EJ Manuel and Marques Goodwin are just two of the rookies that are spending as much of their free time as possible reviewing their playbooks on their I-pads. Most of the time through the spring practices, the two Bills draft choices have spent that playbook time away from the team facility together and having a study partner helps.
Manuel and Goodwin decided to room together in a local apartment complex, and take the time to work the playbook together.
“When I’m not here, Marquise and I are usually at home trying to go over everything and just reviewing what we over in our notes and things like that,” said Manuel.
“We’ve got a great relationship. We room together down the road,” said Goodwin. “We just try to build on that, talk to each other every day and studying together. We just do about everything together.”
For Goodwin the time spent around Manuel off the field should benefit him on the field knowing the quarterback is the one that pulls the trigger. But Goodwin in a new city without anyone he knows is also looking to form friendships with teammates, Manuel among them.
“I feel like it’s very important to build some camaraderie with him more so off the field really,” said Goodwin. “It’s important in life to build a good relationship with him and have another friend, somebody I can lean on, somebody I can trust, somebody I can talk to. And on the field too. He’s the quarterback. He knows every position on the field as far as the offense goes so he can tell me everything I need to know if I have any questions and with him being my roommate he’s right there.”
