A person with direct knowledge of the discussions confirmed Morrow’s agreement to The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not announced the agreement, which was first reported by NFL Network.

The 28-year-old Morrow is a seven-year veteran who started 12 games last season for the Philadelphia Eagles while handling the on-field play-calling duties. Morrow is expected to fill a backup role behind starters Terrel Bernard and Matt Milano, who is set to return after missing much of last season with a right leg injury.

The Bills needed depth at the position with Tyrel Dodson and Tyler Matakevich eligible to become free agents, and following the retirement of A.J. Klein.

Morrow was an undrafted free agent out of Division III Greenville, and spent his first five seasons with the Raiders, including 2021, which he missed due to an ankle injury. He also had 17 starts with Chicago in 2022. Morrow has seven sacks, three interceptions and 43 tackles for losses in 94 career games, including 58 starts.
