While much of the NFL made free-agency purchases like hysterical contestants on the old "Wheel of Fortune" -- I'll take the handbag from Dicker & Dicker of Beverly Hills for $1,200, Chuck! -- the Buffalo Bills were more judicious.

The Bills finally announced their first signing Friday night, adding former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to their roster as the primary backup for Trent Edwards.

Fitzpatrick, a Harvard grad, started 12 games for the Bengals last year when Carson Palmer got hurt.

Fitzpatrick completed 59.4 percent of his passes for 1,905 yards and eight touchdowns with nine interceptions.
