Bills sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

The Buffalo Bills and free agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick have agreed to a deal, reports the official team site.  Terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed.  We reported earlier this evening that a deal seemed imminent; Fitzpatrick fills Buffalo's need for a veteran backup to starting quarterback Trent Edwards.

Fitzpatrick is a four-year veteran out of Harvard who has spent time with the Rams and more recently the Bengals.  Playing in thirteen games in place of injured starter Carson Palmer, Fitzpatrick completed 59.4 percent of his passes and threw eight touchdowns with nine interceptions.  A smart and generally mistake-free player, Fitzpatrick fits the profile of what Dick Jauron looks for in his quarterbacks.

Bringing Fitzpatrick aboard takes care of one of Buffalo's most critical needs in a cheap fashion and allows the team to focus its attention on other players over the weekend, most notably WR Laveranues Coles and OG Geoff Hangartner.
