BlingGate: No Diamond Mouthpiece for Taylor

Tyrod Taylor will not be wearing a diamond-studded mouthpiece on Sunday per his agent.

Earlier today, TMZ Sports reported that Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor would be wearing a diamond-studded mouthpiece in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts. It turns out that the report was inaccurate.

On Monday, Taylor's agent, Adisa Bakari, told ESPN that TMZ's report was "a complete fabrication." According to Bakari, Taylor has never had a discussion with Dr. Michael Wright about a diamond-studded mouthpiece. In addition to this, Bakari added that the Bills quarterback and his family were offended by TMZ's report. 

Earlier in the day, Bills center Eric Wood spoke out on the report on Twitter.


Tyrod Taylor will be under center for the Bills on Sunday--with some sort of mouthpiece in--when Buffalo takes on the Indianapolis Colts.
