Former Bills' first-round pick E.J. Manuel likely is signing with the Oakland Raiders, per league sources.

Smart. He can be their backup for 10 years. Make a great living, live in nice weather. Maybe win a Super Bowl or 2.

Did Andre Holmes confirm this?

 

Seriously, I wish the kid all the best. Too bad it didn't work out like we all hoped.

All the best to the guy. Good person, just was a horrible 1st round pick and a listless QB

Best of luck to EJ. He was an upstanding individual in the face of constant scrutiny. He never pissed and moaned, but played out the hand he was dealt in Buffalo. He just isn't a starting caliber NFL QB. Vaya con dios.

awesome! I still think CFL might be a better route to being a starter. but this pays more money immediately. Thing is, he needs to put in the WORK.  the bloody foodwork. and staying cool in game. take some zen meditation classes over the off-season.

It will be interesting to see if he can be a competent backup with good coaching. Maybe he can be the next Todd Collins.

So he will take up residence in Las Vegas, right?

Isn't that where the Raiders are playing this year 🤔

I'm shocked that another team is willing to sign him.

Good luck EJ, stayed a true professional and never shot your mouth off here. We'll never know if a rubber mat and idiot coach didn't ruin your stay.
