One week after acquiring Matt Cassel in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings, the Buffalo Bills added another veteran quarterback to the roster on Thursday, when they announced the signing of former Baltimore Ravens backup Tyrod Taylor.
A 2011 sixth-round pick out of Virginia Tech, Taylor never started a game in four seasons with the Ravens. In limited action, Taylor completed just 19 of 35 passing attempts for 199 yards, with zero touchdowns and two interceptions.
That said, Taylor is just 26 years old and brings intriguing athleticism to the position. He is unlikely to ever be a viable starting quarterback in the NFL, but he at least deserves a shot to compete for the Bills’ starting job, given their lack of a sure No. 1 signal-caller.
