The Bills have made a shift from 3-ring binders to streamlined iPads that mirrors efforts to change the culture and take this team into a new age under Coach Doug Marrone.
Upon arrival at One Bills Drive on Tuesday, the players picked up their playbooks and began offseason voluntary workouts, as is usual on their first day back in Buffalo. But in more ways than one, it wasn't the "usual" first day back.
A new set of coaches and their new culture greeted the players, as well as new iPads to take the place of 3-ring binders full of plays on paper; even the once-staple playbook distribution wasn't "usual."
"This is a first for me," said Bills SS Da'Norris Searcy. "I thought we were going to get those thick binders again. I walked in and they said stop right here, pick up your book bag, and pick up your iPad."
