Tyrod Taylor signs long term deal with the Buffalo Bills

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

After playing five years in the NFL, Tyrod Taylor finally became an NFL starting QB. One year later the man receives a long-term extension.

Quite shocking to see as the former Ravens backup wasn’t particularly effective for Baltimore. Nonetheless I couldn’t be more proud of the former Raven.

I have preached it many times, but I whole-heartedly believe him being a part of the Ravens team back in 2012 couldn’t be more helpful. The Ravens were facing an upstart offense in the Super Bowl with a prime Colin Kaepernick. Tyrod in practice was capable of mimicking their offense, which helped to shut down the team in the Super Bowl rather than Kaepernick running wild as he did against the Green Bay Packers.

In the end, it’s only a bummer that Baltimore couldn’t receive any sort of compensation for a now starting caliber quarterback, but we’ll see if the money was worth it week one, when the Buffalo Bills come to M&T Bank Stadium to play the Baltimore Ravens
