With his new contract in hand, Bills rookie quarterback EJ Manuel is ready to show the team made a wise move by taking him in the first round of the NFL draft. That’s something Manuel thinks he’s been steadily showing with each passing day of Organized Team Activities.
Manuel said at the end of the Bills’ offseason work that he believes he has improved consistently throughout the offseason.
“I thought I got better every day. That’s the biggest thing for me just continue to develop and get better each day and continue to work hard,” Manuel told the team’s website. “I feel very comfortable around the coaches, my teammates and the guys on offense as well as defense. I love the competitive nature about the team. It’s a great blueprint that I’m happy to be a part of.”
The Bills’ decision to release quarterback Tarvaris Jackson suggests that they feel good about going into training camp with a two-man battle between Manuel and Kevin Kolb for the starting job. And if Manuel keeps getting better every day, he’ll likely be better than Kolb by the first day of the season.
