Report: Bills Not Planning on Cutting QB Tyrod Taylor

The Bills are not planning to cut quarterback Tyrod Taylor, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports via Kevin Patra of NFL.com.

“At this point, it doesn’t seem like they’re going to cut him without knowing who his replacement will be,” Rapoport said. “The Bills are OK with paying a $6 million roster bonus to keep him on the roster.”

The prevailing thought has been that Buffalo would move on from the 28-year-old quarterback either by releasing him or through a trade. While the latter option appears to remain on the table, per Rapoport, the Bills won’t simply jettison their starting quarterback at this time.

Taylor is due a $6 million roster bonus on the third day of the new league year to go along with a $10 million base salary in 2018. He restructured his contract last season, but will not entertain that route again.
