The Buffalo Bills have addressed their quarterback depth by signing free agent T.J. Yates.

The sixth-year player meets the Bills’ need to add an experienced backup behind returning starter Tyrod Taylor. Yates did not play a snap in his one and only season with Miami last year.

Overall, he’s played in 18 regular games and has a 4-3 record in seven starts, all during four seasons with Houston. He also went 1-1 in starting two playoff games for the Texans during his rookie season in 2011.

The Bills also have 2016 fourth-round pick Cardale Jones and first-year Liberty product Josh Woodrum at quarterback.
