Jake Dombrowski reports to Bills Camp
Jake Dombrowski’s NFL career has already started.
The Gaylord High School alum reported to training camp with the Buffalo Bills Wednesday morning.
Dombrowski has been out of football for two years. He last punted for Harvard in 2012.
Yet his perseverance paid off this summer when he signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills.
He’ll have trouble unseating 14-year veteran Brian Moorman.
However, Dombrowski knows what he has to work on in order to have a chance at staying in the NFL.
“Right now, the three weeks I’ve been home, and the whole offseason I’ve been working on directional punting more,” Dombrowski said. “Placing the ball where I want to and hang time, I’ve always been a big hang time guy. So directional punting is probably my weakest standpoint in the whole repertoire I have, but it’s definitely gotten a lot better since January, when I really started focusing in on it.”
The Bills and New York Giants can start training camp a little early because they will meet in the Hall of Fame Game August 3rd.
If Dombrowski can stay with the Bills through August he will get to punt against the Detroit Lions to close out the preseason.
