Ravens free agent quarterback Tyrod Taylor is visiting the Buffalo Bills, according to a league source— Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) March 11, 2015
Word emerged Tuesday afternoon that newly-acquired quarterback Matt Cassel did not initially pass his physical with the team thanks to a broken foot sustained last season; Cassel was eventually passed and will be introduced as a Bill in a press conference on Wednesday, but the Bills may be anxious to get a second veteran quarterback onto the roster just in case.
I'm told hangup in Matt Cassel trade was his broken foot. Cassel initially failed his physical, but Bills noted the risk then passed him.— Tim Graham (@ByTimGraham) March 10, 2015
Taylor, who will be 26 in August, is a fifth-year pro that has spent the entirety of his four-year career to this point situated behind Joe Flacco on the depth chart in Baltimore. A highly athletic quarterback, the 6'1", 208-pound veteran has only attempted 35 career passes, and has also run the ball 27 times for 136 yards and a touchdown in his career. In Buffalo, he would have a far better shot at playing time than he's yet had in his career, with Cassel and EJ Manuel the only other viable quarterbacks on the roster.
