Back in mid-March, well over a month before the start of the 2011 NFL Draft, the National Football Post reported that the Buffalo Bills were one of several teams interested in Minnesota quarterback Adam Weber. The draft came and has long since past, and thanks to the NFL lockout, Weber is still available, as he went undrafted in April.
Now, the Star-Tribune in Minneapolis is reporting that once the lockout ends, the Bills are expected to make a "strong bid" to sign Weber as an undrafted free agent.
As we've discussed throughout this elongated off-season, the Bills are desperately thin at quarterback, and will probably look to sign two when they have the ability to do so. Weber would not solve the team's backup quarterback problem, but he'd be able to compete with 2010 seventh-round pick Levi Brown for the third-string job in camp, at least.
Weber was a four-year starter at Minnesota, where after a very promising sophomore season he regressed as a junior, but then came on for the best season of his career as a senior. The 6'1", 209-pound Weber is a solid athlete with plenty of experience, but his athleticism and production have always left something to be desired.
