Bills Extend Tyrod Taylor Fans Shrug

By Steve

Where are the hotttt taeks???!??! It seems like hashtag billsmafia is pretty ambivalent about Tyrod Taylor's new "6 year $90 mil extension".

There are offsets, limited gaurantees, incentives and a few years of contract talk silence but no anger or joy. Interesting.

The Bills could have just paid tiny Ty the $3 mil he was owed this year and tagged him for $20ish next year. But they still would have had this hanging over their head and had rumblings by players about committing to the players. So they signed him earlier than expected at a decent price.

He's only played 14 games and was average (well a bit better than average) last year. He was seemingly always hurt albeit only missed 2 games and "made the pro bowl" whatever that means.

$15 mil per puts him at about 22nd in the league in pay at his position. Isn't that about right?

The deal will either look great in 3 years or horrible. Taylor could outplay the contract and hold out for more money in a few seasons (which would mean hes playing really well) or he could be cut after next season.

So the correct response is a shrug. No more contract talk, its now time to put up and stay healthy.

Oh yeah and fire Russ Brandon.
