Contract Notes

Tyrod Taylor signed a five year, $90 million extension with the Buffalo Bills on August 13, 2016. Contract details come via a report by Mike Rodak of ESPN. Taylor’s initial guarantee consists of $37 million of which $9.5 million is guaranteed upon signing and another $27.5 million is guaranteed for injury only. In 2017 the Bills can exercise a $15.5 million option on Taylor. If the Bills decline the option and fail to release Taylor, Taylor’s 2017 salary wil escalate to a fully guaranteed $27.5 million. If the Bills pick up the option an additional $27.5 million in fully guaranteed salary can be earned in 2017 and 2018. Taylor can also earn additional incentives for performance.

The dead money for the Bills if they release Taylor and decline the option is $2.85 million ad they will save $13.06 million in cap space. The numbers listed here represent a full option pickup.

Prior to the start of the 2017 league year the Bills and Taylor agreed to a new two year contract in lieu of picking up Taylor’s option. The new contract is worth $30.5 million with $15.5 million guaranteed at signing. The contract voids if Taylor is on the Bills roster 5 days after the start of the 2019 waiver period. If the two sides do not reach an agreement on an extension the prorated money from the 2020 and 2021 years will accelerate onto the Bills 2019 salary cap. The new contract saved the Bills $6.2 million in cap space in 2017.
