Report: Bills are expected to release QB Matt Cassel

Matt Cassel is expected to start in the first preseason game for Buffalo
Matt Cassel is expected to be released on Saturday

The Buffalo Bills will start the season with Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel as their 1 and 2 quarterbacks. Both are from Virginia, and both are running quarterbacks.  The team is expected to release veteran quarterback Matt Cassel and use his 4,750,000 million dollar cap savings towards Marcell Dareus contract.

Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News spoke to multiple NFL personnel executives who expect the Bills to release veteran QB Matt Cassel and retain former first-round pick EJ Manuel as their backup.

According to Carucci, Manuel has “strong support” from Bills GM Doug Whaley, which makes sense given that Whaley was one of the people who signed off on taking in round one a few years ago.

The Buffalo Bills are making the right decision by keeping EJ Manuel, because the kid showed something in the game against the top rated Carolina Panthers defense when he led the team to a fourth quarter victory.
