IMG_1970After being at the helm of Super Bowl teams featuring Jim Kelly and Peyton Manning, Bill Polian knows what a franchise QB looks like.

And the soon-to-be Pro Football Hall of Famer is keeping tabs on Buffalo’s search for a winning QB. Polian was a guest on The John Murphy Show Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. He strongly believes the Bills should an experienced, veteran presence in their quarterback room.

“There has to be a veteran, there’s no two ways about that,” Polian said.  “Greg Roman’s going to take the right approach. If EJ Manuel can do it, Greg will put him in a position to do so because he’s not going to put a huge burden on him. It has to be the right veteran and the process has to go forward.  We’ll find out come September.”

Besides adding a veteran, Polian also thinks the Bills should take a long look at the QB prospects in this year’s draft, even if Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota are not going to be available.

“Obviously the two top guys are not within reach now, because of the lack of a first round draft choice,” he said. “But who knows, there might be somebody down below who’s the answer. Frank  Reich was a third round pick, Joe Montana was a third rounder, Russell Wilson was a third rounder.  Maybe there’s somebody there who will eventually be the guy.”
