Tyrod Taylor to stay with the Bills

With the Bills, Taylor flourished in the run game, totaling 1,148 yards and 10 touchdowns on 199 carries. "I've gotten a chance to know Tyrod and study him over the past several weeks and he is both a great person and competitor".

Taylor has posted a 14-14 record since taking over as the team's starting quarterback back in 2015.

The soon-to-be free agent linebacker hinted that his time with the Bills was over on Wednesday.

One week later the Bills have made a decision to move forward with Tyrod Taylor after he agreed to restructure his contract. ESPN's Adam Schefter recently reported the Bills would have owed Taylor a $15.5 million roster bonus if he was on the roster March 11, which also would have guaranteed more than $30 million of his contract. But since the arrival of new head coach Sean McDermott, the sentiment has started to shift toward keeping Taylor in the fold.

Ultimately, Huddersfield was outclassed, which was to be predicted after making nine changes from its first-choice lineup. There was sarcastic applause from some City fans when he saved Huddersfield's second shot on goal just before halftime.

Taylor threw for 3,023 yards and 17 touchdowns in 15 games past year for Buffalo.

Especially with the firing of Rex Ryan at the end of last season and Taylor being benched, it was unclear of how the team would handle the Taylor situation. Are you happy to see him back with the Bills?

Although terms of the contract restructure haven't been announced, it's safe to say that Taylor won't be getting anywhere the money he was supposed to get under his old deal. The Bills had until Saturday to determine whether to pick up the extension Taylor signed in August or part ways with the two-year starter.
