The Buffalo Bills are still searching for a quarterback of the future, so we take a look back at the top five to ever play the position for the franchise.

The Buffalo Bills have played host to many quarterbacks over the years. Some have been great and some have been bad.

Throughout the history of the franchise, there have been a handful of great and historic names. These names have come to shape the greatness that the Buffalo Bills have achieved. This greatness has been derived from past AFL championships and Hall of Fame caliber players.

Today’s Bills quarterbacks in AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman have a shared bloodline with great QBs of the past. Names such as Jack Kemp and Jim Kelly have been noted as some of the greatest of all time. The Buffalo faithful have endured what seems to be a lifetime of losing.

With the new culture that has been accepted by all the players and transpired on the field, there is no doubt that the top 5 QBs for the Buffalo Bills will be completely different in a few years to come. Head coach Sean McDermott has set the bar last season and whatever QB gets the call this season will have to live up to the previously held expectations.

This list showcases the top 5 quarterbacks who have come to define the franchise to what it is today.
