ORCHARD PARK Josh Oliver Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — man welcoming committee in sending a text to each of the team’s numerous free agent additions last month.“It didn’t take a whole lot of effort to do it,” Allen said, discussing how many of the newcomers revealed how impressed they were in the quarterback being among the first to greet them. “I was just trying to let them know that I’m happy that they’re with us, and just trying to reach out and get my foot in the door and start that relationship as early as possible.”The next step in the introductory phase came Monday, when the Bills opened their voluntary workout sessions.For Allen, it was the second-year player’s first real opportunity to begin putting names to the many new faces Buffalo added in essentially revamping its entire offense. Of the Bills’ 17 veteran free agents signed this offseason, 11 play offensive positions.It’s a group that includes established receivers Cole Beasley and John Brown, tight end Tyler Kroft, and running back Frank Gore. Beasley and Brown join a bunch of receivers that lacked experience and a proven threat, while Gore will be teamed with LeSean McCoy in a backfield featuring two players over 31.The remaining seven are offensive linemen http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-quincy-williams-ii-jersey , including center Mitch Morse, in Buffalo’s bid to upgrade what had been a patchwork unit a year ago. Aside from Allen leading the team with 631 yards rushing, Buffalo ground attack sputtered, and the line had difficulty in pass protection.Though excited, Allen isn’t sure what to make of all the new additions because, as he put it: “It’s my first offseason, so I don’t really know how things work.”The Bills are hoping the newcomers spur a dramatic improvement and play a role in continuing Allen’s development after he showed signs of improvement as last season progressed. The first-round draft pick initially struggled when being thrust into the starting role after Nathan Peterman unraveled in a season-opening 47-3 loss at Baltimore.Allen averaged 151 yards passing with five touchdowns (three rushing), five interceptions and a lost fumble in going 2-3 before being sidelined by a sprained right throwing arm. He closed the season with a 3-3 record in which he averaged 207 yards passing with 12 touchdowns (four rushing), seven interceptions and a lost fumble.“It means we’ve got a lot of work to do. A lot of different new minds trying to work with each other now, trying to build that camaraderie Ryquell Armstead Jersey ,” Allen said. “It’s not going to be perfect right away, and we don’t expect it to be perfect. But we’re starting that communication now, and hopefully we can start getting on the same page with everything.”Allen has already begun developing a bond with Morse, who is projected to take over at center.The first thing Allen learned was Morse isn’t big on spicy chicken wings.“Honey-butter barbecue, Cajun, he can do that all day, but hot is not his thing,” Allen said with a laugh after introducing Morse to his favorite wings restaurant. “But lucky to have him and glad to have him, especially with all we’ve got going on.”NOTES: Allen said his right elbow feels fine, and added he spent a few weeks working with a physical therapist this offseason. … The offseason program coincides with the Bills opening their newly built two-floor http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-gardner-minshew-ii-jersey , $18-million workout facility added on to their practice fieldhouse. “It’s amazing. I think it speaks for itself,” linebacker Tremaine Edmunds said. “The owners really did pretty much what we could ask for.”… The Bills will hold their first on-field team practice on May 20. Last week: 8-7Weeks 1 through 13: 87-88-5Home team shown in bold. Odds taken from Odds Shark.Green Bay (-4.5) vs. AtlantaThis is a matchup of two disappointing teams who had playoff aspirations before the season began. The Packers made a coaching change after an embarrassing loss to the Cardinals last week, which was much-needed. Despite mediocre play (for his standards) so far this season, I can’t see an Aaron Rodgers-led team losing two in a row at home to average opponents.<em>Pick: Green Bay (-4.5)</em>Kansas City (-6.5) vs. BaltimorePat Mahomes vs. this Ravens defense? That should be fun to watch. This seems to be a popular upset pick, but I don’t believe it.<em>Pick: Kansas City (-6.5)</em>Carolina (-1) vs. ClevelandBoth of these teams looked really bad last week, but the Panthers are due for a win. They are better than they have played during this losing stretch (I think).<em>Pick: Carolina (-1)</em>Houston (-4.5) vs. Indianapolis10 in a row for the Texans? 10 in a row for the Texans.<em>Pick: Houston (-4.5)</em>New York Giants (-3) vs. Washington OBJ is out for New York, which takes away some of the entertainment factor in this one. But still, they can’t lose to a Mark Sanchez-led team, right? Right?<em>Pick: New York Giants (-3)</em>Buffalo (-4) vs. New York JetsJosh Allen vs. Sam Darnold should be interesting. Bills roll at home.<em>Pick: Buffalo (-4)</em>New England (-7.5) vs. Miami In his career, Tom Brady is only 7-9 in Miami. The Dolphins always seem to play him & the Patriots well at home.<em>Pick: Miami (+7.5)</em>New Orleans (-10) vs. Tampa Bay I think the Saints roll in this one. Their offense should be rejuvenated after a mini-bye Marquise Brown Jersey , and they want to avenge that week one loss.<em>Pick: New Orleans (-10)</em>Los Angeles Chargers (-15) vs. CincinnatiThe Chargers are building something here. The Bengals are just playing out the rest of the season.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-15)</em>Denver (-3.5) vs. San Francisco A month ago, people were calling for Vance Joseph’s job. A win here puts the Broncos back over .500 and keeps them in the playoff race.<em>Pick: Denver (-3.5)</em>Detroit (-3) vs. Arizona Yuck.<em>Pick: Detroit (-3)</em>Dallas (-3) vs. PhiladelphiaBig matchup here. I think the Cowboys are the better team, but something in my gut is telling me Philly.<em>Pick: Philadelphia (+3)</em>Pittsburgh (-10) vs. Oakland Steelers need a bounce back win here. They won’t let up after what happened last week on Sunday night.<em>Pick: Pittsburgh (-10)</em>Los Angeles Rams (-3) vs. Chicago The Rams are just too good.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Rams (-3)</em>Seattle (-3) vs. MinnesotaAre the Vikings even that good? I don’t really think they are. The Seahawks tend to play well in these types of games, and Kirk Cousins, well, doesn’t.<em>Pick: Seattle (-3)</em>
