I think we can all say that Thursday night was a good night for EJ Manuel. He was drafted in the first round, despite most believing he wouldn’t, and he lands on a team where he has a legitimate chance to start.
But for a brief second, Manuel’s good night almost turned into a GREAT night.
Manuel joined the Dan Patrick Show on Friday and explained that when the Miami Dolphins were on the clock with the #3 pick, his greenroom phone rang. But unfortunately for Manuel, the caller wasn’t looking to talk to him.
E.J. Manuel said his green room hotline phone rang at pick 3. He got excited, then the voice asked if they could talk to Dion Jordan.

So for a brief second, EJ Manuel was pondering cashing out top 5 draft pick money. But I’m sure he’s just fine with that top 20 draft pick money he’s going to get.
