The Bills have apparently decided that one year of Tyrod Taylor was enough to make him their quarterback of the future.

According to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, the Bills negotiations with Taylor “have been hammered out,” which ostensibly means a deal is near.

While there are no details, he does mention that it isn’t a “bridge contract,” and that the Bills are “all-in” on a deal which could be up to six years.

After Kirk Cousins and Brock Osweiler, giving big contracts to guys who have performed for fewer than 16 games isn’t necessarily novel.

Taylor flourished in his first opportunity as a starter, and the Bills have made it clear they were willing to do a deal for him. We’ll see when the details emerge how much of a commitment they’ve made.
