As noted in a casual office conversation with Stensation -- who had no idea we were frantically searching for a mid-afternoon post -- the news that Ryan Fitzpatrick was cut by the Bills means that, for now, Tarvaris Jackson is the starting QB in Buffalo!
This was the quote from head coach Doug Marrone at the Jackson re-signed in mid-February with the Bills:
“I spoke with Ryan (Fitzpatrick) and Tarvaris (Jackson) and told them we will have an open competition at the quarterback position – similar to what we will do at all positions on our team heading into our offseason work."
If that was the open competition, it is down to one man. T-Jack is a starter again.
