Bills WR Jake Kumerow continued to have a strong training camp Thursday, catching everything that went his way according to 7 Eyewitness Sports' Adam Unger.
Kumerow spent the majority of 2020 with the Bills before he was released him in December. The New Orleans Saints claimed him following his release. He was then released by the Saints and has since returned to the Bills.
McKenzie spoke highly of Kumerow Thursday.
“I didn’t know what he could do, but he comes out there running down special teams as an R2, L2, making plays. And then he goes in during a game and scores," McKenzie said. "Then the Saints took him away, I was like, dang we lost Jake. But we like Jake here, like Jake likes being here. I asked him the other day, like, why’d you come back? And he was like I don’t want to be nowhere else. But Jake’s awesome.”
On the defensive side of the ball Tremaine Edmunds stepped up and had an interception.
