Bills draft CB Ronald Darby with the No. 50 pick

The Buffalo Bills selected Florida State cornerback Ronald Darby with the No. 50 pick in the NFL draft on Friday.

Darby was also selected 2012 ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year and tied for the team lead with eight pass breakups that season...

Quarterback EJ Manuel still has plenty to prove with Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Two years after being the only quarterback selected in the first round of the NFL draft, EJ Manuel is aware how much he still has to prove to the Buffalo Bills. ''I don't want to say it's a make-it-or-break-it year, but I know it's definitely a very important spring right now,'' Manuel said following a voluntary veterans minicamp session this week. ''Obviously...

Buffalo Bills season will be defined by a mediocre-quarterback competition

There’s nothing more exciting in this world than a mediocre-quarterback competition! Well, maybe I can think of a few things, but seeing EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor duke it out for a chance to start Week 1 is pretty cool, too. And that process starts now, as the Bills, along with every other team sporting a new head coach, have been granted a three-day voluntary minicamp...

Sammy Watkins on EJ Manuel: 'I believe in him 100 percent'

The Buffalo Bills seem to be thriving under new head coach Rex Ryan. With fresh leadership in town, the team is pumped, and wide receiver Sammy Watkins appears to be especially supportive of third-year quarterback E.J. Manuel.  Though Watkins is on the mend following offseason hip surgery, he’s backing Manuel wholeheartedly leading into the 2015 NFL season. Sammy on EJ, ...

Can EJ Manuel or Geno Smith be a reliable starter?

It was anticipated the 2013 NFL draft would be a black hole of suck at the quarterback position. Mock drafters and analysts routinely elevate average quarterback prospects each spring, often rightfully assuming the desperate search to find even competence leads to reaching. And it did two years ago, but the object of desire was a surprise. The Buffalo Bills lunged at EJ Manuel...

Rex Ryan Gives Cover For Manuel Restoration

I love Rex Ryan’s approach to coaching.  He's not like everybody else...and that's just fine.   His demeanor creates a loose and free atmosphere, and his players aren’t mentally bogged down with fear tactics and empty threats that some coaches use as motivation. Along with creating a player-friendly environment, we all know how much Rex loves interacting with the media. He...

Buffalo Bills: EJ Manuel’s second chance

Injury-prone.  A project.  A bust. It seems any time EJ Manuel’s name is brought up, these are the labels that have come to categorize him.  Manuel, taken in the first round by the Buffalo Bills in 2013, hasn’t had the best start to his NFL career.  His rookie season was cut short by injury, forcing him to miss six games.  His second season was essentially a wash, as he...

How Good Can Bills Quarterback EJ Manuel Be?

Quarterback is the most important position in professional sports. The fact that the Buffalo Bills do not know who will be their starting quarterback in week one next season is rather unnerving for Bills fans. The team can go the way of the mediocre veteran in quarterback Matt Cassel, the unproven young quarterback in EJ Manuel, or the team can enter the unknown by starting Tyrod...

Spiller: EJ Manuel learned not to be 'buddy buddy' with everyone

C.J. Spiller believes that one of EJ Manuel’s problems thus far in the NFL has been that he is too nice of a guy. Spiller, who is set to become a free agent and may not return to the Buffalo Bills, said during an interview with NFL Network’s NFL AM on Tuesday that Manuel had...Read More

Bills: Drafting EJ Manuel was not a 'failure'

The Buffalo Bills lost their starting quarterback Kyle Orton, who abruptly announced his retirement on Monday. Orton’s departure leaves the Bills short-handed with quarterbacks E.J. Manuel and Jeff Tuel on the roster. When asked about second-year quarterback E.J. Manuel, general manager Doug Whaley called the selection of Manuel “a Buffalo Bills pick” (via I wouldn’t...
