Tyrod Taylor Believes He’s Done Enough To Remain Starter


Following the firing of Rex Ryan, the Buffalo Bills made another important decision ahead of their regular-season finale versus the New York Jets. Interim head coach Anthony Lynn elected to bench Tyrod Taylor in favor of EJ Manuel.

However, this was probably more of a business decision than anything.

In the offseason, Buffalo must decide if they’ll pick up Taylor’s option in March. If they do, he would be set to make $27.5 million next season after the $15.5 million bonus.

Taylor finished the season with 17 touchdown passes, 3,023 yards, and a quarterback rating of 89.7.
