Fromm signed his rookie contract with the Bills on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
The former Georgia quarterback is now under contract for the next four years in Buffalo. Josh Allen is the face of the franchise and only entering his third year, so Fromm will serve as a backup and developmental quarterback for the Bills, though how he fits in with Matt Barkley -- a guy that works well with Allen -- in the same room remains to be seen. We could see the Bills keeping three quarterbacks and the Fromm beginning his career as the No. 3 option.
The Bills selected Fromm in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 167th overall.
The Bills had a need at backup quarterback behind Josh Allen, even with Matt Barkley still under contract for 2020, and Fromm offers the team developmental upside at the position. The Georgia product was knocked for his modest size (6-foot-2, 219 pounds), arm strength and athleticism in the pre-draft processes, but he showcased significant talent during his three-year starting career at Georgia. It's somewhat of a surprise that Fromm fell all the way to the fifth round, considering his touted ability to read the field and his record of success with the Bulldogs, but as a result he'll get the benefit of developing as a backup in Buffalo, which boasts a solid O-line and receiver corps.
