Tyrod Taylor - "How things ended (in Buffalo) is motivation for this year"

August 14, 2018 - 4:25 pm

Cleveland Browns quarterback and former Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor spoke about his time with the Bills on Tuesday, leading up to the Bills heading to Cleveland to face the Browns on Friday night. 

Taylor had some positive things to say about Buffalo, and how he won the starting spot under center as a player that no one knew coming into Bills camp three years ago, "When I walked into Buffalo, a lot of people didn't really know my name, I was able to win the starting job and was able to break a 17-year playoff drought. There was a lot that was accomplished in those years, thankful for those opportunties and moreso glad for the opportunity I have here (in Cleveland)." 

Taylor also had fond memories of the flight home after the Bills had made the playoffs and broek the drought, "For a team that hadn't been to the playoffs for 17 years, to come home after we beat Miami on New Year's... to see the fans out in the snow as the plane approached back in Buffalo, it was definitely special to see." 

While Taylor had good things to say about Buffalo, he is motivated by how the Bills shipped him out this past offseason, "I think each year has its own way of motivating itself, but definitely how things ended there (in Buffalo) is definitely motivation for this year. Not necessarily this game, but this year." 

Taylor and the Browns host the Bills for each team's second preseason game on Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. Kickoff is at 7:30pm on Friday night, you can hear the game on the flagship station of the Bills, WGR 550.
