Rookie Reggie Ragland is already learning ropes

Local Sports

A big question mark for the Bills this season is their linebackers.

Second round pick Reggie Ragland is expected to contribute right away.

There’s a lot being thrown at him, but he’s already started off on a good foot.

“I think he improves every day. Learning the NFL game and learning our defense and learning route concepts and runs that he’s going to get,” said linebacker Preston Brown. “He’s starting to fly around and that’s good to see.”

“Preston Brown and all those guys are helping me out a lot and I know if I don’t understand something before the play, I ask Preston and Preston knows it right off the bat,” Ragland said. “He’s helping me out a lot and helping me adjust.”

“We’re more invested because we know we have to be. We can’t take things for granted and say ‘Oh, we know it,’” Brown said. “We have to put in the time to study our plays, know to do the right thing. Everybody is ready this year and ready to go.”
