The Bills have been doing their research on the quarterbacks available in this year’s draft, which makes sense since they don’t have a quarterback signed beyond this season.
That could change if they reached agreement on a contract extension with Taylor, something both sides have said they are open to but there hasn’t been much momentum toward a deal at this point. There could be a third option to the extension and letting Taylor play out the season.
Benjamin Allbright of 1340 AM in Denver reported that the Broncos have inquired with the Bills about Taylor, something that the Bills website discussed on Thursday without confirming or denying any conversations have taken place. Taylor played for Broncos coach Gary Kubiak when Kubiak was the offensive coordinator on the Ravens, and Vic Lombardi of Altitude Sports Network said on PFT Live last season that the Broncos were interested in him as a free agent in 2015 before he signed with the Bills.
Taylor’s agent, Adisa Bakari, didn’t comment on the Broncos report on Sirius XM NFL Radio Thursday, but did suggest other teams would be interested in his services. He also told the Bills that defense and discipline were bigger factors in missing the playoffs than Taylor, who he called “exceptional,” and said he hopes that Buffalo realizes that 2015 was a “small sample” of what Taylor can do.
