Report: Bills and Tyrod Taylor have “hammered out” a deal

AP

The Bills have apparently decided that one year of Tyrod Taylor was enough to make him their quarterback of the future.

According to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, the Bills negotiations with Taylor “have been hammered out,” which ostensibly means a deal is near.

While there are no details, he does mention that it isn’t a “bridge contract,” and that the Bills are “all-in” on a deal which could be up to six years.

After Kirk Cousins and Brock Osweiler, giving big contracts to guys who have performed for fewer than 16 games isn’t necessarily novel.

Taylor flourished in his first opportunity as a starter, and the Bills have made it clear they were willing to do a deal for him. We’ll see when the details emerge how much of a commitment they’ve made.

  1. this is great La Canfora will tell you 3 years and the HACK will tell you 6 years. Best part is both of these guys have a terrible source who has burned them multiple times with Bills info.

  2. As long as it’s sensible and doesn’t leave the Bills holding the bag for years to come I’m fine with it. The guy played well last year. My only reservations are his size and the fact that he didn’t really come back and win games when given the opportunity last season( the Philly game sticks out).

  3. sad that this selfish, me-first glory boy who gets by on raw athletcism can get a contract extension but most of the gritty, hard working employees in buffalo who bring there lunch pale to work every day cant get jobs. shame on the bills.

  4. Remember when the Bills gave Ryan Fitzpatrick a huge contract before he stunk up the place?

    It’s a good thing Buffalo isn’t giving another unheralded backup QB millions based on one season.

  5. Well, we all know he is better than any NFL team Toronto has………wait. They don’t have a team. But we do know he is better than Bust Eyeliner Carr from the Raiders.

  6. Why would you give a journeyman QB a long term deal after just one year of play?

    Make him do it again. If he excels and the price goes up, so be it.

    It’s better than being tied to a guy that could regress this season and hamstring the franchise.

    If they bring their lunch “pales” to work every day doesn’t that mean they have a jobs?

    Sorry troll.. He’s actually the first guy in and the last guy to leave. According to teammates he is a great leader not only with his play but by providing an example of how to work hard and prepare.

    And as for Buffalo workers you may want to check the stats the city has had great job growth recently and a booming housing market.

    realtruthteller you may want to look into some real English. The hard working employees in buffalo bring their (THEIR) lunch pales to work everyday. Isn’t there some Patriots deflategate article you should be cutting and pasting responses on?

  10. Kgun – you missed one… That would be ‘pails’ not ‘pales’. Although most people in western NY are pretty fair skinned due to the complete lack of sun. Or warmth.
