The latest injury to EJ Manuel has created some buzz around the Buffalo Bills' quarterback situation entering next season.

With 10 days left until the Bills' season finale, the offseason is right around the corner, so it's worth exploring the position a little deeper.

Here is a snapshot look at the Bills' quarterback position from a contract standpoint:

Player: EJ Manuel
Age: 23
Signed through: 2016
2014 base salary: $808,877

Player: Kevin Kolb
Age: 29
Signed through: 2014
2014 base salary: $2,000,000

Player: Thad Lewis
Age: 26
Signed through: 2014
2014 base salary: $645,000

Player: Jeff Tuel
Age: 22
Signed through: 2015
2014 base salary: $495,000

Base salaries are not guaranteed unless stipulated by the contract. In the Kolb's case, ProFootballTalk.com reported in April that he is also due a $1 million roster bonus on the third day of the 2014 league year, which begins in March.

The Bills also have 28-year old Dennis Dixon on their practice squad. He can sign a contract for the 2014 season as early as Dec. 30.
