Bills' T.J. Yates: Winning weak battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates is expected to hit training camp as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor and ahead of Nathan Peterman and Cardale Jones, The Buffalo News reports.

Reportedly, only Taylor has looked ready to run Rick Dennison's offense entering the season. That's been the case all along, but the Bills are hoping someone will step up and give the coaching staff some comfort should Taylor suffer an injury. So far that's not really happening, but Yates has more experience as a pro and also has experience with Dennison, putting him in the second spot in the pecking order for now, though the situation could remain fluid as the youngsters behind him get more chances.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates signed with the Bills on Monday.

Yates' deal in Buffalo comes after he visited with the team on Friday, setting the stage for him to come on board. Although Yates didn't appear in a game last season, he has featured on 18 occasions since entering the league in 2011. At 29 years old, he'll provide the Bills with a veteran presence behind starter Tyrod Taylor and rising second-year pro Cardale Jones.

T.J. Yates: Visits with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates made a free-agent visit to the Bills on Friday.

Yates signed with the Dolphins in December after Ryan Tannehill went down with a knee injury, but ultimately didn't make an appearance for Miami. Nonetheless, the 29-year-old boasts seven starts from his 18 career games played, which makes him a candidate to fill a backup role elsewhere. At the moment, second-year pro Cardale Jones is pegged as Buffalo's second-stringer behind Tyrod Taylor.

Dolphins' T.J. Yates: Signing with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates is signing with the Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Yates will join the Dolphins to provide the team with quarterback depth in the wake of the knee injury starting signal-caller Ryan Tannehill suffered in Week 14. It's not clear how long Tannehill will be out, but Yates will serve as the Dolphins' backup quarterback behind Matt Moore for as long as Tannehill is sidelined.

T.J. Yates: Cleared of injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Yates (knee) has been cleared to return after tearing his ACL last season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Yates remains unsigned, but could pick up attraction now that he has been fully cleared from the season-ending injury. With several teams in need of quarterback depth, the 29-year-old could find his way onto an NFL roster before the regular season begins.
