Watch: EJ Manuel ready for training camp
According to Steve Calhoun’s Instagram account, EJ Manuel has had his last offseason training session with him before players report to St. John Fisher College in 10 days.
Watch a clip below of EJ during a footwork drill with Coach Calhoun that he posted to his Instagram account.
Manuel looks like he is physically ready for the start of the 2014 NFL season but the real question is if he will be ready mentally. He definitely looked like a rookie last year but anyone who watched him closely saw the glimpses of what could be. EJ Manuel did suffer three separate knee injuries during his rookie season that restrained him to only compete in 10 games last year. That inexperience may hurt him in his progression this season, but he is making sure that is not because of lack of effort.
The Buffalo Bills hopes of making the playoffs for the first time in over 14 years rest solely on EJ’s shoulders. Last year the Bills offense was stagnant at times because of the carousel at the quarterback position. Now with a revived wide receiver corps and bolstered offensive line, EJ Manuel will look to build off of his 2013 season stats, 1,972 passing yards, 11 TD and 9 INTs.
