EJ hoping to soak up QB knowledge from Big Ben

EJ Manuel spent part of his offseason working and training with San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick. He also spent time watching film of some other upper echelon quarterbacks in the league. Over these two days practicing with the Steelers Manuel is hoping some of Ben Roethlisberger’s way of doing things rubs off on him.

“For me personally, to see Big Ben in action and watch him and see how he prepares for every practice and how he goes in and out of each day is a huge opportunity for me,” said Manuel. “I’m just trying to take advantage of it.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Big Ben. Growing up in Virginia, it’s not too far from Pittsburgh and obviously early in his career he took those guys to a Super Bowl, so  to get an opportunity to come out and practice with him is awesome. I’m very excited about coming back out (Thursday) and having another good day.”

The second joint practice between the Bills and Steelers starts at 5:30 pm.
