The Buffalo Bills took the first step in restocking their quarterback position by agreeing to a two-year contract with A.J. McCarron.

The 27-year-old spent the past four seasons backing up Andy Dalton in Cincinnati after being selected by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2014 draft.

McCarron's signing on Wednesday came a few hours after the NFL's free-agency period opened http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/al-woods-jersey , and five days after Buffalo traded three-year starter Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland. The trade left 2017 fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman as the only quarterback on Buffalo's roster.

General manager Brandon Beane said he intended to add a veteran quarterback this offseason to provide experience.

With two picks in each of the first three rounds of the draft, Buffalo also is expected to target one of the highly touted quarterback prospects.

McCarron was a two-time national champion at Alabama but appeared in just 11 games in Cincinnati, mostly in mop-up duties. McCarron did start the final three games of the 2015 season and led the Bengals to the playoffs after Dalton broke his thumb.

Against Pittsburgh in the wild-card playoff game, McCarron had the Bengals in position to win their first playoff game since the 1990 season. Jeremy Hill however lost a fumble, and penalties on Vontaze Burfict and Adam "Pacman" Jones set up the Steelers for a winning field goal in the final seconds.

Though he missed his rookie season because of a sore passing shoulder Kentavius Street Jersey , McCarron was allowed to become an unrestricted free agent after an independent arbitrator ruling last month. McCarron was also nearly traded to Cleveland last season, but the deal fell through after the Browns failed to submit the paperwork on time.

Nick Foles made the right choice when he picked the Eagles over the Buccaneers last season.

Foles has a Super Bowl MVP award to show for a tough decision that came down to familiarity. Now he'll get a chance to play against Tampa Bay on Sunday because Carson Wentz still isn't ready to return from knee surgery.

"It was close," Foles said about choosing to return to Philadelphia to play behind Wentz instead of going to the Buccaneers to be the backup for Jameis Winston. "My wife and I were weighing all options. She was pregnant. We decided Philly was our home once before, we loved it, we loved the people Tomas Hertl Jersey , we loved the city, and what better place to bring our daughter into the world."

Foles had committed to Arizona State in high school when Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter was the coach of the Sun Devils. But the Philly connection won out.

He is 6-1 filling in since Wentz tore two knee ligaments in Week 14 last year. That record includes playoffs and the final regular-season game, in which Foles played only one quarter.

Foles was 19 of 34 for 117 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Philadelphia's 18-12 win over Atlanta last Thursday.

Wentz had surgery to repair a torn ACL and LCL last Dec. 13 and hasn't been medically cleared to play.

"As training camp progressed, his strength Montae Nicholson Jersey , lower body strength, his upper body strength, all trending in the right direction," coach Doug Pederson said.

Notes: Wentz, WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) http://www.officialredwings.com/authentic-adidas-dylan-larkin-jersey , RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) and WR Shelton Gibson (knee) were limited in Wednesday's practice. ... The Eagles signed WR Kamar Aiken and release WR Markus Wheaton. Aiken was released among the final cuts. Pederson said: "Kamar gives us depth. He gives us experience. He gives us some special teams availability. It's a good fit."
