With Tyrod Taylor in complete control of the Bills quarterbacking duties, there was absolutely zero need to pick up Manuel's option for 2017. He didn't play well when he was the starter during his first couple of seasons with the team and won't get the chance with the aforementioned Taylor controlling the sleigh. Manuel is headed for a career of holding clipboards and the occasion start when an injury in front of him occurs.
After just one season with the team, they've elected to go in separate directions as Ifedi has been waived. He was drafted by the Bucs just last season but didn't get off of the practice squad.
