Bills QB E.J. Manuel to get a 'fresh start' with new coaching staff

WGR 550 - [Full Article]

E.J. Manuel and Jeff Tuel are the lone holdovers from the previous coaching staff, but that doesn't necessarily mean that their immediate futures with the team are predetermined. New OC Greg Roman said Manuel, the team's first-round pick in 2013, will get his chance to start fresh with the new coaching staff.

"I'm not going to get into specifics. but I definitely think he's done some very good things and displayed some good traits. 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."

Fantasy Impact: 

Manuel was the #19 fantasy quarterback when he was benched after Week 4. To that point, he had averaged 6.40 YPA and had thrown five touchdowns versus three interceptions. The team elected to move on to Kyle Orton.
