Report: QB Landry Jones works out for Buffalo Bills

The former Steeler is looking for a new team

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

With the relative lack of experience on the Buffalo Bills roster at quarterback, and a rookie starter in Josh Allen, many have asked why the team has not added a veteran signal caller to the roster. Apparently the team has worked out at least one veteran quarterback in former Pittsburgh Steeler Landry Jones.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted an update early on Sunday morning, sharing that the Bills were one of four teams to work out Jones. Fans will remember that Jones spent the past five seasons in Pittsburgh as the primary back-up to Ben Roethlisberger. Jones has appeared in 18 games through his career, with five total starts.

Many would argue that the Bills need to add a veteran quarterback, as Nathan Peterman is the only back-up currently on the roster. Jones completed close to 64% of his passes as a Steeler, with 8 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Whether the Bills sign Jones or not, it will be a situation worth monitoring as the team may be looking to add a veteran quarterback.
