Marrone: open competition at all positions

Posted by Chris Brown on February 15, 2013 – 12:09 pm

With the announcement that Tarvaris Jackson has re-signed with the Bills, head coach Doug Marrone made it clear that the starting quarterback job and every other position on the roster is up for grabs.

“We will have an open competition at all positions on our team heading into our offseason work,” said Marrone. “I believe that our players will embrace this challenge. We are looking forward to working with our players as we prepare for the 2013 season.”

A team-wide open competition is not uncommon when a new coaching staff is hired, and that will be the case under Marrone for the Bills. Knowing players have to prove themselves to a new staff, there’s sure to be intense position battles at training camp this summer, including starting quarterback.
