Bills' Roman: EJ Manuel getting clean slate with new coaching staff
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Tuesday during his introductory press conference quarterback EJ Manuel will get a fresh start with the new coaching staff, per WGR 550. Manuel was benched in favor of veteran Kyle Orton in 2014. Orton has since retired.

"I'm not going to get into specifics. but I definitely think he's done some very good things and displayed some good traits," Roman said. "We just have to get his level of consistency a little bit greater. Really, he and everybody else, once we get thru this evaluation process, we're going to have a very clean slate, once we get going because what they might have been asked to do or done in the past is really not relevant to what we may or may not ask them to do. So to sit here and pontificate about this that and the other, is a little premature."

Manuel is 6-8 as a starter over two NFL seasons. The 2013 first-round pick has a career 58.6 completion rate. He has passed for 2,810 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 15 games (14 starts).

Bills to explore all options for starting quarterback
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

New Bills coach Rex Ryan said Sunday the team will look at all possible options during the offseason to determine who will be the starting quarterback for the team.

Ryan has said he is excited to work with current quarterback EJ Manuel, but he will not just hand the position to the second-year player out of Florida State.

"Will we explore possible veteran free agents or draft picks out there? Absolutely," Ryan said. "We're going to explore everything to add competition because that makes your whole team better."

Manuel was benched after four starts in 2014 in favor of now retired Kyle Orton. He threw for 838 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions.

New Bills coach Rex Ryan guarantees playoff berth
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Introduced as Bills head coach Wednesday, Rex Ryan was his usual blustery self.

“I know it’s been 15 years since the Bills have been to the playoffs,” he said. “Get ready. We’re going. We are going.”

Ryan stopped short of guaranteeing a Super Bowl, saying, “I’ll guarantee the pursuit of it.”

He said his message to the team was simple: “We’re going to be playing games in January and so forth – start preparing that way.”

Ryan professed to be “not concerned at all” about his quarterback situation. Though he did not commit to EJ Manuel as the starter, Ryan said the second-year pro “has a lot of traits you look for in a quarterback.”

Kyle Orton announced his retirement following the season. Asked about a possible reunion with Mark Sanchez, Ryan said the team will explore all options.

The Bills went 9-7 this season, then coach Doug Marrone opted out of his contract.

Report: Bills GM speaking highly of Manuel to coaching candidates
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bills general manager Doug Whaley apparently is not giving up on quarterback EJ Manuel, who was benched in favor of veteran Kyle Orton after four games in 2014.

Whaley is telling potential coaching candidates he believes Manuel's struggles have had more to do with coaching than the player, an NFL source told The Buffalo News. The source added that Whaley is not only speaking in glowing terms about Manuel, but he has made it clear he wants to the new coach to make progress in developing Manuel.

Manuel, who was the 16th overall pick in 2013, is 6-8 as a starter in his first two seasons in the NFL. He has a 58.6 percent completion rate and 78.5 quarterback rating. He also has 16 passing touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 15 career games.

Bills will wait and see how they proceed with EJ Manuel
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With quarterback Kyle Orton announcing his retirement on Monday, attention shifted to what the Bills will do at quarterback for the 2015 season.

Orton replaced a struggling EJ Manuel in Week 5 and Bills general manager Doug Whaley told reporters the team will add one or two quarterbacks in the offseason, but he did not endorse Manuel as the 2015 starter, reports The Buffalo News.

"He did take a little of a regression back, but we've also seen some progression in what he’s been doing at practice," Whaley said. "So it’s to be determined. And again, we're going to do our due diligence and leave every option open at that position."

When asked if he’ll play for the Bills in 2015, Manuel said he expects to be a major contributor.

"I think I'm still a major factor on this team as far as the offense, as far as leadership, so we'll see," Manuel said.
