Palmer someone EJ has worked with before

Bills newest QB Jordan Palmer is someone that EJ Manuel not only knows, but has worked with before in the past. It has Manuel looking forward to spending more time with him as a teammate.

“Yes, I worked with JP,” said Manuel after Tuesday’s practice. “One year I was a counselor and he was, obviously, a counselor training some of the younger quarterbacks. That was probably the main time I’ve had an extensive period of time to workout with him and talk with him. I saw him in the offseason during the Super Bowl time up in New York and just catching up with him and seeing how things are going.”

Manuel is referring to former NFL QB Trent Dilfer’s ‘Elite 11’ camp where some of the top high school quarterback prospects perform. Palmer, who has been referred to as a coach on the field, is someone Manuel feels can only help him knowing this is going to be Palmer’s seventh NFL season.

“It’s going to be great,” Manuel said. “Even today after practice he brought up a couple drills that we could do. Some stuff that I’ve never done, some stuff that I’ve never seen before, but I thought it was pretty cool ways to throw the ball, while you’re still conditioning at the same time. I think the more experience he can bring to our room the better.”
