The exact terms of the deal aren't clear, but it likely eliminates the Bills from targeting a QB early in the draft. It also takes another potential player off the free agent market.
The were reports that the Bills were planning on dumping Taylor this offseason. With the new deal, that won't happen. The new coaching staff reportedly wanted to keep Taylor.
Taylor completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 3,023 yards, 17 TDs and 6 INTs last year. He also had 580 rushing yards and six scores.Back to the Buffalo Bills Newsfeed
