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.null
