Could the Bills Be Interested in Josh McCown?

Aaron Kromer, Buffalo's offensive line coach, knows Josh McCown well from his time with the Chicago Bears. In McCown's career reviving season, Kromer served as McCown's offensive coordinator.

The Buffalo Bills currently have one quarterback on their roster. There's no doubt they'll look at veterans on the free agent market, and one new name has recently emerged. Josh McCown, the top free agent quarterback in 2014, was released on Wednesday by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The move frees up over $4 million in salary for Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers will have the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, and it's likely that the team will select Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota.

Could the Bills have interest in McCown? It's possible as the team has a coach that knows the quarterback well. Aaron Kromer, Buffalo's offensive line coach, was McCown's offensive coordinator in 2013 with the Chicago Bears. In eight games with the Bears, McCown completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 1,829 yards. He also threw 13 touchdowns with Chicago, while only throwing one interception. Kromer could certainly give his opinion to the team on whether or not the veteran is a good fit for the Bills.

McCown wouldn't necessarily be an ideal target. He'll be 36 when the 2015 season begins and he's coming off of a disappointing year with Tampa Bay. That said, in a market that includes the likes of Mark Sanchez, Brian Hoyer, Michael Vick and others, the signing is certainly a possibility.
