Yates, and then Cardale Jones in the draft a year ago. I'm not sure there is a team out there that has the depth that we do at the quarterback position. So we feel good about that. We're anxious to see how Tyrod develops in his third year as a starter in a new system, a system that he has some familiarity with in terms of [new Buffalo offensive coordinator] Rick Dennison's system in Baltimore a few years back with Gary Kubiak."'

Marker The Buffalo Bills have no idea what they’re doing at quarterback [1:46 AM]

You know we got the young guy (Nathan) Peterman, I thought he did some nice things this weekend at the minicamp. Cardale Jones has huge arm and talent. I don't know anything about him personally. TJ Yates has done some starting in his career, so there are some guys on the roster. I am for open competition.'

Marker Bills Today: Tyrod Taylor welcomes rookies [1:37 AM] reports: '“He texted me as soon as I got drafted. He told me he couldn’t wait to work with me. I met him (Friday) in person in the locker room,” said Jones. “He seems like an unbelievable guy. Family oriented, just loves his teammates. He embraced me. That tells you what type of man he is. He didn’t have to do that. So glad to play for someone like that and I can’t wait to develop with him.”'
