Matt Barkley says he's visiting the Bills
By James Walker
First, it was the private workout with the Buffalo Bills. Now, it's time for a visit.
It’s safe to say the Bills have interest in former USC quarterback Matt Barkley. About a week after traveling to Los Angeles to hold a private workout with the quarterback prospect, Barkley tweeted that he is heading to Cleveland and Buffalo to visit the Browns and Bills, respectively.
Barkley's draft stock has been all over the place. Some feel he is a possibility for the Bills at No. 8 overall, while others think he's a second-round pick. Buffalo also holds the No. 41 overall pick, which is where the team most likely will be looking for a quarterback.
The Bills recently signed veteran quarterback Kevin Kolb to a two-year contract. Kolb will compete with Tarvaris Jackson for the Bills' starting job in training camp.
