  • An AFC senior scout tells Miller that OSU QB J.T. Barrett won’t be playing quarterback in the NFL.


Bills GM Doug Whaley said he thinks QB Tyrod Taylor has been even better for them this season.

“I think he’s better,” Whaley said on WGR 550, via “The one thing you can definitely hang your hat on is he does not turn the ball over. The other thing that we’re seeing now is like I said, he’s doing whatever it takes to get this team to put points on the board. That’s what it takes. Until they change the rules, if we score more points than the other team, let’s just figure out a way to do that. So I think he’s just continuing to get better and better.


Regarding the Cowboys’ quarterback situation, owner Jerry Jones mentioned that it’s a “great issue to have.

“I do have to say one more time, this is an absolute great thing to have this issue,” Jones said, per Jon Machota.
