Report: Buffalo Bills interested in Nick Foles

Foles would compete for the backup job in Buffalo.

The Buffalo Bills may be looking to another quarterback to their roster before the start of training camp. According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Bills have interest in Nick Foles.

If signed, Foles would compete for the backup job behind Tyrod Taylor. The 27 year old quarterback is coming off of a season in which he started 11 games with the Rams. During that time, Foles completed 56.4 percent of his passes for 2,052 yards with seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions. His best season came in 2013 when he had a passer rating of 119.2. Foles threw for 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions that season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Although EJ Manuel's contract is fully guaranteed this season, his roster spot would be in danger if the Bills were to add Foles. Manuel is entering the final year of his contract, whereas Cardale Jones was drafted by the Bills in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft. Jones is considered a project, but it's unlikely that the team would place him on their practice squad and risk losing him to another team.
