Michael Vick and Alex Smith Still Options?

It seems that the trendy discussion as of late is which quarterback should the Bills draft? Is Ryan Nassib the future at quarterback, or is one of the other rookie signal callers? Of course that isn’t the only option, as there are a few veteran players available. It seems since Doug Marrone has come to Buffalo those discussions have toned down.

Buffalo saw firsthand this season what San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith can do. With Colin Kaepernick leading San Fran all the way to the Super Bowl the likelihood that the 49ers are willing to hold onto Smith’s contract is becoming more and more slim. Smith is a strong quarterback who will succeed with the right tools around him. The 49ers were still a strong team when he was at the helm as well. Is he a flashy guy? Not really, but he does seem to make sense for the Bills.

Then there’s Michael Vick, who comes with a few more questions. First of all, we don’t really know if his time is done in Philadelphia. Sure, Nick Foles seemed to have won the job last season. However, this is Chip Kelly’s team now, and he could decide that Vick is their best option. Even if he is on the move, he wouldn’t exactly be a hot commodity. He struggled mightily when he played this season, but the Eagles do have one of the worst offensive lines in the league. Maybe with a little more protection he could be more successful.

So I leave you again with a poll. Is a veteran still an option in your mind, or should the Bills look to the draft? If its up to you, what path do you pursue?

What path should the Bills follow to get a quarterback?
