Bills QB Tyrod Taylor told reporters on Thursday that he believes he can take his game to the next level in 2017.
“I definitely think I can take it to the next level it’s something that I’ve focused on throughout this offseason, which is to continue to keep digesting the offense and trying to be better at it each day,” Taylor said, via Pro Football Talk. “Like I said, this offense allows us to spread the ball around, allows me to get on the edge with the keepers, and matching up with the run game that we’re doing. I’m excited about the week that we’ve had thus far, just got to continue to keep building throughout OTA’s and minicamp moving into training camp.”
Taylor explained that he and OC Rick Dennison are working to tailor the offensive around what he was successful doing the past few years while including some aspects of the system they ran in Baltimore a few years ago.
“[W]hen me and Coach Dennison were together, my reps, as far as actually starting and playing in the NFL were very few, so he’s had time to watch me for two years and try to build something around that, as well as me adjusting to his system,” Taylor said. “Like I said, just the reps that I’m getting here [are] definitely key to my success and I’m taking each one very seriously, even the ones that I’m not on the field, just trying to better myself as a whole, as a player, and being a better teammate and leader and everything.”

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll explained earlier in the week during an appearance on 710 ESPN that will run the ball more in 2017.
“We definitely will,” Carroll said, via ESPN.com. “We lost 100-something runs last year. And that was basically the story. That was basically the tale of why everything came about as it did. The defense had to do some more stuff. We had to throw the ball more. We had to pass protect more and all of that because the running game got knocked up.
“With the quarterback being a mess and the running-back situation, everybody being banged up, we were just unable to find it. So I think we’ll come roaring right back at it.“
