The Buffalo Bills don't have interest in signing free-agent quarterback Nick Foles, a source close to the team told The Buffalo News Thursday.
A report from Bleacher Report listed the Bills on a short list of NFL teams that are the likeliest to sign Foles, who was released by the Los Angeles Rams Wednesday. The other teams were the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings.
By all indications, the Bills appear comfortable entering training camp -- which begins Friday at St. John Fisher College with all players due to report and go through conditioning testing -- with the three quarterbacks on their roster: Starter Tyrod Taylor and backups E.J. Manuel and Cardale Jones.
General Manager Doug Whaley has made no secret about the tremendous amount of faith he has in Manuel as a backup. He has gone as far as to describe him as the best No. 2 QB in the NFL.
Jones, the Bills' fourth-round draft pick in May, is extremely raw and figures to have almost no chance of seeing the field during the regular season.
Many NFL observers think the best fit for Foles would be backing up Tony Romo in Dallas.
