Bills To Start Thaddeus Lewis, Signing Dennis Dixon To Their Practice Squad


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that QB Pat White is leaving Buffalo to workout with the Raiders on Tuesday.

  • Meanwhile, Mike Rodak reports that the Bills have signed QB Thaddeus Lewis to their active roster.
  • Jeff Russo of WKBW reports that the Bills are expected to sign QB Dennis Dixon to practice squad.
  • Ian Rapoport has confirmed that the Bills are signing Dixon to their practice squad.

Buffalo has announced that Lewis will start their Week 6 matchup against the Bengals.

Last night, Jason La Canfora sounded convinced that the Bills were signing White, but for whatever reason, he visit with the Raiders regarding this backup job.


Jason La Canfora reports that the Bills are signing former Redskins QB Pat White.

This comes just minutes after the Bills lost out on bidding for Josh Freeman, who signed with the Minnesota Vikings.

With E.J. Manuel expected to be out for about six weeks, we’ll have to see if they if White is able to push undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel to the bench.


Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports is “hearing” that free agent QB Pat White will work out for the Bills on Saturday.

The Bills are expected to be without first-round pick E.J. Manuel for at least a month following the LCL sprain he suffered Thursday night. This leaves undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel as the team’s starter for now.

White has generated almost no interest on the open market since his release from the Redskins back in September. After a poor start to his career in Miami, White seemed to be a much more polished signal caller during a preseason stint with Washington.

There has been speculation that the Bills could be an option for Josh Freeman, but they do not have a workout scheduled with him as of now.
