The Bills have been surprisingly quiet at the quarterback position this offseason.
“To me unless something different happens between and now and
post-draft, to me it’s an open competition for the job to see what
happens,” Gailey said Tuesday. “We’ve got some guys that obviously have played well at times
and some guys that are unproven that we don’t know, but were well
regarded coming out. So to me we’ve got to see who can rise to the top.”
The well-regard unproven guy is Brian Brohm, who apparently will get a crack at moving up the depth chart ahead of Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick.
The team’s lack of movement at quarterback thus far puts enormous pressure to get a quarterback in the draft or a trade. The organization can’t sell bringing back the same three guys.
Most likely, the heir to the J.P. Losman/Trent Edwards “quarterback of the future that never arrives” mantle will be taken in round one or two.
