Bills coach Rex Ryan officially tabs Tyrod Taylor as QB
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Bills coach Rex Ryan made the news official at a press conference Monday, naming Tyrod Taylor the team's starting quarterback, citing his "explosiveness" at the position, per The Buffalo News

Taylor has put up impressive numbers during the preseason, going 24-for-31 for 236 yards, but has not started a game since the 2011 Orange Bowl when he was the signal-caller for Virginia Tech. He has played in 14 games as a backup with the Ravens.

Ryan said that Taylor is "on top of what we are doing," and that with a team built to win now, Taylor gives them the best chance over fellow quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel. 

Taylor is scheduled to make $833,333 this season, but that figure could increase to $2 million with performance- and playing-time bonuses.

Report: Bills name Tyrod Taylor starting QB
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

After a wide-open quarterback competition, the results are apparently in for Bills coach Rex Ryan. According to FOX Sports insider Jay Glazer, the Bills are prepared to name Tyrod Taylor their starter for Week 1. 

Taylor has performed well in the preseason, earning the edge over EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel, perhaps due to his threat as a runner in addition to his passing ability. 

Taylor has yet to make an NFL start, appearing in 14 games in four seasons as a backup with the Ravens.

Bills release veteran RB Fred Jackson
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

In a somewhat surprising move, the Bills released running back Fred Jackson as part of their roster trimming on Monday, just days after the veteran returned from a hamstring injury and looked sharp, per the Buffalo News

Jackson was scheduled to make $2.35 million this season. Jackson had been with the Bills since 2006, and although he only had one 1,000-yard rushing season (in 2009), he was always a valuable resource out of the backfield. 

Jackson figures to draw attention from several running-back needy squads in the next few days.

Bills' Manuel gets start over Taylor, Cassel in third preseason game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bills coach Rex Ryan said EJ Manuel will get the start over Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel in the team's third preseason game Saturday against the Steelers. Taylor and Cassel have each started one preseason game.

"My plan was to give everybody opportunities," Ryan said Thursday. "Nobody can say nobody wasn't given a fair shot here."

Manuel has completed 13 of 22 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns through two preseason games.

Taylor has completed 12 of 18 passes for 114 yards. He also has rushed for a team-high 88 yards on 10 attempts through two games.

Cassel has appeared in just one game, completing 7 of 8 passes for 45 yards.
