We’ve reached the point in the NFL offseason where there are rumors based on other rumors.
Tony Romo has been one of the main storylines even before the season ended, as the Dallas Cowboys have to find something to do with the 37-year-old quarterback now that they seem ready to commit to Dak Prescott. That likely means releasing or trading Romo, and the Denver Broncos have been pegged as a possible destination if that happens.
And it seems the Buffalo Bills could be interested in that scenario, too.
Benjamin Allbright, a reporter and radio host in Denver, reported Thursday that the Bills could have interest in current Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian if Romo lands in the Mile High City. The 25-year-old threw for 3,401 yards and 18 touchdowns with 10 interceptions in 14 starts last season, and he would be familiar with the Bills’ offense, as offensive coordinator Rick Dennison was the OC in Denver just this past season.
That leaves the question as to what Buffalo would do with quarterback Tyrod Taylor, and Allbright reported the Bills wouldn’t necessarily part ways with him if Siemian came to town.
If everything goes according to the Bills’ plan, they’d definitely have to weigh their options. Taylor is the better quarterback, but if Buffalo picks up his 2017 option, the team will be on the hook for nearly $31 million in guaranteed money. Siemian, on the other hand, has a salary-cap hit of $650,000 in 2017 and $720,000 in 2018.
The Bills have until March 11 to decide what to do with Taylor’s option.
