Jets, 49ers Interested In QB Tyrod Taylor

At least three teams are known to have an interest in signing Tyrod Taylor if the Bills release him: the Browns, 49ers, and Jets, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News writes. Of course, there could be more teams in on him if he is cut loose. Tyrod Taylor (vertical)

The Browns’ interest in Taylor came to light earlier this week, but this is the first we’re hearing of interest from the 49ers and Jets. Gang Green has watched Taylor blossom into a solid starter and they would like to be on the better end of the stick when Taylor breaks off his electrifying runs. The Jets tried their hand at having a mobile QB in the past with an over-the-hill Michael Vick and Tim Tebow, but this would be their first time with a legitimate athletic signal caller.

The 49ers were said to have interest in acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo via trade from the Patriots or signing Kirk Cousins as a free agent. Now that Garoppolo has been pulled from the trade block and Cousins has been hit with the exclusive franchise tag, the Niners are being forced to look at other options further down their list. Taylor would be a solid consolation prize, even if he wasn’t their Plan A or B. There has also been talk of SF going for a purely transitional option such as Matt Schaub. As of this writing, they do not have any quarterbacks under contract for 2017.

    Bills are not a very smart organization. If they loose Taylor there’s no replacement out there that compares to him. They can zigzag around this as much as they want but bottom line is, unless they get a Cousins or a Romo, there going backwards
    Both the Sabres and bills in same boat. A GM that is out of touch with reality. Oh well Another 3-5 yr. re building plan

      Agreed…they had no reason to move on from Tyrod except maybe the price tag…they should’ve tried to renegotiate a more palatable cap hit and kept him around to play now and to groom the next in line…not a good outlook for the Bills unless they make a splash of some sort

        The bills haven’t moved on from him there saying if the bills released him those are teams that would have interest

    For their own sake, I hope they are looking at him as a backup QB and not a starter.

    That’s the one QB that would be a perfect fit for the Jets, for the role they need to fill!

    I would love Taylor he looks like a guy with real talent when health. But would he be a good fit for Kyle style of offense?
