The Buffalo Bills are one of the few teams in the NFL without a franchise quarterback. Until they are able to find their next Jim Kelly, the team is using stop-gap signal callers for the time being.

They thought that they had a franchise QB when they drafted E.J. Manuel a few years ago in the first round. However, he hasn’t worked out like the team had hoped.

He fell out of favor with former head coach Doug Marrone, and lost his starting position to Kyle Orton. The once retired quarterback would lead the Bills to one of their best record in recent years.

The team is hoping to continue that success this season, and it doesn’t appear like Manuel would be the starter this season either. According to the Buffalo News, Matt Cassel – who was acquired in an off-season trade – is the front runner.

Their report even states that it is his job to lose. He’s the leader after the first two weeks of training camp.

Cassel is expected to start the team’s first preseason game this weekend. Tyrod Taylor is reportedly No. 2, while Manuel is a distant third and could even be released.
