Gailey to evaluate Bills QB situation

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports that Bills head coach Chan Gailey acknowledges that the Bills need to take a close look at their quarterback situation and get the best possible player for that spot.

At a media session on Thursday, Gailey remarked that the NFL is now a QB-driven league, and the Bills must respond to that trend.

"It hasn't always been that way," Gailey said in the report, "but it seems to have become more so in the last decade. You have to have a quality player there."

He declined to say whether the answer is to replace current Bills QBs Trent Edwards , Ryan Fitzpatrick , both or neither. He also wouldn't commit to scoping out the draft for a QB prospect or playing the free agency market, although all options appear to be on the table.

"I think that decision will play out once you get a complete evaluation of the guys in the draft, a complete evaluation of the guys you've got, and a complete evaluation of the guys out there available in free agency or on the trading block," he said. "It's too early for me to say."

Bills looking for defensive coordinator

Bills new head coach Chan Gailey spent his first day on the job trying to put together a coaching staff and according to the Buffalo News, finding a defensive coordinator is at the top of his priority list.

Gailey said he had some assistants in mind, but he declined to say who they are.

Herm Edwards, the former Kansas City Chiefs head coach who hired Gailey as offensive coordinator in 2008, said finding a guy who has the same vision as Gailey is a must.
