Report: Tyrod says he won’t take a pay cut this offseason
By: Nick Wojton
No one knows what the Buffalo Bills are thinking about in regard to Tyrod Taylor.
But we now know what Tyrod Taylor thinks about the Bills.
According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, the quarterback who ended the team’s 17-year playoff drought wants to remain in Buffalo. But he’s not taking a pay cut.
“Nah, that’s not really part of the plan,” Taylor said to the Buffalo News.
Taylor, 28, cites his reason for refusing to do so is because he already did once last year when he left $10 million on the table over the next two years after restructuring his contract.
“I don’t think I need to do that again. That’s definitely not part of my mindset,” Taylor added.
To this point, Taylor said he’s still a Bill and despite speculation, nothing has been indicated otherwise by the team.
In 2017, Taylor had 186.6 passing yards per game, 14 passing touchdowns, 2,799 passing yards, and 427 rushing yards, all career-lows for Taylor.
Taylor played in 15 games this season and last season, after playing in only 14 his first season as a starting quarterback.
