After the completion of mini camp, Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone stated that he didn't care about how the players got to the camp, but rather how they performed both on the field and in the classroom.

For Caleb Holley, getting to camp was quite the trip, and now it ends with a contract with the Buffalo Bills.

According to buffalobills.com,

"Holley (6-4, 200), finished up his college career at East Central University in Oklahoma after spending his first two collegiate seasons at San Francisco City college. The Anchorage, Alaska native rolled up 970 receiving yards his senior season with the Tigers to set a school mark and earn second team All-Great American Conference honors. He also had 55 catches and nine touchdowns. Holley additionally set a school mark for single-game receiving yards when he put up 224 last October in a game against Southern Nazarene."

Holley was able to show his ability to separate from defensive backs and catch the ball when thrown to him. 

The HBO series Hard Knocks may be knocking on the door at One Bills Drive this coming season. 

The series that showcases behind-the-scenes looks at NFL teams as they prepare for the season typically chooses a team that volunteers for the exposure, however if nobody volunteers the NFL has a set of guidelines for the selection of the next team to be featured on the series. 

The guidelines are:

1 – They do not have a new head coach
2 – They haven’t made the playoffs in the last two years
3 – They haven’t participated in the series in the previous 10 seasons
 
Currently, the Bills are one of eight teams that could be selected.
 
The other seven teams are:
 
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Chicago Bears
  • Jacksonville Jaguars
  • New York Giants
  • Oakland Raiders
  • Pittsburgh Steelers
  • St. Louis Rams

While there hasn't been a decision yet, there is some speculation that a couple of teams have volunteered. While that hasn't been confirmed by the NFL, the team to be featured will be announced in the near future.
