What was expected to be a three-way training camp competition to be the Buffalo Bills starting quarterback has suddenly become a two-man race. The Bills announced the release of veteran quarterback Tarvaris Jackson on Monday night.

After Jackson finished third in another three-way quarterback competition with the Seattle Seahawks last season, the Bills acquired him prior to the start of the season in exchange for a seventh-round pick. Jackson did not see any playing time, however, in his only season with the Bills.

Jackson went into organized team activities as the only returning quarterback from last season’s Bills roster. The Bills’ quarterback roster now consists of one veteran in free-agent addition Kevin Kolb, who signed an incentive-laden two-year contract this offseason, and two rookies: first-round pick EJ Manuel and undrafted free-agent signing Jeff Tuel.
