    GALESBURG —

    Some opportunities are better than others.

    That’s why ex-Monmouth College quarterback Alex Tanney will report to the Buffalo Bills’ rookie mini-camp next week instead of accepting a tryout invitation from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tanney received the Steelers’ offer, which did not include a contract, shortly after the NFL draft ended last weekend and he was not selected.

    “I’ve been in contact with the Bills’ quarterback coach David Lee all along,” said Tanney. “The Bills were one of the first teams to contact me after the draft.

    “After talking to my agent, we thought this would be a better opportunity for me to earn a roster spot.”

    Tanney is represented by Brian Levy of Goal Line Football Management in Miami.

    Tanney said he made the decision Monday night and informed the Steelers on Tuesday.

    “They were OK with it,” said Tanney. “My agent also represents (Steelers coach) Mike Tomlin, so they have a good relationship.”

    He added, “After talking with my agent and putting quite a lot of thought into it, I think it’s the best decision.”

    Ryan Fitzpatrick is the Bills’ starting quarterback, but the team also lists Brad Smith and Tyler Thigpen on the roster. The Bills signed undrafted rookie Aaron Corp from the University of Richmond following last weekend’s draft.

    Bills general manager Buddy Nix was questioned on why he did not draft a quarterback last weekend and said he would try to obtain a quality backup to Fitzpatrick through free agency.

    Buffalo has announced that veteran quarterback Vince Young, who played for the Philadelphia Eagles last season, would work out for the team today.

    The Bills are coached by Chan Galley, but as quarterbacks coach, Lee has an interesting background. While a member of the Dallas Cowboys staff, he helped develop a 2003 undrafted free agent, Tony Romo, into a pro bowl quarterback in 2006.

    The Bills are no strangers to DIII players. In the mid-1990s, then-GM Marv Levy gave a Carey Bender — a star runningback from his alma mater Coe College — a shot, which found him on the roster during the regular season. Another Coe College star, runningback Fred Jackson, was invited to 2006 camp after playing indoor football and has played five seasons with the Bills.

    Tanney compiled an impressive NCAA Division III resume, finishing his career as the NCAA’s all-time touchdown passing leader with more than 14,000 yards and 157 touchdown passes. The 6-3, 223-pounder won the Melberger Award as the national’s top DIII quarterback in 2009 and was a two-time Gagliardi Trophy finalist. He as named an All-American by The Associated Press and the American Football Coaches Association following his senior season.

    Awesome. If we sign Young though, that doesn't bode well for him.

    Can he even beat out Aaron Corp?

    He's in for a rookie mini-camp, he's not even guaranteed to come to camp at Fisher...

    He's in Buffalo. And he's quite an athlete. Good stuff by Nix. If anything atleast w Nix and his scouts nothing falls through the cracks. I've been hearing of more talent and athletes ever than I have w any other front office group. Looking at San Diego Nix did the same.
