Baltimore Ravens former backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor and the Buffalo Bills are currently working on a deal that could be up to six years.
I'm hearing upcoming Tyrod Taylor deal is not a bridge contract. Bills are all-in, maybe as long as six years (unsure on options).— Tim Graham (@ByTimGraham) August 12, 2016
Source tells me that #Bills and QB Tyrod Taylor are very close to announcing contract extension. Announcement could come as soon as today— Josh Reed (@4JoshReed) August 12, 2016
No doubt this would be astonishing, Taylor has only played one season as the starting quarterback. Then again we watched as Brock Osweiler hauled in a mega-deal from the Houston Texans after his play with the Denver Broncos.
In 14 games Tyrod posted a 7-6 W/L record. He Threw for 3,035 yards, 20 TD’s and only 6 interceptions. Nothing extravegant, but clearly something the Bills so desperately needed, a consistent playmaker under center.
Do keep in mind that during the 10 games where Taylor, Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy were all on the field the Bills became the fourth highest scoring offense in the league. They averaged 26.5 points per game last season.
The Bills defense regressed hard last year, but if the Ryan brothers can get back on track defensively, while the offense puts up adequate points, the Buffalo Bills could come charging for a top spot in the AFC.
