The Buffalo Bills are going to add a quarterback to their roster. GM Doug Whaley admitted so on Thursday.
Currently, Buffalo has Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel under contract for 2016 but both players are entering the final year of their respective deals. Manuel is most certainly entering his final season with the Bills so it's important for Buffalo to find another option behind Taylor. One option for the Bills is to add a quarterback to the roster through the draft.
Hackenberg confirmed meeting with the Bills in an interview.
From BuffaloBills.com: “I had an unofficial with the Bills yesterday, but everyone kind of gets to talking in that meeting,” said Hackenburg. “I think it went well. It was good to just start talking to people and talking some ball. So it was good.”
Buffalo's owner, Terry Pegula, is a Penn State alum and he's certainly very familiar with the quarterback. Hackenberg could be drafted as early as day two of the draft or early in day three. He has the skill-set to succeed in the NFL but he'd need time to develop on the bench in the NFL.
Hogan has already been linked to the Bills.
Hogan's meeting with the Bills may have confirmed the report that the Bills have interest in the QB. Although many meetings take place at the combine, Buffalo asked Hogan about plays and concepts in their meeting.
“It went well,” said Hogan. “It was nice to sit down and talk football, talk ‘X’s and ‘O’s. It’s something I really enjoy. It was nice to draw up some plays and concepts and talk actual football, the stuff that matters. I came away from it very happy.”
Hogan is looked at as a day three option in the draft.null
