NFLN survey/franchise player: Bills

By Mike Rodak

The Buffalo Bills are hoping that EJ Manuel is their franchise quarterback.

But in a recent survey of 320 NFL players, none said that they would choose Manuel if they had to start a franchise with just one player. Instead, 62 players chose Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning while his successor with the Indianapolis Colts, Andrew Luck, drew the second-most votes.

Only one Bills player appeared on the survey results: defensive tackle Kyle Williams drew one vote.

Obviously, the Bills would love to have Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, or some of the other players receiving the most votes in this survey.

But like most teams, they'll have to keep looking.
