The Buffalo Bills have cut ties with a backup quarterback for the third time this week.
Undrafted out of Washington State, Tuel impressed the coaching staff with a fine performance in training camp and preseason action last summer. He was the Bills' backup plan to start the season opener last September if EJ Manuel's knee didn't cooperate.
Thrown into the fire in relief of Manuel a month later, an overmatched Tuel completed just 8 of 20 passes for 80 yards and a game-sealing pick six. It was evident in that performance that Tuel simply doesn't have the arm talent to hold down a backup job in the NFL.
