Ryan: Want to work with EJ first

Posted by Chris Brown on January 20, 2015 – 9:20 am

Bills fans would like Buffalo’s quarterback situation finalized yesterday. But with a new coaching staff coming in there’s some ground work that needs to be laid. New head coach Rex Ryan said as much over the holiday weekend.

In an interview with FOX Sports, Ryan was asked if he believes EJ Manuel is a franchise quarterback. Though Ryan has coached against Manuel, he doesn’t really know him as a player. He believes he can make a more astute judgment after working with the young QB on a daily basis.

“I think it’s too early to tell right now. We’re still in the evaluating stages of looking at our quarterback situation. I thought of EJ a lot when he was coming out,” Ryan said. “We’ll see first-hand when we get a chance to coach him. I’m excited about him though, I’ll tell you that much. Will we explore possible veteran free agents or draft picks out there? Absolutely. We’re going to explore everything to add competition because that makes your whole team better.”
