ORCHARD PARK, N. Tony Gonzalez Jersey .Y. - Acquiring a quarterback and maybe two tops the Buffalo Bills off-season to-do list after the team was stunned by quarterback Kyle Orton announcing his intention to retire Monday.Right now, its still trying to process it, general manager Doug Whaley said. We had no inclination that he was thinking to make that decision at this time or down the road. So it was surprising.The 32-year-old caught the team off guard when he informed coach Doug Marrone of his plans shortly before the Bills held their end-of-season meetings.The revelation came a day after the 10-year journeyman led Buffalo (9-7) to a season-ending 17-9 win at New England.Despite enjoying its first winning season since a 9-7 finish in 2004, Buffalo missed the playoffs to extend the NFLs longest active post-season drought to 15 years.Its just a family decision, Orton said, in a statement released by the team. Ive decided to get home and be a dad and call it a day.Orton declined to speak to reporters while making a brief appearance at his locker, where he picked up a few of his belongings, including a money clip.By electing to retire, Orton passes up a chance to make a $5.4 million base salary he was due next year after making $2.5 million this season.I cant be disappointed with a guy that says his hearts not in it, Whaley said. I respect his decision. I respect what he brought to our team this year. And we wish him nothing but the best.Orton was already contemplating retirement in mid-July when he was cut by the Dallas Cowboys after failing to attend the teams spring minicamps. The Bills signed him to a two-year contract with a little more than a week before the start of the season.Initially brought in to mentor EJ Manuel, Orton wound up replacing the second-year player after a 2-2 start.Orton provided an initial spark in going 3-1 in his first four starts before he and the offence sputtered down the stretch. He finished 7-5 with 3,018 yards passing with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.Minus Orton, the Bills are left with two quarterbacks, Manuel and Jeff Tuel, who spent the entire season on the practice squad.Manuel has two years left on his contract. The 2013 first-round picks future as the teams long-term starter, however, remains in question after he was benched.Without making any commitments, Whaley and Marrone said Manuel will be given an opportunity to reclaim the starting job next season.It wont happen without competition with Whaley saying he intends to add potentially two quarterbacks this off-season.Getting a quarterback through free agency or trade is a more likely option. The Bills dealt their first-round draft pick to Cleveland for the right to move up five spots and select receiver Sammy Watkins fourth overall.Ortons addition was a stop-gap measure. And yet the Bills were looking forward to seeing the benefit Orton would get by having an entire off-season to better learn the offensive system.Marrone was so surprised by Ortons decision that he initially asked the quarterback to reconsider.Had Marrone known about Ortons plans, the coach would have reconsidered his decision to start the veteran over Manuel in the finale with the Bills already eliminated from playoff contention.Receiver Robert Woods said Orton had hinted at the possibility of retiring in recent weeks.Hed talk about it here and there, just joking around, Its my last get-around, guys, Woods said. I gained a lot of knowledge from him. Im happy for him. Were thankful for him.With a 42-40 record as a starter, Orton was Chicagos fourth-round pick in 2005, and also played in Denver and Kansas City.Quarterback shuffles are nothing new in Buffalo.The Bills havent had a starter last beyond three years since Hall of Famer Jim Kelly retired following the 1996 season. Including Orton, the Bills have now had 11 quarterbacks start at least eight games over the past 18 seasons.NOTES: Tuel was one of 10 players the Bills signed to reserve/future contracts on Monday. Also signed were WRs Caleb Holley and Tobais Palmer, DLs Bryan Johnson and Jeremy Towns, OLs William Campbell and D.J. Morrell, linebacker Jimmy Gaines, cornerback Rod Sweeting and safety Deon Broomfield.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Ricky Ortiz Jersey . He learned about pressure and expectations at the 2010 Games in his hometown of Vancouver. His next mission is to build on that experience at his next Olympic appearance in Sochi, where he plans to ride the momentum from the teams strong start to the season. Jack Crawford Jersey . The Canadian Luge Association officially named seven athletes to the 2014 Olympic team Tuesday. Edney, will lead teenagers John Fennell and Mitchel Malyk into their first Games in mens singles. Tristan Walker and Justin Snith will represent Canada in doubles, while Gough, will be joined by Kimberley McRae in womens singles. http://www.cheapfalconsjerseysonsale.com/?tag=matt-schaub-jersey-sale . Seager had another triple, a home run and a double in a rare feat not seen in more than 40 years, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2. "It was a weird play," Seager said of the triple in the fourth inning.Matthew Le Tissier believes Manchester City will deny rivals Manchester United a top-four finish this season. With Leicester and Tottenham looking to have the Premier League title between them and Arsenal their closest rivals, the final Champions League berth appears to be between the Manchester duo and fifth-placed West Ham.City, who followed up a 4-0 win at Bournemouth with a 2-2 draw against PSG on Wednesday, hold a slender one-point lead over United going into the final seven matches of the season, an advantage Sky Sports pundit Le Tissier is convinced they will maintain. Arsenal travel to West Ham for the lunchtime kick-off on Saturday while City host West Brom later in the day before United take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane at 4pm on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.Speaking to Sky Sports Now, Le Tissier said: I think given the way Spurs are playing this season, they go into the weekend as pretty hot favourites, although Manchester United can never be written off.If you are asking me who I think would win I would probably say Spurs and I think Man Utd will probably be just shy of overtaking Man City for fourth Place.City still have plenty in their locker and if they loook like they are getting threatened for fourth place theyll start pulling out some results as they did at Bournemouth last weekend. Richard Jarvis Jersey. Charlie Adam says United look to be losing their fear factor And fellow Sky Sports Now guest Charlie Adam backs Le Tissiers claims, insisting teams no longer fear facing United at home or away.I would say the fear factor has dipped in recent seasons, said the Stoke City midfielder. And I would say that Sir Alex Ferguson leaving was a major factor in that.He was a big presence at the club and also in English football. I think a lot of clubs going to Old Trafford now are confident that they can beat them. However, they are in the mix right now and will give it a right go.  Also See: Will Martial beat Rooney?
