Report: John Elway inquired with the Buffalo Bills about Tyrod Taylor

According to a report, John Elway inquired about Tyrod Taylor.

Last year, Tyrod Taylor had two offers on the table in free agency. He could join the Buffalo Bills and compete for the starting job or he could accept more money from the Denver Broncos to backup Peyton Manning. Denver also had Gary Kubiak as their head coach, Taylor's former offensive coordinator in Baltimore. It would have been easy for Taylor to take the money and run, but the quarterback instead chose the opportunity to become a starting quarterback.

The rest is history. Taylor signed with the Bills and won the quarterback job in training camp. In 14 starts, Buffalo went 8-6 with Taylor under center and the quarterback threw for 3,035 yards, 20 touchdowns, and six interceptions. He added 568 yards on the ground as well. 

Things didn't exactly go poorly for Denver. The team won the Super Bowl. Denver's defense was so dominant that neither Manning or Brock Osweiler had to play spectacularly. Although the Broncos have little to complain about after their 2015 season, the team is now looking for a quarterback. Manning retired and Osweiler signed with the Houston Texans. As it stands, Mark Sanchez is penciled in as the team's starter. Needless to say, the Broncos are still looking for other options and according to a report, John Elway inquired about Tyrod Taylor.

Benjamin Allbright, a radio host in Denver, claims that the Broncos looked into the possibility of adding the quarterback they attempted to sign last season.

Although the Bills are looking closely at quite a few quarterbacks in this year's draft class, there's little chance that Buffalo would deal Taylor. The quarterback is entering the final deal of his contract with Buffalo and if his strong play continues, the Bills will do everything in their power to re-sign Taylor long-term.
