EJ Manuel likes what he's seen of the Buffalo Bills' offense so far -- he's actually finding the adjustment to the Bills' system easy compared to what he had to learn at Florida State. That could help him earn the starting nod sooner rather than later.
"The funny thing is it's easier to learn than the offense I had at Florida State," he told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "It's a true West Coast-type progression offense. That's really what I wanted when I was coming through the pre-draft process. I wanted something that I could just go in and say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, check it down and run it. That's it, it's that simple. I love it."
Additionally, Manuel says that the option will not be a part of the Bills' offense. He showed good speed at the NFL Combine, running a 4.65 40-yard dash, but he also lacks familiarity with that style of play, which may be a factor in the team's decision to keep those wrinkles out of the playbook. He did run for more than 300 yards during his senior season, but he averaged only about seven rushing attempts per game. The Seminoles didn't ask him to take on a dual-threat role, and the Bills won't either.
