Summary

Taylor enters his third year as a starter, but his situation is not firm. The Bills hesitated when it came to reworking his contract and didn't make a real long-term commitment to him when they did come to terms. He's going to have to fight for work with Cardale Jones, TJ Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman. If he can't separate from them, it'll be a bad look. If he does win the job, two things make that job tougher. One, his constantly injured and sub-average receiving corps and second, the run-first offense. The first the team is hoping will be improved by the addition of rookie Zay Jones, but you can tell the franchise has doubts about Sammy Watkins because they declined to take his fifth year option. The Bills have said they will still lean on the run and while they threw more than they ran - 474 attempts compared to 382 -but they are still below par for the rest of the NFL. That makes his lower touchdown total - 17 (23 if you count his rushing touchdowns) - more of an issue. Those factors combined makes Taylor unreliable most weeks. (May 22)

Bills | Tyrod Taylor a work in progress (Sat May 20, 10:39 PM) - Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor needs to 'trust his eyes' more and is still a work in progress when it comes to knowing when and where to throw the ball, according to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

Our View: The Bills don't seem terribly sold on Taylor as their future at the position. The new regime kept him around in 2017 (because he restructured his deal) and they should diagnose his play under a microscope this year. Cardale Jones has a big arm, but he's raw as a decision maker. Rookie Nate Peterman will be interesting to watch to see how he develops as a pro. New GM Brandon Beane has declared this an "open competition" at quarterback, but we think it's Taylor's job...for this year at least.
