Buffalo Bills Sign QB AJ McCarron

By steve

2 year contract for the 27 year old former cincinnati Bengal. He has 3 career starts along with a playoff start in which he nearly beat the Steelers.

Two years is a solid bridge to the QB they'll draft and push to start this upcoming season.

I see this as a Nick Foles esque insurance policy with some upside.

Is he the quarterbsck of the future? Almost certainly not but a capable NFL quarterback for a short period.

Contract details per profootballtalk
"AJ McCarron deal in Buffalo: Two years, $10 million with $6.5 million upside based on playing time. Per source."

Even cheaper than Foles. I see no downside to this at all

Bills Have 4 Players in PFT Top 100 Free Agents

By steve

With free agency in the NFL to start next week profootballtalk has released their annual top 100 free agents. The Bills have four players in the top 100:

EJ Gaines 22nd
Kyle Williams 44th
Jordan Matthews 68th
Preston Brown 91st

Surprised 35 year old Kyle Williams is even on the list (good for his leverage). Also surprised injury prone Gaines is so high (makes the Vontae Davis contract seem to be smart). Notable that Preston Brown is so low and Jordan Matthews is about right.
