Poll: With EJ Manuel out, which QB should Bills acquire?

By Tim Graham

With pedigreed rookie quarterback EJ Manuel out of commission for "a few weeks" and undrafted rookie quarterback Jeff Tuel looking unprepared to play regular-season NFL games yet, the Buffalo Bills are in the market for some outside help.

Doug Marrone today announced the Bills are on the lookout and whomever gets added to the roster could start Oct. 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

As the list below illustrates, options are far from rousing.

The free-agent market includes several quarterbacks the Bills have employed in the past or granted tryouts. Maybe there are a couple trade possibilities, too.

Tell us who you would go after if you had your druthers.


EJ Manuel | Jeff Tuel | Trent Edwards | Tyler Thigpen | Vince Young
