30 for 30: 'OJ' film revisited

Any retrospective on the 30 for 30 series must include 'OJ: Made In America,' the five-part, seven-and-a-half hour film that broke away from the usual format to great acclaim. On episode three of our anniversary series, Jody Avirgan talks with the film's director Ezra Edelman about how he used OJ's Simpson's life story as a venue to explore America's complicated racial history, as well as his rise and fall as a sports icon. The film and the entire 30 for 30 collection are available exclusively on our streaming service ESPN+: es.pn/2shPit7.

Bills coach Sean McDermott acknowledged Friday there is an "ongoing evaluation" on whether to continue holding training camp at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York after Buffalo opened an $18 million weight room this offseason. McDermott: "You've watched over the years the number of teams that don't go away versus the teams that go away. It's changed drastically. For that being one of the reasons, you have to give consideration to the cost/benefit of going away. I still believe, and I know [GM] Brandon [Beane] does too, that there are benefits that are involved with going away. ... It's an ongoing evaluation. If it weren't, we wouldn't be doing our collective jobs because of what we now have here. The needs of the modern athlete change every day. We have to make sure we are giving them every chance to become the best versions of themselves." The Bills' agreement with St. John Fisher College, which began in 2000, runs through 2021.

The Bills announced Friday that their training camp will begin July 25 at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York. There will be only eight practices open to the public in addition to one night practice Aug. 2 at New Era Field. General manager Brandon Beane said Friday the low number of public practices is because the team needs to rotate grass practice fields, sometimes using a field not accessible to the public. Beane also noted the Bills will hold joint practices with the Panthers before an Aug. 16 preseason game in Carolina that will cut down on the number of practices in Rochester.

The Bills canceled Thursday's minicamp practice to instead hold a team-building activity. Players will next practice in late July at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, although Buffalo has yet to announce its training-camp start date or schedule.

Like Tuesday's minicamp practice, Bills QB Josh Allen ended Wednesday's session better than he began it. Allen threw an interception early in 11-on-11 work to safety Jordan Poyer and was sacked twice, leading to him trying to fire up the offense. He struggled in a third-down drill backed up against his own end zone, but rebounded in a red zone drill in which he completed four consecutive passes and later scrambled for a 5-yard touchdown.

The Bills focused much of their offseason attention on their offensive line, signing six free agents and making C Mitch Morse the highest-paid center in the league. However, the group continues to get hit hard by injuries. Morse returned from core muscle surgery to Tuesday's practice, but the Bills were without possible starting guards in Jon Feliciano and Quinton Spain, right tackle Ty Nsekhe and potential interior backups Russell Bodine, Jeremiah Sirles and Ike Boettger. The Bills had only nine healthy offensive linemen in Tuesday's practice.

The Bills continue to distribute first-team snaps at running back between LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore and rookie third-round pick Devin Singletary. Each received time behind Josh Allen in 11-on-11 action during Tuesday's minicamp practice. At one point, McCoy received early-down reps before Gore entered on short yardage for third- and fourth-downs. However, Gore also received snaps out of the shotgun for pass protection.

Even without top receivers Zay Jones (undisclosed injury), Cole Beasley (core muscle surgery) and Robert Foster (foot), as well as tight end Tyler Kroft (foot), Bills second-year QB Josh Allen still managed to complete five first-down passes to move from his own 25-yard line to the 4-yard line in a 5-minute drill in Tuesday's minicamp practice. Allen completed first-down passes to wide receivers John Brown and Victor Bolden, as well as rookie tight ends Dawson Knox (twice) and Tommy Sweeney. However, the drive stalled near the goal line and ended in a field goal.

The Bills will have a pair of key free-agent signings back at practice for the start of minicamp Tuesday in C Mitch Morse and WR Core Beasley. Both underwent core muscle surgeries this offseason and missed OTAs. Morse will be "full go" at practice while Beasley will be limited. However, the Bills will be without two other top receivers in Zay Jones and Robert Foster (foot).
