Bills Sign QB Josh Johnson, Cut K Billy Cundiff

The Buffalo Bills announced the signing of veteran QB Josh Johnson along with the release of K Billy Cundiff Tuesday.

Starting QB Tyrod Taylor is dealing with injuries and hasn’t been 100 percent healthy all season. The Bills have EJ Manuel as their backup, but it couldn’t hurt to bring in some more depth in the event Johnson were to miss some time.

Johnson, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2012. Since then, Johnson has played for a number of teams including the 49ers, Browns, Bengals, Chargers, and Jets before signing on with the Colts a few weeks ago.

The Colts released Johnson on Monday, so it obviously didn’t take him long to secure a new opportunity.

Johnson hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since the 2013 season while playing for the Bengals.

Cundiff, 35, signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Drake back in 2005. Since then Cundiff has played for several teams including the Buccaneers, Packers, Saints, Falcons, Chiefs, Lions, Ravens, Redskins, 49ers, Jets and most recently for the Browns.

The Bills signed him to a contract last week, but he didn’t attempt a single kick in Week 5’s game.

In 2014, Cundiff converted 22 of 29 field goal attempts this season, but was just one of three from 50 yards or more.
