Manuel is expected to compete with three other quarterbacks in what the team is calling an open quarterback competition, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said coordinator Greg Roman on Monday, "I think all four are doing a very nice job in our meetings and in communicating ... everyone will have a chance to work with the first team and everybody's going to have ample opportunity to put their best foot forward. When we start evaluating then we'll start to play around with things a little bit, who's with the first team the one day, and the next day, and so forth. We'll have a good feel for it as we go."

EJ Manuel: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Coach Rex Ryan said on WGR Radio 550 on Friday that it will be an open competition between Manuel and the other Buffalo quarterbacks, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said the new coach. "Its a competition and whoever earns the job will be the guy thats out there. We have some talented guys and well see what happens. You bring in a veteran like Matt Cassel. Hes done some pretty good things in this league. Hes got that veteran presence about him. With EJ back there just going into his third year I really believe EJ is going to improve with his fundamentals having (quarterbacks coach) David Lee here. I love the fact that hes a gym rat and hes smart. With our offense being multiple well be able to get out of bad plays, so the mental part of it all of the quarterbacks we have should be able to handle that."

Coach Rex Ryan emphasized Wednesday that he'll continue to look to beef up the quarterback spot this offseason, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Ryan, I think in an ideal world youd have a veteran quarterback with a young quarterback. I dont think theres any doubt about that, whether its a young guy starting with a veteran backup or vice versa. Well see how it shakes out. Currently, Manuel and Jeff Tuel are the only quarterbacks on the roster.

2013

Throughout the entire draft season, it was quarterbacks Geno Smith, Ryan Nassib and Mike Glennon who received the majority of attention from the media. By late April, it was Manuel who got the last laugh as the only quarterback drafted in the first round. If Manuel holds on to job in Buffalo, he also has the best chance of any rookie to provide fantasy-relevant numbers due to his legs, but note that a knee procedure clouds his Week 1 status. Manuel, who rushed for 310 yards and four touchdowns in 2012 at Florida State, could easily eclipse those numbers in the NFL. New coach Doug Marrone also plans to install an up-tempo offense that could lead to more volume in the passing game.
