Browns, 49ers & Jets Reportedly Interested In Tyrod Taylor If He Ends Up Being Available

Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News is reporting that there are at least three teams known to have interest in signing QB Tyrod Taylor if the Bills do not pick up his option the coming days.

According to Carucci, the three teams to keep an eye on for Taylor include the Browns, 49ers, and Jets.

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, considering that they’re all in need of obvious help at the quarterback position.

Carucci mentions that a trade is a possibility for the Bills, but is still considered unlikely because of the terms of Taylor’s contract.

The Bills needed to decide whether to pick up his $27.5M option bonus by March 11.

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.

We’ll have more regarding Taylor as the news is available.
