Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyrod Taylor is scheduled to make a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills, according to a report from Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun.

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.

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.
