ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Former Buffalo Bills quarterbacks Jim Kelly and Joe Ferguson like what they see from rookie EJ Manuel.

They were on hand Sunday for Buffalo's Wall of Fame weekend. Ferguson said before the Bills' game against the Carolina Panthers that ''this young quarterback has a good head on his shoulders and seems to me he has a natural talent to throw the football.''

He adds: ''I'm expecting a lot of good things from him.''

The team was honoring the 28 players whose names appear on the walls above the end zones at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Pro Football Hall of Famer Kelly says he hasn't been able to study Manuel closely ''but I liked what I saw.''

The Bills gave each member of the Wall of Fame a navy blue blazer to signify their accomplishments. Kelly was joined by fellow Hall of Famers Marv Levy, Joe DeLamielleure and Thurman Thomas.
