EJ Manuel could be cut by the Buffalo Bills in shock move

It's been an exciting off-season for the Buffalo Bills so far, to say the very least.

Bills fans will be hopeful of making the playoffs after bringing in Rex Ryan as their new head coach, who should give a very big boost to their already impressive defense. On top of that, the Bills improved their offense a great deal by trading for LeSean McCoy and bringing in free agents Percy Harvin and Charles Clay.

But their offense could be set to go through even more of a transformation, with news of a possible release.

EJ Out?

According to a report from Joe Buscaglia of WKBW Buffalo, EJ Manuel might not even make it to his third year as an NFL quarterback with the Bills seriously considering cutting him once they get down to the 53-man roster.

"If former first-round pick and quarterback EJ Manuel doesn't show some serious progress this spring and summer at OTAs, minicamp and training camp, he very well may be enjoying his final few months in Buffalo as a member of the organization," Buscaglia wrote.

Cassel the Starter?

For the Bills to cut Manuel, they’d have to be sure that Manuel is not only worse than Matt Cassel, who they traded with the Minnesota Vikings for, but also that he isn't up to the standard of backups Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel.

And when considering that Manuel is still on his rookie deal, which is entirely guaranteed for the next year, the Bills would actually be paying Manuel to not even sit at the end of the bench holding a clipboard.  And that seems unlikely.

The 2013 Quarterback draft class will surely go down as one of the worst in history. None of the QB's selected are starters on their respective teams anymore, except Geno Smith, who may very well lose his job by the end of training camp.
