  Jaguars | Jeff Tuel claimed    Mon Jun 1, 04:56 PM

Free-agent QB Jeff Tuel (Bills) was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday, June 1.

Footballguys view: Tuel is likely just a camp arm, but he does have connections to the coaching staff in Jacksonville. Doug Marrone (assistant head coach) and Nathaniel Hackett (quarterback coach) were the Bills' head coach and offensive coordinator, respectively, the past two seasons.

  Bills | Matt Simms claimed    Fri May 29, 05:34 PM

New York Jets QB Matt Simms was claimed off waivers by the Buffalo Bills Friday, May 29. The Bills also waived QB Jeff Tuel.

Footballguys view: We don't see Simms as anything more than a camp arm for the Bills. As a former Jets player, Simms has ties to Rex Ryan and he knows what the coach wants from a quarterback.

  Bills | Buffalo QBs receiving equal reps at OTAs    Wed May 27, 02:37 PM

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel were given equal repetitions during organized team activities Tuesday, May 26. Manuel and Cassel worked with the starters while Taylor and Tuel worked with the backups. Head coach Rex Ryan said he wants to give everyone a fair chance.

Footballguys view: Cassel has the most experience, but he's not an exciting option as a starter. Manuel is big, somewhat athletic and has a strong arm but his decision making needs a lot of work. Taylor could be a sleeper here. He's ultra athletic and has a rocket arm. He needs to show better accuracy as a passer if he wants to win the starting job in Buffalo.

  Bills | EJ Manuel part of open competition     Sat May 23, 11:44 PM

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel will all have a chance to win the starting job, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Footballguys view: Let's go ahead and leave Tuel out of this conversation. Manuel is big, athletic and has a strong arm but he failed to make quick decisions as a passer. Cassel has the most experience, but he's not an exciting option as a starter--even for a team that is going to be run-heavy on offense. Taylor is supremely gifted athletically and he has a rocket arm, but he's unproven and needs to be more accurate as a passer. The Bills are going to run the ball as much as possible, and any starting quarterback for them isn't going to be much of a fantasy factor.

  Bills | All four Buffalo QBs to get first-team reps    Mon Apr 13, 04:06 PM

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Jeff Tuel and Tyrod Taylor will all receive first-team repetitions in workouts, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Footballguys view: The Bills are going to have an open competition at quarterback. At the end of the day, we think Matt Cassel ends up with the starting job. Tyrod Taylor might be better competition for the starting job over E.J. Manuel.

  Bills | Jeff Tuel being cut    Sat Aug 30, 03:45 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel will be released Saturday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: With Kyle Orton signed, the writing was on the wall for Tuel. We're not shocked here. Tuel's pop-gun arm and moxie weren't enough to make a quality backup.

  Bills | Coach not happy with backup QB play    Sun Aug 17, 08:27 PM

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said he was not happy with the play of QBs Thaddeus Lewis and Jeff Tuel during the second preseason game. Lewis went 1-for-6 for 18 yards and an interception, while Tuel went 5-for-9 for 48 yards and a fumble. The competition for the No. 2 quarterback job is still considered open.

Footballguys view: EJ Manuel has been a middling to poor option for the Bills, but neither of the backups are inspiring confidence after Lewis was actually quite functional in the Marrone/Hackett offense last year. Manuel also missed multiple games with injuries last year, so this is shaping up for a potentially disastrous season at QB for Buffalo with Cleveland holding their first-round pick next year.

  Bills | Thaddeus Lewis, Jeff Tuel battling    Sat Aug 2, 01:18 AM

Buffalo Bills QBs Thaddeus Lewis and Jeff Tuel are battling for the primary back job to QB EJ Manuel. Lewis continued to struggled Friday, Aug. 1, and Tuel had one of his best days of training camp, creating some space in the battle to be backup.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine Tuel winning the primary backup job. Lewis is more athletic and has a stronger arm. We'll see this battle play out through training camp.

  Bills | Thaddeus Lewis not on same page with Tori Gurley    Tue Jul 22, 10:52 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis and WR Tori Gurley had miscommunications on three occasions Tuesday, July 22, resulting in two incomplete passes and an interception. Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 Sports Radio believes that if Lewis doesn't show better command of the offense that QB Jeff Tuel will land the backup QB job.

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis and QB Jeff Tuel are in an open competition for the backup quarterback job, head coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Lewis might be the player to watch here. He's a better athlete than Tuel, and Lewis has a stronger arm.

  Bills | Backup QBs alternating    Tue Jul 22, 10:32 AM

Buffalo Bills QBs Jeff Tuel and Thaddeus Lewis are alternating series with the second unit in team drills Tuesday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Tuel has a weak arm, but he's accurate on shorter routes. Lewis is the player to watch here. He is athletic, can zip the ball downfield and looked good in limited playing time last year. Starting QB E.J. Manuel needs to avoid the injuries that plagued him last year. If Manuel is hurt, Lewis could take over and have some nice weapons around him to throw to.

  Bills | Jeff Tuel may challenge for No. 2 slot    Mon Jun 23, 02:18 AM

Updating a previous item, Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel has made significant progress in the offseason and may challenge QB Thaddeus Lewis for the backup spot.

Footballguys view: We think Lewis is the man for the job here. Yes, Tuel will "challenge" him but in the end it's like Lewis who is going to win the QB2 spot in Buffalo. Lewis has a skill set that more closely resembles that of starter E.J. Manuel. The Bills franchise quarterback struggled to stay healthy as a rookie, and if those injury woes continue then the team will need a player like Lewis to come in and play well.
