Tyrod Taylor gaining traction as potential starting Buffalo Bills QB

Football News

It's been an exciting off-season for the Buffalo Bills and their fans, with plenty of change making them real AFC East contenders.

They have a new head coach who could well be the man to propel them to the playoffs in Rex Ryan, as well as pretty much a brand new offense that includes star running back LeSean McCoy right in the center of it.

What they don't have, however, is a proven quarterback. Which is why the Bills may be set to take a big chance on one player, Tyrod Taylor.

After Kyle Orton retired in the off-season, the Bills have been scrambling for a starting quarterback, realizing that EJ Manuel was a complete bust after making him the top drafted QB in the 2013 Draft which is famed for being a Quarterback wasteland.

 And then there is Matt Cassel, the perennial "take care of the football" backup, who was last seen being beaten out by Teddy Bridgewater.

Taylor Time?

And then there is Taylor, who has been turning heads and generating a buzz in a Bills fan base that is desperate for someone new, and the former Ravens man might just be it. It seems that Buffalo general manager Doug Whaley agrees with that.

“It’s a production-based business,” Whaley said. “He produced with the twos so we’re excited for him to get in there Thursday with the ones to see what he can do. Everybody knows what he can do with his feet. But I’m impressed with a couple of his throws.

“He’s got everything you’re looking for. We just have to make sure he can produce when his time’s called.”

Taylor is explosive and exciting, something the Bills have been sadly lacking. They will just be hoping that he can combine the impressive 20-yard rushes with threading the needle in the passing game to move the chains.
