Bills' T.J. Yates: Demoted to No. 3?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rookie Nathan Peterman will serve as the No. 2 quarterback Thursday against the Eagles, and for now it looks like he's passed Yates for the top backup job behind Tyrod Taylor, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Yates doesn't offer much upside as a veteran who's never really shined in his two previous NFL stops, while Peterman is a rookie picked by the new regime and one that's starting to make a nice impression. The fact the Bills have a good amount of rebuilding to do seems to favor Peterman as well, though at least Yates still has time -- and three preseason games -- to reclaim his status.

Bills' T.J. Yates: Ho-hum preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates, who entered Thursday's preseason game after starter Tyrod Taylor departed, completed six of 11 attempts for 48 yards. He didn't have a touchdown or interception, and finished with a 65.7 rating.

Yates is firmly ahead of No. 3 Nathan Peterman, a rookie, but Peterman did outperform him in this one. Then again, Peterman probably was going against lesser Vikings defenders since it was the end of the game. Unless Yates gets badly beaten in the remaining preseason games, he'll start the season as the team's No. 2 quarterback.

Bills' T.J. Yates: One less man to beat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills traded Cardale Jones to the Chargers on Wednesday, leaving just Yates and Nathan Peterman as the quarterbacks in camp behind starter Tyrod Taylor.

Yates was always expected to be the team's No. 2 as the Bills enter training camp, but with a new coaching staff in town he also wasn't guaranteed to leave camp that way either. Now, however, the Bills seem set with their three guys, and Yates will only have to hold off Peterman to hold the backup job heading into the regular season.

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.

Bills' T.J. Yates: Inks deal with Bills
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.
