As it turns out, it was a revolving door of players meeting and working out for the Bills on Monday.

While the team confirmed they met with free agent wide receiver Anquan Boldin, they also reportedly met with former Bills defensive end Leger Douzable along with defensive tackles Roy Miller and Devon Stills.

Late Monday, it was reported the organization met with quarterback Marcus McDade.

Who is Marcus McDade?  Good question.

As Mike Garafolo shares in his tweet, McDade was one of four quarterbacks who backed up current Raider QB Derek Carr at Fresno State.

CBS Sports reported in 2013 McDade, who was recruited as a pro-style quarterback, struggled with the no-huddle attack with the Bulldogs and ultimately transferred out.

Even though he might have left the program, McDade left quite the impression on Carr.

McDade was the quarterback of Germany's Samsung Frankfurt Universe.

There's no debate: Tyrod Taylor is the unquestioned starter heading into 2017.  But it is fair to question what a potential signing could mean for Cardale Jones and Nathan Peterman.

TJ Yates, who was signed by the team in April, is presumably the backup ahead of 2016 4th round pick Jones and 2017 5th rounder Peterman.

Coming into the 2017 draft, Peterman was projected as the most "pro-ready" quarterback in the draft class. Jones, while he has plenty of arm strength, was viewed as a long-term project by the Bills.  

The former Ohio State signal caller was NO. 3 on the depth chart behind Taylor and EJ Manuel last season.
