Jackson played zero games for the Bills last season after coming over in a late trade from the Seahawks last pre-season, the Bills are that Fitzpatrick and Jackson will have "open competition.", if that is the case why didn't he get any playing time last season when Fitzpatrick was struggling?

"Open Competition" sounds a whole lot like "we'll be looking for a QB in the draft" to me.

True - this seems a little weird to me actually. If they do draft a guy - how likely is it that they keep TJax, Fitz and the rookie all on the roster?

IMO, it would all depend on where he was drafted. If he's a 2nd or later, then he may ride the pine for a while. If he's a 1st rounder, then the winner of the "open competition" might actually win a spot as the #2.

Woo T-jack! I really want him to succeed.

But he won't. Horrible QB.

So the answer to Buffalo's QB problems, is massively overpaying a QB who isn't even a starting quality QB?

What?

Terrible Jackson got 4.5 million dollars?


I'm speechless. I really thought Buddy Nix was going to be a great GM... These aren't the type of decisions that turn a franchise around though. Jackson is garbage.

Looks to me like they are hoping for a Russell Wilson situation with a rookie. How ironic for Jackson. I hope for their sake they get a good rookie because other wise they have Jackson or Fitzpatrick under center.....

You're missing the key word in the tweet.

COULD be worth 4.5 million. I'm sure that there are incentives he has to reach before it's worth 4.5 Mil.

Probably because they have a new head coach. Gailey was pretty confident about Fitzparick as I recall. Either way, I think the Bills address a QB in this draft within the first 2 rounds. I expect either Tyler Wilson, Matt Barkley, or Mike Glennon to be on their roster.

I hope it's vet minimum and worth up to 4.5 million if he starts at least three games continbent on Bills fans not referring to him as "Terrible Jackson."

I think the Bills will now explore trading Fitzpatrick, once they fail [and they will giving his huge contract] he will be released to save cap space, the Bills will then try to draft a QB early in the draft or trade for Smith/Flynn.

1. Because if he was active for too many games the conditional pick would have been a sixth rounder rather than a seventh rounder.

2. I suspect he gave indication during practices that he would be an improvement over Fitz.

I really hope the lion's share of his contract are incentives based on number of starts and the like. There's no way he's worth anywhere near that amount.

I would think Nassib has to be on that list also, mainly because of his head coach connection.
