Kenny Guiton to Attend Buffallo Bills Camp

Good (official) news, everyone! Kenny Guiton will get a chance in the NFL after all! After being passed over in the 2014 NFL draft, Kenny Guiton has accepted an invite to this week's Buffalo Bills camp:

The career backup and former recruiting afterthought only needed 139 passes in his career to ascend to one of the most beloved players in recent memory. Guiton's greatest moment came in 2012 against Purdue, when he came in for an injured Braxton Miller to lead the Buckeyes to a come-from-behind victory that preserved the Buckeyes' eventual undefeated season:

Looks like we'll have to wait another decade before Coach Guiton returns to Columbus, as he'll no doubt bring multiple Super Bowl championships to the Buffalo Bills.

Just when I thought Buffalo screwed up their offseason they go and totally redeem themselves.

Go get 'em Kenny G.

Wow I thought with everything he brings to the table he was worth way more then a camp invite. Looks like we all get our wish and he will  be back here as a grad assit. I know we would have rather seen him have success in the NFL but some of us are greedy and he will help our team tremendously.

Wasn't even given a UDFA contract but a camp invite tells us Im not the one that gave up on him. I love the dude for what he has done. Maybe you do not know how undrafted free agency and camp invites work? His chance is superbly slim now.

I understand how it all works, and that it means the odds are low. It's one thing to note the low odds, it's another to proclaim he won't beat them. Out of all the players with camp invites, K. Guiton would be about the last I'd bet against.

No non-starting qb with less then 140 career passes have never been drafted in this league....but they see something in him, and i live in Buffalo and will go on record as saying that he will make this team....

AMEN!  Just because Kenny didn't play regularly, look at what he did.  Led OSU to the comeback and eventual OT win against Purdon't; set an Ohio State TD pass record against FAMU; led Ohio State to an offensive explosion against Cal on the road.

With a resume like that, I would NOT bet against this young man.  Give him a chance to be a backup QB.  He may surprise many and become a starter, you never know.

You can take the man out of Ohio, but you cannot take the Ohio out of the man. Go Bucks!!

G. You deserve whatever fruits the NFL has to offer. Dont' squander it. When you are done there, come home to the 'Bus.

Sorry, Kenny. I did my best to get you back to Htown. Good luck. The Texans will be missing out on the best QB in the BIG10, last year.

I'd put him maybe at 3, behind Braxton and Connor Cook.

Guiton to Watson sounds pretty good to me.

I'm still pissed that Purdue game was blacked out for me...

Either way, congrats to #13 - he certainly deserves a shot at the next level.

Another good landing spot for him to legitimately compete...I bet Kenny gets at least 1 start this year. 

 

Really happy he's getting a look.

Does that mean when.coach goes in and beats out EJ for the starting job that every time he comes out the tunnel they will play sweet jazz music?

I can not believe my Texans did not work to sign a Houston kid in free agency.  Dang it.  He had an outside shot at making the team in Houston, I thought.

Best of luck in Buffalo, Guiton.

seafus26's picture

Me too. I copied and pasted Kenny's OSU bio and sent it to the Texans. They actually responded to my suggestion that they sign him with the news Buffalo already had. That response was before anyone had reported his signing with Bills, so maybe they'd been looking into it and got beat to the punch.

The Browns just released Vince Young and are in need of some QB depth!!  I would buy a browns jersey with Guitons name on the back in two seconds.  I know, wishful thinking.

...and every member of Buckeye Nation just listed the Bills as their "other" favorite team, at least as long as Guiton's on the roster. Go get 'em Kenny, and enjoy the ride.

EDIT, because apparently I didn't get across what I meant: We all have a favorite team, right? And with the exception of Unky Buck, it ain't the Bills, right? So, by giving Kenny G a shot, we're now all secretly (or not so secretly) rooting for Kenny G to succeed, and by extension that means we want the Bills to succeed. See, get it?

Glad to see a Buckeye back on the Bills. Clements, Whitner, Youboty come most readily to mind when I think about how many Bucks have played for my Bills.

Couldn't have asked for a better player to go to Buffalo! #BillsMafia

I am putting this here: If and when Kenny G is on the field, the Bills will have a legitimate chance to win the game, no matter the time left or the score.

Good luck Smooth Jazz. We already miss you.

Congrats to one of the most beloved QBs in OSU history...I'll never forget Kenny guiding that 2 minute drill/OT comeback against Purdue in 2012 to save the undefeated season.

There goes the Browns pick that they get from Buffalo.  Once they realize what they have in Kenny G, they will be a lock for the Super Bowl.  Looks like it'll be the #32 pick

I know this will sound odd, and heck I love that Purdue ending and was always a Kenny G supporter, but,,,when you get to the last couple seconds and see the look on Hope's face and know that just a few weeks later he was out of a job, you wonder if they had held on and won in that last minute, would he have kept his job rather than living in Mammoth Cave, KY and begging for a job anywhere

like I said I know it is an odd feeling but I almost feel sorry for Hope, they hold on they end up 4-4 in conference and 7-5 in the regular season add in a 3 point loss to eventual MCG players ND a couple weeks earlier and he could have easily been 8-4
