After the Buffalo Bills trade with the Cleveland Browns became official on Wednesday, sending Tyrod Taylor to his new team, the Bills knew they needed a quarterback. They used the opening day of free agency to sign a veteran.
The Bills were limited in their selection, as many of the free agent quarterbacks have already signed with their new team. Buffalo signed A.J. McCarron to a two-year deal.
McCarron, who won his case against the Bengals to become a free agent, will compete with Nathan Peterson. Head Coach Sean McDermott loves Peterson, but he’s just too raw.
Despite McCarron signing with the Bills, the team is still expected to draft a quarterback with one of their three first round draft picks.
McCarron, who was nearly traded to the Cleveland Browns in Oct., played in three games. He went 7 of 14 for 66 yards.
He has limited starting experience — and it’s not clear if McDermott will give him the reigns or allow Peterman to start at this standpoint. McCarron last started in the NFL in 2015 when he went 2-1.
In his NFL career, he’s appeared in 11 games, including three starts. He’s gone 86 of 133 for 920 yards with six touchdowns and two interceptions.
