Summary

Cleveland traded the 65th overall pick for Taylor in March, knowing that they were going to be selecting a rookie quarterback that they didn't want to be a Week 1 starter. While far from an upper-echelon quarterback, Taylor is a proven starter in the league who will allow Cleveland to bring Baker Mayfield along slowly. Taylor will become a free agent after this season, so his stay in Cleveland might be a short one. But this season will allow him to show other teams his leadership and mentoring ability as he heads into free agency. (May 6)

Browns | Tyrod Taylor a change of pace for Cleveland (Tue Jul 17, 12:11 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor attempted 1,236 passes and threw 16 interceptions in his three seasons with the Buffalo Bills. By comparison, Browns quarterbacks threw 28 interceptions in 574 attempts last season.

Our View: Taylor is one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the league. He doesn't take a lot of chances with the ball, either running or throwing the ball away in the face of trouble. Taylor is the heavy favorite to open the 2018 regular season as the starter even though the Browns spent the no.1 overall pick on QB Baker Mayfield. They've got a Week 11 bye this year, and that may be around the time that Mayfield takes over if he doesn't win the job outright in training camp.
