Tyrod Taylor knows that a strong 2016 campaign will lead to a large raise in 2017. It's unknown whether or not that raise in salary will come from the Buffalo Bills or elsewhere, but Taylor is handling everything that's in his power through two OTA practices.
The quarterback has drawn rave reviews the last two days for his strong play at mandatory minicamp. Joe Buscaglia of WKBW-TV in Buffalo praised the quarterback yesterday and noted that Taylor is fitting passes into tight windows and throwing over the middle of the field.
"Starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor has done everything right over the past three weeks of work, and Tuesday was his most impressive day of the bunch. After a couple of errant passes early in the practice, Taylor was on fire with his accuracy — and not just with your standard throws to wide open targets. He was the most impressive player on Tuesday because he fed the ball into the hands of his receivers with a very small window, and he did so numerous times. During the offseason workouts, Taylor has done a couple of things that he didn’t really show during the season last year: throwing the ball over the middle of the field, and making tight window throws (except if it were to Sammy Watkins). Again, it’s way early, but the Bills have to be incredibly optimistic about Taylor’s potential progress as they get closer to training camp."
On Wednesday, Taylor picked up where he left off yesterday. Taylor deep ball was on point today with the quarterback finding Greg Little on a deep pass for a touchdown.
For the second straight day, Taylor has looked sharp.
Taylor will enter training camp as the team's starter, something that wasn't the case one year ago. The extra reps that Taylor sees with the first team unit will only benefit the QB and the team's offense. As the season approaches, Taylor knows that next year he'll see six-to-seven times the amount of money he's earning this year on average with a big season. So far, the quarterback is off to a good start.null
