Bills GM Doug Whaley said that they have reached out to QB Tyrod Taylor‘s agent regarding a contract extension.
“This is a week where we’ll delve more into it,” Whaley said, per Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News. “We’ll see where it goes.”
Taylor has said previously that he wants to be the “long-term guy” for the team.
“Of course I want to be the long-term guy,” Taylor said, via NFL.com. “I love playing for the organization, I love playing for the coaches, I love being around the guys. Like I said, I want to be the long-term guy for them. Ultimately that’s up to them. I know I’m under contract for another year, but right now I’m out here just taking it all in.”
Taylor, 26, three-year, $3.35 million contract that included just $1.2 million guaranteed with the Bills back in March. However, his three-year deal will actually void to a two-year deal now that he’s surpassed the snap limit. He’ll make a base salary of $1 million in 2016.
This season, Taylor threw for 3,035 yards passing while completing 63.7 percent of his passes to go along with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions. Taylor has also contributed 568 yards rushing and four rushing touchdowns over the course of 14 games.
