It’s reunion weekend for Florida State, and it’s being held at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
When the Bills and the Vikings kick off Friday, there will be 11 players who can are former Seminoles.
For the Bills: EJ Manuel, Dustin Hopkins, Shawn Powell, Nigel Bradham and Zebrie Sanders and for the Vikings: Christian Ponder, Everett Dawkins, Letroy Guion, Anthony McCloud, Xavier Rhodes and Rodney Smith.
Manuel said he spoke to Ponder a few months ago, casually. He was Ponder’s backup for a couple of seasons at FSU. He’s looking forward to reuniting with some former teammates again.
“It’ll be nice to go out there and play a couple of the guys who also went to Florida State,” Manuel said. “It’s quite a few guys.”
However, seeing old friends again isn’t distracting from Manuel’s and the team’s goal, he said.
“We still gonna go out there and win, that doesn’t have anything to do with it.”
