So long to Jake Fromm State Farm!

He knew he didn't have a chance to start and possibly even to back up due to Josh staying healthy and if he even wants or thinks he's a starter he probably wants a better opportunity for that chance but i don't think it's a huge loss for the Bills .

 

I do think he would have been a good back up after this season .

I need to disagree with this. The Bills were never going to invest and develop Jake. They could have used that pick on an interior olineman or a DB. 
BTW I am a huge UGA fan. Never thought Jake was going to amount to much in the NFL due to his lack of physical traits. 

I respect your opinion. As far as physical attributes, the picture of Jones overweight with a cigar in his mouth shows that sometimes physical attributes in college aren’t indicative of how they treat their body in the NFL. We’ve all seen Brady’s combine picture and he’s an enigma now. Talking a shot on any other position than QB would be justified but I didn’t mind taking a shot

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.

Maybe he saw the writing in the wall, all the best to him. Guess we'll take a kid next year in Rounds 5-7 and sign another vet assuming Mitch leaves.

Fair point, I don’t. But what evidence do you see they tried to develop him? 

 

I've heard several commentators talk about how this coaching staff tries to develop every player on the roster down to the practice squad guys, and note that that specifically didn't happen with past administrations.  I see it on the field too.  If Fromm didn't work out, it's not because the Bills didn't try to develop him.  It also doesn't mean they were going to hand him the job, he had to beat out his competition like everyone else on the roster, and he didn't.

Two things:

 

1) When drafted, he was expected by everyone to either be a lock for A) Long term and immediate answer at QB2 B) The not so distant future replacement to Josh Allen, because you can’t improve accuracy.

 

2) This man would have been a wildly popular message board legend during the Drought.

It was a low risk - high reward situation. I liked the pick and I don’t think Beane regrets it either

He probably won't see the field this year but if you have watched Daniel Jones play you'd know that there is most likely going to be a QB competition with the G-men next training camp.

 

And why wouldn't he have a clear path as the Giants backup?

Sounds like he may see the field. 

 

Danny Dimes is reported to have a neck strain and will likely miss some time. Giants backup is Mike Glennon. Glennon is always likely to see the bench.
