Tyrod Taylor would ‘love’ to get revenge against Bills in 2018
Tyrod Taylor has openly stated that he feels he deserved more support from the Buffalo Bills during the time he was with the team, and the quarterback is clearly carrying that perceived disrespect with him into the 2018 season.
In an appearance on NFL Network Wednesday, Taylor said he is “definitely motivated” by the way the Bills bailed on him and would love an opportunity to prove to them that they made a mistake.
“Definitely motivated. Things didn’t end the way I would’ve liked it to in Buffalo,” Taylor said, per Mark Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “We could possibly see those guys in the playoffs or we could knock those guys out of the playoffs. I would definitely love that. It definitely added motivation and I take it to work with me every day.”
You’d have to be insane to predict a playoff matchup between the Bills and Cleveland Browns, but you have to admire Taylor’s level of confidence. Hue Jackson has said Taylor is going to be the starting quarterback even though the team drafted Baker Mayfield, so Taylor should have plenty of motivation to reward his coach for believing in him.
Taylor said recently that he believes he did plenty to earn a job as Buffalo’s starter in 2018 and beyond, but the Bills chose to go in another direction. The chip Taylor has on his shoulder might lead to a few wins for the Browns this season, but making the playoffs seems like an impossible task.
