Buffalo Bills acquire quarterback Thaddeus Lewis from Detroit Lions



The Buffalo Bills are in desperate need of help at the most critical position in the NFL. With both of their top-2 quarterbacks  injured and possibly out for Week 1, the Bills are scrambling to find help anywhere they can, and after signing draft-bust Matt Leinart on Sunday, the team acquired fourth-year quarterback Thaddeus Lewis from the Detroit Lions in exchange for linebacker Chris White:



If Kevin Kolb remains out with injury after suffering another concussion, E.J. Manuel, a rookie, might have to start his first game unless his knee prevents it. If he can’t play, they’l have to go with either Leinert, Lewis or undrafted QB Jeff Tuel.

Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone is still is holding out hope that Manuel will recover from knee surgery in time to start the season opener versus the New England Patriots. This is certainly an unfavorable spot for a first-year HC.

  • Ted Heath

    It’s all a plan it has been from the start as doug has got it all on getting 6 QB’s all on the field at once to confuse the defense into thinking which will have the ball it’s the hide the ball in the glove trick oh wait that Baseball sorry. I know my team will be the best in the east this year I love ny buffalo bills and I have total confidence in my head coach and his staff.

      As I do too, Ted, but I still have doubts with our QB’S situation! EJ, starter after him we have Tuel(?),a guy that has promise against lesser knowns, not proven players. I don’t know how or if he will be good, nobody does. I said it from the beginning, Ruel has not played against anyone who matters and will not jump to support him until he shows he deserves to play on our team! GO BILLS!!
