Tyrod Taylor not thinking about his future

Will he or won’t he? Even Tyrod Taylor doesn’t know what the Bills will do with him after this season, and the quarterback insists his future isn’t a concern.

“I don’t focus on things that I can’t control, and I’m going to continue to be that way,” Taylor said, via quotes distributed by the team. “All I can control right now is my preparation, my focus, my work ethic to putting it all in for this week. It’s a one-game season right now, and that’s for everyone. I can’t allow distractions or thinking too far ahead.”

The Bills restructured Taylor’s contract before this season, and he took a significant pay cut to stay. He now has only $1 million guaranteed for next year with another $6 million due on the third day of the 2018 league year. His salary cap number for 2018 is $18.08 million.

Taylor, who was benched for Nathan Peterman for one game and missed another with an injury, went 8-6 and will start a playoff game. While he didn’t throw for 300 yards in any of his 14 starts, he also threw only four interceptions and lost only two fumbles.

His play leaves the Bills with a big offseason decision on his future.

  1. If they beat Jax, Taylor won’t have to worry about much. Either he stays in Buffalo, or he’ll start for some other team next year. A third of the league is looking for a starting QB, so he’ll be fine either way. He’s not the most accurate QB, but is a dynamic athlete who can start on any number of teams.

  2. When are these prospects going to learn? Being thrown to the wolves year one seldom works out!

    This guy should have sat behind a seasoned QB for a couple of years to learn the ropes. Look at Garrapolo!

  3. What a joke. They effectively took 2 games from him by benching him for one, making his next start almost impossible to win. The Bills basically already told him, we don’t care what you do, we just don’t want you. So, they had a chance to be 10-6 ot better.

    Never before has a QB starter in contention for a playoff spot, been replaced by a rookie, who has never played a snap. McDermott made a serious mistake and I can’t figure where the decision came from. After the mismanagement, it’s probably best that Taylor leaves. The skill positions on offense are terrible and they will regret the handling of their QB situation.

    Regardless of whether they win another game or not. They messed up and it’s irreparable. That mistake will follow McDermott in his career.

    Taylor sat behind Flacco in Baltimore for 4 years. SMH

  6. Has anyone watched Taylor play? I mean the dude has serious limitations and has been downright awful against many decent defenses. His OC doesn’t help him by calling a game plan not at all suited to his skills. He’s mediocre…but we have to roll with him…. As far as the Peterman debacle, I don’t think that defines McDermott at all, nor follow him his career. Did anyone watch the SD game? Peterman got slaughtered behind a swiss cheese offensive line. The defense got run all over and we otherwise played terrible. Did we lose because of Peterman, absolutely not.

  8. Tyrod might be the most mistreated Quarterback in the NFL. Take away all his receivers and expect him to do great things? Makes no sense to me. At least they added Benjamin at some point of the season and have made strides to get Tyrod some help. He has his limitations don’t get me wrong, but their far less than what people think.

    I see a lot of sacks in his near future

    I see a lot of 6 picks and INT’s in the near future of Bust Bortles.

  10. Tyrod Taylor has never risen to even being an average QB – he will always be a fake QB who is a running back who thinks he can throw. I loathed him in Virginia Tech and I loathe him even more now.
