After Monday's release of quarterback Trent Edwards, the Buffalo Bills have an open roster spot and just two quarterbacks on the active roster. That's soon to change, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Bills plan to re-sign quarterback Levi Brown to fill the open position.
Brown was the first of two seventh-round picks this past April. Hailing from Troy, Brown was the fourth quarterback throughout training camp and the preseason, and lost out on his initial bid for the Bills' final roster, as he was released just prior to the start of the regular season.
In three preseason appearances, Brown completed 15 of 30 passes for 130 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Following his release, Brown had workouts with both the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants, but clearly did not sign with either team.
If Schefter's report is accurate, Brown will likely serve as the Bills' third quarterback behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick and new primary backup Brian Brohm.
Once again, Chan Gailey is expected to address the media regarding the Edwards release at 3PM this afternoon.
