Browns coach Hue Jackson still plans for Taylor to enter Week 1 as the starter, but Jackson did acknowledge the possibility Baker Mayfield could make an unexpected push for the job, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. "We have a plan and I want to work that plan as much as we can,'' Jackson said. "Now, can a player supersede that? You never know. I haven't had that happen, but right now this team is going to be led by Tyrod Taylor.''

Referencing Taylor, who the Browns recently acquired in a trade with the Bills, coach Hue Jackson confirmed that the 28-year-old is "going to be the starting quarterback (in 2018). There is no competition," Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane reiterated Wednesday that the team has no plans to cut Taylor before he's due a $6 million roster bonus March 16, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "Tyrod is on our roster right now and that's the plan," Beane said. "We're just taking it day by day. We're trying to get better everywhere, so we're looking at every position including quarterback, but Tyrod did a lot of good things for us. So I'm not really worried about the [roster] bonus."

Taylor (concussion) said he would like to remain the quarterback of the Bills, but he will not accept another pay cut to do so. "Nah, that's not really part of the plan right now," Taylor told The Buffalo News on Friday. "Definitely not part of my mindset. I've done that before (last year, when he accepted a $10-million salary reduction over two seasons). I don't think there's a need to do that again. That's definitely not part of my mindset."

2018

2017

Is the glass half full or half empty with Taylor? The Bills can't seem to decide. They wanted to keep him around this year but forced a contract restructuring that cost him $6 million. He takes care of the ball, throwing the fewest interceptions the last two seasons (12) other than Tom Brady (min. 600 attempts), with the third-lowest INT rate at 1.5. Taylor is also the leading rusher among QBs the last two seasons, and his 10 rushing scores are second only to Cam Newton's 15. However, Taylor's completion rate has been mediocre (19th), and his YPA dropped by more than a yard last year. On paper, the exchange of Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods for Jordan Matthews and Zay Jones may not pay immediate dividends, but Taylor can take solace in the fact the new duo is a good bet to remain on the field for the entirety of the season. Complementing Matthews and Jones will be veterans Andre Holmes and Philly Brown, but LeSean McCoy's presence means Taylor will likely remain a caretaker of the offense.

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.
