The Buffalo Bills are reportedly trying to trade quarterback Tyrod Taylor, but is what team would take a chance on Taylor’s contract? For the second straight offseason, Taylor’s situation is a bit complicated. He is due a $6 million roster bonus on March 16. The Bills would save $10.4 million in cap space if they trade Taylor before March 16 and $9.4 million they release him before March 16. If the Bills decide to pay that bonus, Taylor would become much easier to trade. A team trying to trade for Taylor would be inheriting a one-year, $10 million deal and would probably only need to give up a mid or late-round pick. Eating that money would be tough for the Bills, but they would essentially be paying $6 million for whatever compensation they could get for Taylor. Which teams would be interested? Here are a few who should be interested in Taylor. Arizona Cardinals After the retirement of Carson Palmer, the Cardinals are somewhat desperate for a quarterback. New coach Steve Wilks has made it clear he would like to add a veteran quarterback given that Arizona is built to win now. Taylor would be a solid fit for Arizona, where he would be surrounded by a more talented stable of pass catchers. Minnesota Vikings The Vikings are in the strangest quarterback conundrum of the offseason. Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater are all free agents. Bradford and Bridgewater both have significant injury questions, while Keenum has only flashed serious potential for one season. If the team decides to add another quarterback to the mix, Taylor would make some sense. Minnesota has a creative offensive coordinator who could take advantage of some of Taylor’s skills. Plus, Taylor could help mask some of the offensive line issues in Minnesota.
