Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - The Buffalo Bills came to terms with their top draft choice Friday, as quarterback E.J. Manuel signed his rookie contract.
Per team policy, financial terms of the pact were not disclosed.
Manuel was selected 16th overall in April's draft and is expected to compete for the starting quarterback spot with Kevin Kolb, who signed a two-year, $13 million deal with the Bills in March.
"It's a great feeling and I'm excited to be truly part of the team now," Manuel told the Bills' official website. "I had no doubt at all. I knew I was going to be here and it was going to be done before training camp. I'm just glad it was done earlier instead of later."
Manuel, who went 25-6 as a starter at Florida State, was the last of Buffalo's eight draft picks to ink his rookie deal.
