Taylor Wants to Be Long Term QB; Bills Haven’t Made Decision Yet

Tyrod Taylor

After a season during which Tyrod Taylor proved he was a legitimate NFL starting quarterback, the Bills have not made a move past next season.

General manager Doug Whaley has said that if a good deal arises for the Bills they would think about extending him early, though Taylor is one of the best deals in the NFL next season at his current salary.

Whaley also said that he wouldn’t think twice about drafting a quarterback if the right one fell to the Bills, clouding the organization’s long-term stance on Taylor, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports.

“Of course I want to be the long-term guy,” Taylor said Wednesday night at the Pro Bowl draft. “I love playing for the organization, I love playing for the coaches, I love being around the guys. Like I said, I want to be the long-term guy for them. Ultimately that’s up to them. I know I’m under contract for another year, but right now I’m out here just taking it all in.”

Taylor, like most of the players in attendance Wednesday, spent the evening mingling with the servicemen and women stationed at Wheeler Army Airfield. He signed autographs and took in some impromptu drills on the turf field behind the hangar.

“When you think about where you were a year ago, you sit back and reflect on how your year has been,” Taylor said. “I’ve been working hard, and God has blessed me of course.”
