Source: Bills will workout QB Landry Jones
By James Walker
The Buffalo Bills continue their diligent quest to find a long-term solution at quarterback in April's NFL draft.
Last week the Bills hosted a pair of private workouts with quarterback prospects Geno Smith and EJ Manuel. Buffalo also will hold its third private workout for a quarterback this week with Oklahoma's Landry Jones, a source tells ESPN.com's AFC East blog.
The Bills are in desperate need for a quarterback after releasing former starter Ryan Fitzpatrick in the offseason. The only two quarterbacks currently on the roster are veteran journeyman Tarvaris Jackson and the inexperienced Aaron Corp.
Buffalo holds the No. 8 overall pick in the draft. The Bills have shown interest in first-round quarterback prospects such as Smith, as well as potential second-round prospects such as Manuel, Jones and Ryan Nassib.
Jones put up huge numbers at Oklahoma. He threw for more than 4,000 yards in three consecutive seasons. Last year, Jones recorded 4,267 yards, 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions for the Sooners, who went 10-3.
