On Monday head coach Jay Gruden declined to name Griffin the teams starter for the 2015 season after a season full of speculation that he wanted a different quarterback under center for the team.
“It’s all a part of the evaluation process,” Gruden said. “We’re going to take this thing very slow. … Until that position is earned, you have to have a competition.”
The decision on Griffin may not be Gruden’s to make. Reports have also circulated that Gruden could be headed out the door if the front office sticks with Griffin.
E.J. Manuel’s situation in Buffalo is similar.
Bills general manager Doug Whaley declined to endorse Manuel s the teams future even after Kyle Orton told the team he was retiring.
“That’s something we’ll have to look at, something we’ll have to go through with a fine-tooth comb,” Whaley said.
The Bills have a talented team across the roster but continue to suffer from poor quarterback play.
