Browns Haven’t Discussed Trading QB Tyrod Taylor


On Wednesday, Browns HC Hue Jackson reiterated that they haven’t discussed the idea of trading backup QB Tyrod Taylor before the upcoming deadline, per Nate Ulrich.

Taylor admitted being frustrated about his current situation, but said he isn’t one to complain about things.

It is frustrating, but it is a part of the game at the same time,” Taylor said. “Eight years in, you understand some things happen that you can’t control. Not wanting to complain, just have to continue to keep being myself day in and day out, continue to be a leader and like I said, help the team in any way. This is a different role, but I am here to offer as much knowledge, as well as just trying to share my view point of things, that can help the defense or offense.”

As for requesting a trade out of Cleveland, Taylor mentioned that it isn’t something he’s thought about.

“It really has not been a part of my mindset,” Taylor said. “Just more so have been focusing on getting better each and every day. Those things happen in the league. That really has not been a part of my mindset.

Taylor, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2011. After four years in Baltimore, Taylor signed on with the Bills for the 2015 season. Buffalo elected to trade Taylor to the Browns for a third-round pick this past March.

Taylor is entering the final year of a two-year, $30.5 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $10 million next season.

In 2018, Taylor has appeared in three games and thrown for 462 yards while completing 48.8 percent of his passes to go along with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He has also rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown.
