Bills trading for another Quarterback?


After being let go by the St. Louis Rams earlier in the year, quarterback Marc Bulger has been signed by the Baltimore Ravens to a one-year $3.8 million dollar deal to backup franchise quarterback Joe Flacco. The signing of Bulger makes the 2006 Heisman Trophy winner, Troy Smith, expendable.

While Smith’s career numbers in the NFL are anything but impressive, one can argue that the QB just hasn’t found the right system to show off his skill set. So now that the backfield in Baltimore is all but set in stone, Peter Schmuck of ‘The Baltimore Sun’ believes that it could help all parties involved if Troy Smith was traded to the Bills for a chance to win the starting job.

With Chan Gailey remaining quiet on the current quarterback situation in Buffalo, why not add this mobile Heisman Trophy winner to the roster? If Chan Gailey plans on running the spread offense as many believe, wouldn’t it be a good idea to add a QB that doesn’t need to rely on an unproven offensive line to throw the ball down the field?

We’ve all seen what Trent Edwards, and Ryan Fitzpatrick can do on the field, and with Brian Brohm and Levi Brown looking more and more like practice squad material, will the Bills pull the trigger and add another quarterback to their roster before training camp? At this point with all the uncertainly in the Bills future, I say why not?

    Peter SCHMUCK is a great name for someone who believes this could happen, or thinks it makes sense for the Bills. Bottom line: it doesn’t. Stick to reporting on your own teams. And Paul.. Brian Brohm reportedly looked solid in OTA’S. Whether that will continue in camp and beyond, remains to be seen.

      “Peter SCHMUCK”- very nice Ryan, ha-ha. I know I didn’t give Brian Brohm enough credit in that article, but just from what I’ve seen, he doesn’t look like he’ll do any better in real game situations than Trent or Ryan Fitz. But I’ll happily eat my words if in training camp he ends up showing that potential a once second round QB should.
