Tyrod Taylor: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Taylor showed up for voluntary offseason workouts this week and has announced himself fully healthy following offseason groin surgery, BuffaloBills.com reports. "This was my first time actually sprinting and actually doing full movement things," said Taylor, who just restructured his contract so he could stay with the Bills as the starter for at least one more season. "I've felt great since the surgery and the doctors here and the training staff have done a great job of getting me to 100 percent and I feel real good. I feel very explosive."

A decision on whether to keep Taylor or let his option pass will go right down to the wire. "I've enjoyed getting to know Tyrod and I've been impressed by his work ethic and he's won a number of games for this organization," new coach Sean McDermott told BuffaloBills.com. "Having said that the process continues. The decision making process that is. We're going to exhaust every resource, every avenue and every option available to us before we make that decision."

2017

2016

Signed off the bottom of the Ravens' depth chart, Taylor faced little opposition from E.J. Manuel or Matt Cassel in training camp and emerged as the Week 1 starter. It's easy to see what encouraged the coaching staff to hand him the keys to the offense despite his extremely limited resume, as Taylor was the league's second-leading rusher among QBs (behind Cam Newton), though his scrambling did leave him vulnerable to injury as he lost two games to a sprained MCL. He's not one-dimensional, however, also possessing the arm strength and accuracy to stretch the defense. Taylor finished third in 2015 in air yards per attempt, just behind gunslingers Carson Palmer and Ben Roethlisberger - while also finishing fifth in QB rating on passes longer than 15 yards. Despite those tools, the Bills never seemed comfortable letting him be the focal point of the offense, instead leaning heavily on their running game to keep the ball moving. A lackluster WR corps, especially when Sammy Watkins was sidelined, certainly played into that philosophy, but offseason comments by GM Doug Whaley also indicated that the front office isn't sold on Taylor as a franchise quarterback quite yet. Despite an impressive first season under center, he heads into 2016 with more to prove.

2015

Taylor overtook both EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel to land the Bills' top QB job in late August. The 26-year-old Virginia Tech product now merits fantasy consideration thanks to his mobility, with his overall upside on that front now resting in his ability to develop and maintain chemistry with the Bills' solid collection of pass-catching weapons.

2014

Taylor will compete with sixth-round rookie Keith Wenning for the right to serve as the Ravens' No. 2 quarterback for a fourth consecutive year. Joe Flacco has yet to miss a start through six NFL seasons.

2013

Taylor will compete against Caleb Hanie for the No. 2 quarterback job behind Joe Flacco. Taylor held down the role each of the last two seasons, making him a heavy favorite to beat out Hanie. Should something happen to the notably durable Flacco, Taylor's athleticism could lead to fantasy relevance.

2011

Taylor seems to be penciled as the backup behind Joe Flacco, which is surprising considering how raw Taylor is as a passer. He is a terrific athlete, however, with tons of upside should he develop properly.
