Bills sign QB Kyle Orton
Orchard Park, N.Y. (AP) -- A person familiar with the deal has confirmed the Buffalo Bills have agreed to sign veteran quarterback Kyle Orton to a one-year contract in addressing a key need behind starter EJ Manuel.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Saturday because the Bills have not announced the deal. ESPN first reported the agreement Friday night.
Orton is an eight-year veteran, who spent the past two seasons with Dallas before being cut in mid-July.
He was Chicago's fourth-round pick in 2005, and also played in Denver and Kansas City. He has a 35-35 career record.
The signing was Buffalo's latest quarterback shuffle during a week in which Jordan Palmer was signed and released, and after Thad Lewis also was cut.
Buffalo opens the season at Chicago on Sept. 7.
