FF Today's Take:This was a predictable outcome since August, when the Bills lured Orton out of retirement with a two-year, $11 million deal. The ex-Bear, Bronco and Cowboy isn't likely to change the face of the Bills' run-heavy offense, but it does seem like a pretty good bet he'll be a boon for the fantasy fortunes of Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Mike Williams. Any improvement in the passing game figures to also help out C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson as well.
Bills sign QB Kyle Orton-- Fri Aug 29 11:00 pm --
Orton not ready to retire just yet
The Buffalo Bills have agreed to a one-year contract with free-agent quarterback Kyle Orton, a source told ESPN.com.
Buffalo was in search of a veteran backup behind struggling starting quarterback EJ Manuel. Earlier this week the Bills signed Jordan Palmer and promptly released him, which paved the way for Orton.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:The Cowboys released the veteran quarterback in July and while Orton had kicked around the possibility of retirement but in Buffalo he has more than a punchers chance of playing given the uneven play of Manuel this preseason. Jeff Tuel remains on the roster but if a change is made from Manuel during the year it's likely Orton that will get call.
