Tyrod Taylor Staying With Bills After Two Sides Agree To Deal


Scratch one veteran quarterback off the Browns' list of possibilities for 2017: Tyrod Taylor is staying with the Bills. He joined the Bills in 2015, taking over as the team's starting quarterback, with 29 starts in two seasons and 6,058 passing yards, 37 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions.

McDermott was hired in January to replace former coach Rex Ryan - a staunch supporter of Taylor.

With the Bills, Taylor flourished in the run game, totaling 1,148 yards and 10 touchdowns on 199 carries.

"We are excited about the opportunity to keep Tyrod with the Bills", said McDermott. "Doug (Whaley) and I are confident this was best move for the Bills at this time".


Additionally, the Bills released wide receiver/special teams ace Marcus Easley, who missed the 2016 season while rehabbing from a gruesome leg injury.

It looked like the Bills were going to let Taylor walk after he was benched for the season finale against the Miami Dolphins, but, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Bills new coaching staff always wanted to retain Taylor.

Taylor would have earned $27.5 million in 2017 had the Bills exercised his existing option.

Although terms of the contract restructure haven't been announced, it's safe to say that Taylor won't be getting anywhere the money he was supposed to get under his old deal. He leads National Football League quarterbacks in rushing yards (1,148) since 2015 but was sacked 78 times over that span, fifth-most in the NFL.
