Source: Bills will work out QB Matt Barkley
By James Walker
The Buffalo Bills' journey around the country to find a starting quarterback in this year’s NFL draft will make its next stop in Los Angeles.
Buffalo will hold a private workout Monday with former USC quarterback Matt Barkley and former USC wide receiver Robert Woods, a source tells ESPN.com's AFC East blog. The Bills hold the No. 8 overall pick and have needs at both positions. Buffalo cut former starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on March 12 and is looking for a second threat opposite 1,000-yard receiver Steve Johnson.
The Bills are working out Barkley at a good time. He's coming off a solid pro day where he completed 55 of 60 passes last week. Barkley also answered many questions about the right shoulder injury he suffered last November.
Barkley will be the fifth quarterback Buffalo has privately worked out in the past two weeks. The Bills also held workouts with West Virginia's Geno Smith, Florida State's EJ Manuel, Oklahoma's Landry Jones and Tennessee's Tyler Bray.
