- According to La Canfora, the Bills actually made the decision to move on from Taylor weeks ago.
This implies that the Bills will not pick up his option after this season and instead allow him to test the open market next March.
Taylor is scheduled to meet with a doctor in Philadelphia to determine if he needs hernia surgery.
Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Taylor will likely miss six weeks or so if he ends up needing surgery for a core muscle issue.
Taylor told Vic Carucci yesterday that he doesn’t want to move on from the Bills, even though he was benched for their season finale.
Taylor, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2011. After four years in Baltimore, the Bills signed him to a three-year, $3.35 million contract that included just $1.2 million guaranteed last year.
However, the third year of his contract actually voided after he surpassed the snap limit last year. The Bills later signed him to six-year, $92 million contract but the deal is really a one-year, $9.5 million agreement with a $15.5 million option on 2017 to go along with a $12 million base salary
In 2016, Taylor has thrown for 3,023 yards while completing 61.7 percent of his passes to go along with 16 touchdowns and six interceptions. Taylor has added 469 yards rushing and six touchdowns on the ground. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 11 quarterback out of 36 qualifying players.
