How many QBs will Bills carry now?

Posted by Chris Brown on August 27, 2012 – 2:28 pm

Final roster cuts are on Friday, when the team must trim their roster to 53. Quarterbacks Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brad Smith are locks for the roster. Now in light of the trade to acquire Tarvaris Jackson one wonders if all four quarterbacks might be carried on the opening day roster for the Bills.

The reason why is with Jackson so new to the Bills offensive system, it might be hard to ask him to effectively execute the offense in two weeks time should there be an injury to Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 1. It may very well force the Bills to carry all four quarterbacks on their roster to make sure they have a signal caller that can execute all aspects of the offense in a very important division game.

That being said, the offensive coaches had Brad Smith working with the quarterbacks up until last week when he moved to receiver with the sole purpose of having Smith know enough of the offense to get them out of a game if there were injuries suffered at quarterback.
