So long to Jake Fromm State Farm!

Very questionable and shortsighted career move by Fromm. He had a good chance to be the long-term primary backup for a winning organization starting next year. Puzzling as I'm not sure how this helps him except for very short-term financial gain. Now, he goes to a very unstable situation, likely facing offseason upheaval.

He probably sees it as an opportunity to actually see the field. Daniel Jones is close to bust status, if not already there. Yeah, he could’ve stayed on with a chance to develop into the long term backup here, but there was no guarantee. After riding the unathletic Matt Barkley train for a few years, I think think the Bills prefer an athletic profile more similar to Josh’s traits holding the clipboard so they don’t have to change everything if they need to use him. Which Jake Fromm is clearly not.

Wasn't Fromm behind Davis on the depth chart?  So how did he have a good chance to be the primary back up?

Maybe he doesn't see himself as a career backup?

But…..who will handle all our insurance needs? 

 

 

A dome team (or at least a team with less challenging weather) might have been a better landing spot for him, but I’m sure he’s just happy to make an active roster.

Webb will be a coach soon. He's said as much.

 

perhaps.   but Fromm hasn't exactly looked good.   So if indeed Trubisky goes somewhere else next season and Davis also decides to move to coaching,   the Bills likely aren't going to keep the status quo with sub par backup QBing.

Did he have  a  choice?
