Over the past few days, Buffalo Bills fans have anxiously sat and awaited news to see which veteran quarterback the team would pick up in free agency to replace the traded Tyrod Taylor, but according to a report the team hadn’t planned on going after any of the free agent signal callers, or at least the ones that have been taken so far.

“They never really pursued any of the free agent QBs who have signed, from what I’m told. Was never the plan going into the week,” tweeted Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 in Buffalo.

When the rest of the league was focusing on getting a leader under center, the Bills were focused on bulking up their pass rush and defensive line. Capaccio does leave the door slightly ajar for other QBs who are still unsigned like Matt Moore, Derek Anderson, A.J. McCarron, and a couple others.

With the options on the table limited and dwindling at the quarterback position, it seems as if the Bills front office will either sign one of those remaining options, hand the reigns to Nathan Peterman (which is not ideal), or go all-in on the draft and hopefully grab the team’s QB of the future.
