Bills HC Rex Ryan says QB competition to be open
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Bills head coach Rex Ryan has options at the quarterback spot going into the 2015 season. There will be competition for the starting spot this offseason.

“It’s going to be open,” Ryan told WGR radio, via the team’s official website.  “It’s a competition and whoever earns the job will be the guy that’s out there.”

The Bills currently have four quarterbacks on their roster including Matt Cassel, EJ Manuel, Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel. Ryan brokedown what each signal caller brings to the table.

“We have some talented guys and we’ll see what happens,” Ryan said.  “You bring in a veteran like Matt Cassel.  He’s done some pretty good things in this league.  He’s got that veteran presence about him.  With EJ back there just going into his third year I really believe EJ is going to improve with his fundamentals having [quarterbacks coach] David Lee here.  I love the fact that he’s a gym rat and he’s smart.  With our offense being multiple we’ll be able to get out of bad plays, so the mental part of it all of the quarterbacks we have should be able to handle that.

“With Taylor that’s going to be a young man, he’s probably the fastest quarterback in the league,” Ryan said.  “He’s explosive running the zone reads, and we’ll see where he’s at.  Then Tuel.  We’ve got guys there to work with.  That’ll be the important thing.  There will be competition, but a person has to earn the job.  It hasn’t been handed to somebody.”

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor in three-way battle to start
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor turned down more money in free agency to join the Bills, where he'll have the opportunity to compete for a starting job, NFL.com reports.

"There is going to be a competition," Taylor said. "No one is really ahead of the other guy right now. They're looking forward to us coming in and pushing each other to make this team better."

The Bills view Taylor as a zone-read possibility similar to the role 2013 first-round pick EJ Manuel was supposed to fill. Head coach Rex Ryan actually indicated he tried to acquire Taylor during his previous job.

"I actually tried to trade for (Taylor) when I was with the Jets," Ryan told CJCL in Toronto. "If he's not the fastest quarterback in the league, he's certainly up there with them. He's got great run skills. I'm not gonna say he's Russell Wilson, but he's got a little of that in him, where he's able to run zone-reads and pull the ball down and be effective."

Taylor, Manuel and offseason acquisition Matt Cassel are set to compete for the team's starting quarterback job heading into the 2015 season.

Backup QB Tyrod Taylor's time with the Ravens could be over
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Ravens backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor is contemplating his future as he is set to hit the free-agent market after backing up Joe Flacco the last four seasons. Taylor did not attempt a pass in 2014 for the first time in his career.

"That's the nature of the game," Taylor said of playing infrequently, per The Baltimore Sun. "I knew that coming into this situation. When I got drafted here, Joe was pretty durable. My job was to stay ready and I think I've done that in my time here. I've learned a lot.

"I've been reliable. The coaches have confidence in me. It's just a fresh start. I knew the reality was coming. I have had time to think about it and we'll see what's the plan moving forward."
