Earlier today the Buffalo Bills signed TJ Yates, the classic back-up QB who will never threaten your mediocre starter for his job. No matter how poorly Tyrod Taylor plays this year, nobody will be calling the drive-time sports radio show to call for Yates to take his job.
In 5 seasons in the NFL, Yates has completed 58% of his passes with 6 TDs, 8 INTs, and 5 fumbles. Even with those numbers, Yates has more playoff wins than any Buffalo Bills QB in the last 22 years. I wouldn’t say Yate is a guy that looks good in shorts, but I think he’s an excellent clipboard holder. I can’t wait for him to show veteran leadership and teach the young guys a thing or two about breaking down game film.
