Nall, Bills agree to three-year deal

Quarterback Craig Nall agreed to a contract with the Buffalo Bills, according to his agent. With Nall headed toward Buffalo, it may be a strong indication that Brett Favre plans to return to the Green Bay Packers.

Nall, who visited the Bills on Friday, is set to sign a three-year deal, his agent Robb Nelson said. Nall will presumably get a chance to be Buffalo's top backup behind J.P. Losman or Kelly Holcomb. Both Losman and Holcomb started for the Bills last year, but it is unlikely that Buffalo will keep both on their roster this season, leaving room for Nall as a top backup.

It also is very possible that Nall, who is a good friend and hunting partner with Favre, knows that Favre plans to return to Green Bay. Nall likely figured that if Favre indeed returns for a 16th season, he probably would have remained no better than the No. 3 position behind Aaron Rodgers. Nall has spent the last four seasons as Green Bay's No. 3 quarterback and has been seeking a chance to be a top backup, or starter. He visited with the Minnesota Vikings early last week, then traveled to meet with the Bills.

Nall has played in six games for the Packers, completing 23 of 33 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns (passer rating of 139.4). He did not play in any games in 2005.
