[BN] Blitz newsletter: AJ McCarron has 'a lot of confidence in his ability'

At least one person believes the Bills already have a franchise quarterback on the roster.

AJ McCarron is coming to Buffalo with the mindset "that he's going in there to win the job and ultimately keep it," according to Tom Savage, the former general manager of the Cleveland Browns and director of player personnel for the Baltimore Ravens who covered McCarron's college career as a broadcast analyst for the Crimson Tide Sports Network. "AJ's got a lot of confidence in his ability."

Vic Carucci sought insight on McCarron from Savage and CBS NFL studio analyst Phil Simms for the latest installment in our Path to the Passer series of in-depth features on potential quarterback options for the Bills."He's kind of built for Buffalo," Simms said.

Bargain shopping: Despite Beane's statement last week that the team is "very low on money," the Bills are hosting former Bengals center Russell Bodine on a free agent visit.

Anquan Boldin claims he could still play: "Definitely," the 37-year-old wide receiver who retired from the Bills last August said at a recent charity basketball game. “If I wanted to, I know I could.”
