Bills shed little light on futures of Taylor, Dennison

Bills shed little light on futures of Taylor, Dennison

Here's to hoping Taylor is alright after enduring such a painful hit.

So who will be under center for the Bills in 2018?

-General manager Brandon Beane did not lay all of the blame for the offense's failures on quarterback Tyrod Taylor. We asked our panel of ESPN NFL insiders to weigh in. They are well stocked with four of their eight draft picks this April coming in the top 60.

Mike Clay, NFL writer: Sam Bradford.

Williams has no timetable for a decision on his future playing career, but Buffalo's GM made it clear they would welcome him back with open arms. Bradford makes a ton of sense as a solid veteran who plays efficient ball - a logical fit for a run-first team that wants to lean on its defense. Each year is different, one from next. He has been named to two Pro Bowls - including this year's all-star game - and avoided negative publicity since signing with Buffalo. "There was definitely an exchange, and I think there's a misunderstanding of what was said". A lot depends on whether the Bills decide to keep offensive coordinator Rick Dennison or, if not, what sort of quarterback they see fitting their scheme.

But, the season also had its highs. Still, he was far and away the team's best defensive tackle and its most valuable leader. Of course, Smith would be a good fit lots of places.

I say NO THANKS!", one punter wrote angrily in response to a news story about the change, despite it not in fact being a poll. Maybe we just sat back and laughed at their utter country hipster nonsense until tears streamed down our faces.

This week, The Buffalo News will be gauging fan approval ratings for a number of Bills coaches and players. "Now it's, we've got a foundation to build on".

Then again, other communities may not have delivered hundreds of thousands of dollars in charitable donations to players from other teams - in our case the Cincinnati Bengals -for the simple act of scoring a touchdown that helped them break a playoff drought. Taylor failed to do anything with three shots from there, and the Bills blew a red-zone opportunity because they chose to attack the league's best secondary on the goal line despite having one of the worst passing attacks and receiving groups in the NFL.

The offensive interference call that followed pushed them back. Given Taylor's ability to create outside of the pocket, and his low turnover rate, he could be a fit as the starter in '18 if the Broncos cater to his talent with scheme and game plan. "It was definitely what I expected and more". The window is closing on the Demaryius Thomas/Emmanuel Sanders duo, and the Broncos' defense is still one of the league's best.

The Bills snapped a 17-year drought in dramatic fashion. He finished with 95 tackles, five interceptions, one fumble recovery, 13 passes defensed, and two sacks. They have the ammunition to move up in the draft to get the quarterback they need, and they should. "But he'll tell you he has weaknesses to work on just like a lot of other guys". Denver seems to be determined to prove it can win with adequate QB play, and Taylor can certainly give them that.

And just before the Bills' season ended, Peterman added one more to his collection of turnovers, when he hurled a pass late in Sunday's 10-3 wild-card round loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars that landed on the hands of Jags cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Only three other National Football League teams have gone longer since their most recent playoff win: Cincinnati (1990), Detroit (1991) and Cleveland (1994).
