Buffalo Bills Circling The Wagons: EJ Manuel, Charles Clay


We are still looking at this quarterback situation and will be through training camp.  Charles Clay is set and ready to go, and the Buffalo Bills have a TE corps that could be one of the best in the league this year.

Here are your daily links for the Buffalo Bills from around the web.

Why we expect more of EJ Manuel in 2015.

"EJ Manuel, has had more downs than ups since coming out of Florida State and being drafted 16th overall by the Buffalo Bills in 2013. So much so, that he ended up losing the starting job to QB Kyle Orton, in 2014, after starting 10 games his rookie year; he only played in five games in 2014. Although Manuel has shown some flashes of greatness, specifically his 24-23 win over the Panthers when he had a career-high 296 yards along with a touchdown and a personal best 69.3 percent completion rate, he has struggled to find consistency in the Buffalo offense. And with the NFL becoming more of a passing league, it puts more pressure on Manuel to step up in order for the Bills to have any chance of success. So is Manuel another first round bust? Or is he a future NFL-caliber QB with more to show?"

Bills‘ prospect Gaines is running down a dream

"Head upstairs at the Northtown Center in Amherst, toward the back, veer left and inside this dim gym is where you’ll find Jimmy Gaines all month. He’s at the squat rack this day, ripping through a lower-body workout. His light blue Buffalo Bills T-shirt is now drenched to a dark navy.Once it’s all over, Gaines wipes his brow and takes a seat on the red bench overlooking a hockey rink below.He cannot stop smiling. One reason? He already has an edge on other linebackers in Buffalo.You see, last off-season Doug Marrone’s coaching staff let players take home their iPad playbooks during this five-week lull between minicamp and training camp. New head coach Rex Ryan, not so much. His staff asked for all the iPads back."

With Charles Clay, can Buffalo Bills become ‘tight end heaven?’

"One player thinks so. MarQueis Gray, who was lining up as the No. 2 tight end through OTA’s and minicamp, gushed over Greg Roman’s offense in our feature that ran on Monday, calling it “Tight End Heaven.” Of course, Gray played with Roman his first year in the NFL and knows the offensive coordinator features the tight end.That’d be quite a change from what Western New Yorkers are used to seeing."

What makes the Buffalo Bills‘ D-line so dominant?

"Every elite unit in the NFL must of course feature a certain level of talent and skill. That however, is only one piece of the puzzle.There must be something that keeps the players team-oriented. They must be in joint pursuit of a common goal, or else the entire operation will fall flat.The Buffalo Bills probably own the best defensive line in the league. They have star pass-rushers Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes on the edge with Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams on the interior. Together they have earned 10 Pro Bowl nods — Hughes is the only one looking for his first invite, and it should come soon.Mario Williams believes the team-first mentality, despite all the individual accolades, is what separates Buffalo’s D-line."

Buffalo Bills founder’s military medals displayed in Buffalo
