‘As Allbright noted, the move would presumably be for a quarterback. Buffalo currently has Tyrod Taylor and Nathan Peterman under contract, but the team may move on from their former starter. Taylor is owed a $6 million roster bonus if he’s still a member of the Bills on March 16. Even if Taylor stays, his contract runs out after the 2018 season. Buffalo needs to start thinking about their future and it’s clear that the team doesn’t feel that they have a franchise quarterback on their roster. The Bills could pursue a quarterback in free agency, but there could be a bidding war between QB needy teams for the likes of Kirk Cousins, Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater, Sam Bradford and A.J. McCarron.’
‘Taylor will carry an $18 million cap hit in 2018 if the Bills keep him on their roster. It seems like a steep price, but it could be a steal based on what other teams will be paying in free agency. Kirk Cousins seems destined to get a Jimmy Garoppolo type of deal while Case Keenum, A.J. McCarron, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford will all have suitors throwing money their way. Keeping Taylor may be a better option than getting into a bidding war for quarterbacks that aren’t franchise options.’
‘In terms of which quarterback Buffalo would like, Allbright hinted at two names: UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen and Wyoming’s Josh Allen. Most draft “experts” have mocked Rosen going first or second overall. The Cleveland Browns and New York Giants own those two picks, respectively. Allen is mocked all over the first round.’
‘It’s not as much a mystery as the NFL Draft’s “crapshoot” stereotype.’
