Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley has reached out to Tyrod Taylor's agent about an extension.

The Buffalo Bills might try to lock up Tyrod Taylor sooner rather than later.

Everyone expects the Buffalo Bills to focus on re-signing Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito in free agency. At the NFL combine, general manager Doug Whaley said he feels confident about Buffalo re-signing both players.

However, the biggest news from Whaley's presser is that the Bills have reached out to Tyrod Taylor's agent on a contract extension. Whaley stated, "This is a week where we’ll delve more into it. We’ll see where it goes.”

Taylor is currently under contract for the 2016 season. He has a cap hit that is slightly over $3 million. 

The fact that Buffalo is already talking to Taylor's agent is a good indication that the Bills feel that Taylor is a franchise quarterback. Even if a deal cannot be worked out this offseason, the Bills and Taylor's agent can at least get an idea of what each side is looking for in a long-term deal. 

Buffalo has been searching for a franchise quarterback for many years. If they believe the QB is the real deal, the Bills will do everything in their power to get a deal done.
