Training camps are opening around the NFL, including in Buffalo where Jeff Tuel will attempt to stick as the No. 3 quarterback.
Tuel went undrafted before signing with the Bills. When he first signed, it appeared he had an uphill battle to make the team. Buffalo drafted EJ Manuel in the first round and had Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson on the roster. The Bills have since released Jackson, giving Tuel a very good opportunity to make the 53-man roster if Buffalo keeps three quarterbacks.
WGR 550 caught up with Tuel in advance of the start of training camp. He said he's "coming in to compete and leave it in the coaches hands."
As far as Mike Leach's impact on Tuel's NFL readiness? The former Cougar quarterback said the offense in Buffalo is not very similar to the Air Raid he ran last season at WSU, but the idea to get the ball out quick is something that will carry over.
Good luck to Tuel and the other WSU players attempting to make NFL rosters over the next month.
