Why Mike White Would Be A Perfect Fit As QB2 In Buffalo
The Buffalo Bills already have their franchise quarterback in Josh Allen, but what they need is a solid backup with starter potential.
Though not a top need in Bills’ town, it is definitely there though in the shadows.
As of now Buffalo has Case Keenum as their second-string QB, they acquired him from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a late round draft pick. The 34-year-old agreed to his contract being restructured as part of the trade, he made $3.5M in 2022 instead of $6M that was on the original contract.
Keenum is a free agent this upcoming offseason. 2022 featured him appearing in two games, going 2-for-7 (28.6%) passing.
Overall Keenum did very little in the time he had, with that Buffalo will most likely let him walk in free agency. The Bills will then need a QB2 and Mike White would be a perfect fit for them.
White, 27, is a free agent this upcoming offseason and is expected to sign around a 2-year deal worth around $12M. Mike White can be a starter on a lower team in need of a quarterback, but would fit perfectly in Buffalo as a backup. He has spent his whole playing career in New Jersey with the Jets (2021-2022), in that time he brought the team to a 2-5 record.
It has to be mentioned though that the Jets did play white while he was hurt on multiple occasions, leading to poor performance and losses. When Mike White is fully healthy he is a force to be reckoned with, and it is scary.
In his two wins White has thrown for 715 yards, 6 TDs - 2 INTs, 59/73 (80.8%) passing.
Bringing White on adds a solid second option for Buffalo and it would also allow him to learn off Josh Allen.
