Report: Buffalo Bills Considering Starting Cardale Jones Next Year

At least one member of the Buffalo Bills organization thinks Cardale Jones could be the team's starting quarterback in 2017.

The Bills are currently trying to figure out what to do at the quarterback position. Last year's starter Tyrod Taylor could be a casualty because of his contract, and it is uncertain which direction the team will go in if they part ways with him.

According to a report from the Buffalo News, Bills GM Doug Whaley is intrigued by turning the reins over to second-year pro Cardale Jones. Jones played in one game as a rookie in 2016, completing 6-of-11 passes for 96 yards and an interception in the season-finale against the Jets.

From the Buffalo News:

Jones, last year's fourth-round pick from Ohio State, has plenty of talent, but only time will tell whether he has acquired much-needed maturity to understand the amount of time and effort it takes to prepare to play his best.

The Bills could also elect to draft a QB with the 10th overall pick come April, or go the free agent/trade route.

Jones was the team's fourth-round pick in 2016.
