It was previously reported that Taylor was unwilling to take a pay cut, so it will be interesting to see what the details of the new deal are. Taylor had a team option upcoming that would have guaranteed him around $30 million more, so it’s possible the Bills lowered the guaranteed number while also giving Taylor an opportunity to earn more over the life of the contract.
Taylor, 27, threw for 3,023 yards with 17 touchdowns and six interceptions last season. He added 580 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.
