Bills and QB Tyrod Taylor Agree to Long-Term Deal

August 12th, 2016

The Buffalo Bills have found their quarterback. Well, technically they found him last year with Tyrod Taylor, but they have now all but made it official after the two sides agreed to a long-term contract extension. The deal was first reported by Buffalo News' Tim Graham.

Taylor joined the Bills last season as a free agent and earned the starting job after being a backup for several years in Baltimore. In 14 starts, Taylor completed nearly 64 percent of his passes, threw for over 3,000 yards, rushed for over 500 and contributed 24 total touchdowns (four rushing) with just six interceptions. The 27-year-old's performance didn't initially earn him a contract extension, but now the sides have agreed to terms on a long-term deal.

While initial reports say it could reach as much as six years and $90 million, Graham's report indicates there are options in the deal, so we'll wait for more confirmed news and update it when the information becomes available.
