Source: Bills to hold private workout for Matt Barkley

3/30/2013

Former USC quarterback Matt Barkley turned some heads last week with his pro day performance -- and teams are already showing significant interest.

A source tells ESPN.com that the Buffalo Bills will host a private workout with Barkley and former USC teammate and receiver Robert Woods on Monday. The Bills, who hold the No. 8 overall pick, have needs at both positions.

Barkley is coming off a solid pro day at which he completed 55 of 60 passes in front of NFL scouts, executives and media. Barkley was a four-year starter at USC and answered many questions about the right shoulder injury he suffered last November.

Buffalo cut starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on March 12, which left the team thin at quarterback. The Bills’ current depth chart includes veteran journeyman Tarvaris Jackson and the inexperienced Aaron Corp.

Barkley will be the fifth quarterback to have worked out for Buffalo in the past two weeks. The Bills also had workouts with West Virginia’s Geno Smith, Florida State’s EJ Manuel, Oklahoma’s Landry Jones and Tennessee’s Tyler Bray.
