06/12 Bills: Lynch gets reps with first team
Marshawn Lynch continued to rotate in with the first team during the Bills first day at minicamp on Monday. "We're doing a lot of the same things that I did at Cal with coach [Jeff] Tedford," Lynch told the team's official website. "Lining me up at receiver, making catches out of the backfield and getting carries. I feel good about all that I'm being asked to do."
Tedford ran a pro-style offense at Cal, which is one of the reasons we fully expect Lynch to step in and be an impact rookie right away. His ability to catch the ball out of the backfield will also give the Bills another dimension that they didn't have for the last few seasons with Willis McGahee. Lynch continues to rotate in with Anthony Thomas for the time being, but it's expected he'll earn the No. 1 job without much problem by Week 1.
