Bills keep QB Tyrod Taylor on restructured contract

The most notable transaction was restructuring the contract of quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who had a team option that would guarantee him $27.5 million for the 2017 season.

The relationship between Taylor and the Bills had been warming for several weeks now, with Taylor staying in Buffalo to rehab, and the team hiring a compatible quarterback coach.

The Browns had been monitoring Taylor's situation closely because the Bills were not prepared to pay his roster bonus that would've triggered almost $31 million in guaranteed salary and bonuses while counting almost $16 million against the cap by March 11th as outlined in the extension he signed.

"We are excited about the opportunity to keep Tyrod with the Bills".

Prime Minister Muscat said the famous Mediterranean landmark had always faced destruction because of natural corrosion. The 50-metre-high limestone arch on the island of Gozo , in Dwejra Bay , attracted thousands of tourists a year.

Based on what's been said by McDermott and the Bills, I'm under the impression that they believe Taylor can provide stability to the offence while McDermott fixes the defence. "Doug and I are confident this was best move for the Bills at this time".

There was uncertainty about what might happen with Taylor, as the Bills had an option on the quarterback for the 2017 season. Since the start of the 2015 season, Taylor is 12th in the league in passer rating (94.2), 20th in completion percentage (62.6), 12th in yards per pass attempt (7.42) and sixth in touchdown-to-interception ratio (3.08).

In the meantime, Taylor is no longer on the horizon.

Set to make $30.75 million guaranteed this season, Taylor's newly minted pact will certainly bring that astronomical figure back down to earth while giving new coach Sean McDermott stability under center. If Taylor spends next season digging himself in as a middle-of-the-road starter, the Bills can start working on plans to replace him, either with Jones or a QB now outside the system.
