The likelihood of the Browns acquiring Tyrod Taylor increased last week when the they hired quarterbacks coach David Lee, who spent the past two years coaching Taylor in Buffalo, where he went 14-14, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Lee likes Taylor a lot and would welcome continuing to work with him. By March 11, the Bills must decide if they’ll stick with Taylor and guarantee him $30.75 million, release him, or try to renegotiate.
According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, Taylor is unwilling to take a pay cut, and he and his agent, Adisa Bakari, are convinced there’s as much or more available on the open market over the next three seasons.
A 2011 sixth-round pick of the Ravens out of Virginia Tech, Taylor made the Pro Bowl in 2015 when he went 8-6 with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions.
