Bills GM Doug Whaley isn’t ready to say how they’re going to do it, but he did confirm at the NFL Combine on Thursday that Buffalo will be adding a quarterback to their roster.
“Let’s just say this we have two quarterbacks in the last year of their contracts, we will add another quarterback,” said Whaley. “How we are going to do it, we will keep all our options open.”
The most logical option would appear to be the NFL draft. In a draft where Whaley himself has said there is strong developmental talent from rounds two through six, the Bills stand a good chance of having a crack at a good value at quarterback somewhere in that range. More importantly that prospect will be affordable and not hurt the Bills already tight cap situation, unlike a free agent signal caller.
As far as the draft prospects are concerned or free agency for that matter, Whaley again is focused on landing the best quarterback they can acquire, not one that can mimic the skills of Tyrod Taylor.
“You look for the best guy at the value that we would want to take him or sign him, if it is a free agent, or a trade possibility,” he said. “So you just look for the best guy you think can help your team get over that hump.”
