Bills Sign Chiefs QB Shane Buechele; Patrick Mahomes Informant?

Jokes aside, the Buffalo Bills' newest addition to the practice squad could provide some intellectual help at stopping Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes come playoff time.

The Buffalo Bills have added the 16th and final member to their practice squad on Thursday, as the team signed former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Shane Buechele, per reports from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Buechele, 25, went undrafted in the 2021 NFL Draft after playing his collegiate ball at Texas and SMU. The Chiefs signed him as a undrafted free agent shortly after. And despite being waived and picked up, he was signed to Kansas City's active roster in Nov. 2021, where he stayed up until this offseason.


Though Buechele hasn't appeared in a regular season or playoff game yet, he's still technically a Super Bowl champion and has learned behind Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes along the way. This makes his addition to the Bills an interesting one, as Buechele could now realistically provide the Bills defense with some insight on Mahomes and the Chiefs offense for the regular season and if the two teams meet in the playoffs once again.

The Bills will travel to Arrowhead to face Mahomes and Co. on Sunday, Dec. 10 in one of the most important parts of the season. A few secret tips from Buechele certainly wouldn't hurt, though stopping the MVP quarterback will take much more than that.

Buechele could realistically make his way up to the active roster at some point this season. The Bills only have two quarterbacks currently on the active roster in Josh Allen and Kyle Allen after Matt Barkley was placed on IR. Regardless of whether or not he gets elevated, you can bet the Buffalo coaching staff will try to get the most they can out of Buechele in order to get over the Chiefs and the AFC hump.
