The Buffalo Bills will soon fire quarterback Matt Flynn

The desperate Buffalo Bills signed free-agent quarterback Matt Flynn on Monday.

Clipped by the Oakland Raiders last week, Buffalo inked the 28-year-old Flynn to get a healthy man under center.

Bills rookie E.J. Manuel suffered a sprained right LCL on October 3 and is out indefinitely.

To further compound matters, Kevin Kolb endured a potentially career-ending concussion during the preseason and Thad Lewis is nursing a bummed foot.

Flynn’s tossed 10 touchdowns, against six interceptions, for 1,329 yards since debuting in 2008.

A good decision-maker with solid accuracy on intermediate routes, the former Tiger has also completed 62.3% of his 175 attempts.

However, Flynn possesses feeble arm strength and is a poor fit to operate Nathaniel Hackett’s “K-Gun” offense.

Not exactly brimming with weapons, the Bills are 2-4 and fielding the league’s 17th ranked attack.

Flynn’s completely unfamiliar with Buffalo’s playbook and isn’t prepared to face the Dolphins on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium.

Fortunately for Bills fans, Lewis is expected to take the gridiron this weekend in the “Capital of Latin America.”

The 23-year-old Manuel should resurface on November 9 when Buffalo travels to Kansas City.

Subsequently, the Buffalo Bills will become the third organization in seven months to fire Matt Flynn.
