Jake Fromm Released by Buffalo Bills

Former Georgia quarterback and now Buffalo Bills QB, Jake Fromm has been cut from the 53-man roster for the Buffalo Bills.

Former Georgia quarterback and now Buffalo Bills QB, Jake Fromm has been cut from the 53-man roster for the Buffalo Bills.

This following the 2020 season where Fromm made the roster but was made the COVID QB where he was placed in isolation for the entire season. He practiced alone, he watched film alone, and he worked out alone. 

Now, he's no longer on the roster and will become a free agent.  behind Josh Allen and Mitch Trubisky in Buffalo. 

Fromm being cut from the roster wasn't a surprise considering they signed both Davis Webb and Mitch Trubisky in the offseason. Though considering how fondly their general manager Brandon Beane spoke of Fromm, it probably comes as a surprise to see him being released. 

Beane:

“What a weird year we set Jake Fromm up with, unintentionally. In the COVID world, he’s drafted, and Jake did a heck of a job to have to go through a season sitting away from all of his teammates and every meeting including the quarterback room. In practice, he’s working out in the weight room by himself and coming back for the team periods. He’s literally going through his motions 30 yards away from what Josh and Barkley were doing. You know, what a tough deal for him but he handled it and matured.”

Beane went on to say how excited he was to see him grow, this being his first opportunity to really play in a game. He was already impressed with his game-winning drive and fourth down throw against Detroit. Beane finished by saying “ya know, he’s not the biggest or the strongest guy but he’s got that “it” factor.”

Jake Fromm finished the final preseason game going 10/16 for 87 Yards through the air and had 3 rushes for 17 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Those 17 yards were enough to lead a pass-heavy Bills team in rushing.

The Bills will likely wait around to see if Fromm is picked up by another squad and if not, could potentially sign him to the practice squad.
