Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman commented on the quarterback depth chart Tuesday. With Matt Cassel re-signed head coach Rex Ryan confirmed that the veteran is the number two quarterback behind starter Tyrod Taylor. Roman explained why.
“Matt would probably be the best suited at this moment to be our backup quarterback, but I have a lot of confidence in EJ as well,” said Roman. “Two different styles of players at the position, but I think to function as a backup it’ll probably be Matt right now and we’ll just see where that goes down the road, but we feel very good about Matt going in at any point in time.”
Roman’s comment clearly leaves the number two role subject to change at some point in the future, but Cassel is clearly the backup for the outset of the season.
