Found February 16, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
The Buffalo Bills announced on Friday that they’ve re-signed quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and he’ll have the opportunity to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job. “I spoke with Ryan (Fitzpatrick) and Tarvaris (Jackson) and told them we will have an open competition at the quarterback position – similar to what we will do at all positions on our team heading into our offseason work,” said Bills head coach Doug Marrone, per BuffaloBills.com. “I believe that our players will embrace this challenge. We are looking forward to working with our players as we prepare for the 2013 season.” It will certainly be interesting to see who wins the Bills’ starting quarterback job for next season.  I think they’ll also draft a quarterback and have him compete with Jackson and Fitzpatrick.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? ...

Tarvaris Jackson Coming Back Isn’t a Bad Thing: Bills News Wrap Up

Yesterday morning, the Bills cut QB Tavaris Jackson. When I first saw the text from “Buddy Nix” (how the Bills texts show up on my phone), I only saw Jackson’s name and didn’t really give it any thought considering the QB was almost never active for the team. But quickly the angry/mocking tweets started to emerge and it became clear that no, Tavaris Jackson was re signed...

Buffalo Bills jettison veteran cornerback McGee

The Buffalo Bills shakeup continues as they parted ways with 11-year veteran cornerback Terrence McGee on Thursday. McGee was one of the longest tenured members of the Bills, playing for the team for 10 seasons.

Buffalo Bills cut CB Terrence McGee

The Bills have parted ways with another veteran, this time the axe has come down on aging cornerback and Buffalo mainstay Terrence McGee, according to buffalobills.com.

Buffalo Bills re-sign QB Tarvaris Jackson

On paper, this deal isn’t a terrible value. Tarvaris Jackson can earn up to 4.5 million with incentives with this deal, which isn’t unreasonable for a solid backup quarterback, which is what I think Jackson is. No longer is Jackson the “project/developmental quarterback.” He turns 30 in a couple of months and he’s as good as he’s going to get. He’s now an experienced...

Just For Kicks: Comparing, contrasting AFC East kickers thanks to a slow news day

It's a slow news day. And since this is AFC East Daily and not SportsCenter, we won't try to create a story where there isn't one. We'll just pass the time. So no news is good news -- for the kickers. The AFC East has a pretty good dynamic of boots, so it's only fair they get their annual 400(ish) words of fame.Who better to start with than Buffalo Bills kicker...

Buffalo Bills 2013 Offseason Preview

If the 2012 Houston Texans were a bigger disappointment than receiving homework on Friday in grade school (nice, Matt), then the 2012 Buffalo Bills are like going to Buffalo, expecting to indulge on countless wings, only to be force fed Buffalo Wings M-E-T-H-O-D Man style. Honestly, the only thing I find more annoying than Ryan Fitzpatrick’s high interception rate is when my...
