The Buffalo Bills traded quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns for the 65th pick in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft. 

Taylor’a record with the Bills is 23-20 record in 43 starts since 2015. Taylor averaged 6.66 yards per pass attempt and threw for 14 touchdowns in 2017, short of his career highs set in 2015 of 8.0 yards per attempt and 20 touchdowns. He also compiled an 89.2 passer rating and a 53.0 QBR number.

The Bills signed Taylor to a five-year contract extension before the 2016 season that could have allowed him to earn $90 million. After Taylor posted a losing record in 2016, he accepted a renegotiated contract last year that eliminated the final three seasons and included a significant pay cut.


Taylor completed 17 of 37 passes for 134 yards, one interception and a 44.2 passer rating before leaving with a concussion in the fourth quarter of the Bills’ wild-card playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Taylor ends his Bills career as the franchise’s all-time leader in passer rating (92.5) among quarterbacks to have started at least one game. His 1,575 rushing yards are also the most in franchise history among quarterbacks.
