The Oakland Raiders will have a quarterback that was drafted in the first round on their roster next season, but it will not be Derek Carr. The Raiders are set to sign former first-round quarterback E.J. Manuel according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. The Buffalo Bills drafted Manuel with the 16th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. He started 10 games as a rookie, going 4-6 as a starter with 11 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. Then-Bills coach Doug Marrone went with veteran signal caller Kyle Orton as his starter the following season. The Bills went 9-7 that season, including 2-2 with Manuel starting. Marrone left at the end of the year. Despite Orton also leaving via retirement, Manuel was never viewed as the future at quarterback again for the Bills. New head coach Rex Ryan signed former Ravens backup Tyrod Taylor to be the Bills’ new starter in 2015. Manuel started two games that season and one this past fall, but went 0-3.
