he Buffalo Bills are in for an interesting 2015 season, to say the very least.


The Bills have a new head coach at the helm in former New York Jets man Rex Ryan, as well as the untried and untested Tyrod Taylor in as their starting quarterback and LeSean McCoy in the backfield after his trade from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Taylor beat out E.J Manuel and Matt Cassel to get the starting job in Buffalo, which led to Cassel being cut as the team trimmed down their roster, but somehow, the former Vikings quarterback is back in town.

Cassel's Back

The Bills cut Cassel last week, because he was too expensive to keep as a backup. They have apparently found a way to make the 33-year old more affordable.

According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, the Bills have brought the veteran backup back into the fold at Ralph Wilson stadium.

No terms were announced, but there’s no way it was for the same $4.15 million he was due to make this season. The fact they gave him a $500,000 roster bonus already may have helped the negotiation along.

Rex Ryan revealed that Cassel will immediately move into second spot on the depth chart behind Taylor, which relegates Manuel to third string as Buffalo prepares to open the season by hosting Indianapolis on Sunday.

''As I've said from Day 1, we like all three of the guys and we never wanted to lose anybody obviously, so that's why we made the decision we did,'' Ryan said, referring to Cassel's comeback
