Bills re-signed QB Tarvaris Jackson to a one-year contract with a maximum value of $4.5 million.
According to coach Doug Marrone, there will be an "open competition" between Jackson and Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job. It could just be lip service, but reliable beat writer Joe Buscaglia wondered aloud on Twitter if T-Jax's return is the "beginning of the end for Ryan Fitzpatrick." It's quite possible a third quarterback will be added in the early rounds of the draft. In theory, Jackson is a better fit for the run-heavy system Marrone preferred at Syracuse. The Bills have made it clear the job won't be handed to Fitzpatrick, who's been far too inconsistent since signing a seven-year, $62.2 million deal in October 2011.
