Draft Scout Tyrod Taylor News
08/31/15 - QB Tyrod Taylor will open the season as the Buffalo Bills' starter, according to multiple reports Monday.
Taylor, who was battling Matt Cassel and former first-round pick EJ Manuel for the job, will get the start against the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 13 in Week 1.
Taylor, a sixth-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2011, signed a three-year deal with the Bills in March. In his first four seasons, Taylor has played in 14 games, completing 19 of 35 passes for 199 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions.
The Bills acquired Cassel, who has started 71 career NFL games, in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings in March and drafted Manuel with the No. 16 pick in 2013.

"I don't have any regrets," Taylor said after completing 12 of 13 passes in Buffalo's 43-19 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday night. "That is one thing I told myself going into the competition is to leave everything out on the field, practice field and on the game field. At the end of the day I don't have any regrets. Like I said I am pleased with the way that I played. There is still some things to correct, there is still ways to get better."
