Bills’ Tyrod Taylor Gets Medical Clearance

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor has been medically cleared from last month’s groin surgery, a team source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Taylor has a $27.5MM option bonus due on March 11th. Now that he has been given the greenlight from doctors, the Bills are now free to release him without having to worry about triggering an injury guarantee. Tyrod Taylor (vertical)

It has long been speculated that the Bills would move on from Taylor this offseason. When coach Rex Ryan and the Bills parted ways, Taylor lost his No. 1 advocate in Buffalo and that was underscored by his benching in Week 17. Now, it seems that GM Doug Whaley may push for rising sophomore Cardale Jones to take over as the starter in 2017. The 2016 fourth-round pick may or may not be elevated to the starting role, but it almost certainly won’t be Taylor under center.

When Taylor hits the open market, he’ll stand as one of the top quarterbacks available. The Browns have been connected to the mobile QB – particularly since hiring his former quarterbacks coach David Leethough they are probably prioritizing a Jimmy Garoppolo trade. The Jets and 49ers also face major uncertainty at QB, though we haven’t heard much about those two particular teams making a run at him.

    tyrod would be decent in SF if they don’t get cousins Jimmy or Watson. Shanahan did well his only season with RG3 and TT is arguably better than RG3.

    Cardale Jones will be an unmitigated disaster as a starter. I don’t understand that line of thinking, unless it’s a way to get Taylor to take less money.

      He was actually pretty decent against the Lions in a preseason game I attended, sure he was going against 2nd and 3rd stringers but he also had a practice squad receiving corp and was still pretty decent in person.
