Bills reach long-term extension with QB Tyrod Taylor
Friday August 12th, 2016

The Bills and quarterback Tyrod Taylor have agreed to a contract extension, the team announced Friday.

The contract is a six-year deal, with a potential out for the team after two seasons, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

Taylor signed a three-year contract with the Bills before last season, but the final year of the deal was voided after Taylor played more than 50% of the team’s snaps. Taylor was set to be a free-agent after this year before signing the extension.

A former sixth-round pick of the Ravens, Taylor became a full-time starter for the first time in 2015. He played in 14 games for Buffalo, posting an 8–6 record while throwing for 3,035 yards, with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions for a 99.4 passer rating. He also ran for four touchdowns.

Taylor will start again for the Bills this upcoming season.

In his career, Taylor has played in 28 games, posting a 95.0 passer rating.
