Bills sign Taylor to new contract

WBFO's Mike Desmond

The quarterback question for the Buffalo Bills has been answered for the near future. The team has announced a new contract signed with Tyrod Taylor. The 6-year deal is worth $90 million, though there are incentives that could increase its value. There is a team option to escape the contract after the first year.

Taylor stated that he is pleased that the team showed confidence in him. "Them offering me a contract for this many years definitely shows that they're all in, that's what our phrase is for this year. As far as a mindset going to a game, having financial stability or not having it, I mean I'm a competitor from day one, so I'm going to go out there and give my all whether I'm under contract or not."

Taylor was 8 - 6 in 14 starts last year after being a career back up before joining the Bills.
