards and three touchdowns) don’t really help his case—except in fantasy football. None of the rookie quarterbacks, except maybe Baker Mayfield, have played consistently well through the first five games of the season, so at least Bills fans can take comfort in that.Giants running back Saquon Barkley is the current front-runner, with 71 carries for 308 yards and three touchdowns, plus 31 receptions for 274 yards and two touchdowns. Phillip Lindsey—with 57 carries for 328 yards and one touchdown, plus eight receptions for 65 yards and one receiving touchdown—is near the top of the list, as is Calvin Ridley, who leads all rookies in receiving yards and touchdowns with 19 receptions for 302 yards and six touchdowns. The Buffalo Bills are reportedly not in the market for free-agent punter Marquette King despite a The Buffalo Bills are reportedly not in the market for free-agent punter Marquette King despite a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday. Many Bills and NFL reporters were quick to dispute Schefter’s tweet, acknowledging their own sources within the Bills’ organization and the NFL.Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News was the first to refute it, followed by Sal Capaccio from WGR 550, Tim Graham of The Athletic Devin Singletary Jersey Boys , and more. King played for the Oakland Raiders from 2012 until 2018, leading the NFL in punting yards in 2014. He had signed a five-year extension in 2016 worth $16.5 million with $12.5 million guaranteed, but was cut just two years later. King then signed with the Denver Broncos last season, but was released in October after being placed on injured reserve with a thigh injury.The Bills currently have two young punters on the roster. Starting punter Corey Bojorquez had a promising start to the 2018 season, but a shoulder injury put him on injured reserve in late October. Punter Cory Carter has been on the roster since 2017, but he tore his ACL in the preseason and wasn’t able to compete for a roster spot in 2018.Free-agent signees Colton Schmidt and Matt Darr got the call to start for Buffalo after Bojorquez’s season-ending injury, but both are no longer on the roster.As for the Miami Dolphins, the other team Schefter reported to have interest in King, there is no word yet on if the team is actually interested in signing the veteran punter.
