The big storyline

Rotation, rotation, rotation. How the rotation turns out in a huge position group is going to be one of the top storylines during training camp.

Hughes and Addison once again headline the depth chart, but behind them are three young players in Epenesa and rookies Rousseau and Basham. As things currently sit, it’s anyone’s guess as to how the rotation will sort itself out during training camp. There’s a chance one of the trio could even see more snaps than Addison once the regular season gets rolling.

Prior to the draft, Obada was added via free agency as well. He could find a way to slide onto the final roster despite the recent draft’s additions to the Bills.
