AJ McCarron signs with Buffalo Bills

15 March 2018

The Bills don't have much in the way of weapons - injury-prone Charles Clay led the team in receiving yards previous year - but at least McCarron will finally get a chance to start. New England should have some competition, though, as the Buffalo Bills were among the several teams reportedly eyeing McCarron.

For his career, McCarron has completed 64.7 percent of his 133 passes for 920 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions.

In the two years since his audition for a starting role, the former fifth-round pick has played in four games. 12 and 187 picks in this year's draft.

Despite the trade, the Bills are still expected to draft a quarterback in the upcoming NFL Draft. By moving Taylor to Cleveland, Buffalo essentially put that out of question.

This is why a two-year deal is flawless for McCarron, as it gives the Bills options.

The signing of McCarron doesn't change the Bills' draft strategy.

Via Ford's press release, the safety recall has occurred due to the risk of a possible clutch plate fracture . That recall affects 2013-2016 model Ford Focus vehicles and 2013-2016 Ford Fusions with manual transmissions.

McCarron, 27, joins a Bills team that made the playoffs for the first time in 17 years. It's looking less and less likely that he will find what he was looking for but there is still a team without a veteran quarterback going into 2018.

The Patriots' current backup quarterback is Brian Hoyer, who signed as a free agent shortly after the Garoppolo trade went down. McCarron didn't get what he thought he would on the open market, and the Bills were able to capitalize.

It wasn't until his second season in the National Football League until the former Alabama quarterback saw his first game action, and he was needed to step up in a big way for the team.

McCarron gives them one.

It's a win-win scenario.
