NFL Free Agency: Quarterback Tyrod Taylor turns a down deal from Broncos

What does this say about Osweiler?

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

According to ESPN's Mike Rodack, free agent quarterback Tyrod Taylor turned down a richer deal from the Denver Broncos to sign with the Buffalo Bills. The opportunity to start in Buffalo was the main reason he signed with the Bills instead of the Broncos.

Taylor signed a three-year deal with the Buffalo Bills that could total seven million if he earns the starting quarterback position there.

Taylor has backed up quarterback Joe Flacco the last four seasons, and spent last season with new Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak who was the Ravens offensive coordinator.

This is an interesting development regarding backup quarterback Brock Osweiler. Why would the Broncos offer a backup quarterback a decent deal when they have trust in their so-called "quarterback of the future"? Denver Broncos General Manager has spoken positively about Osweiler ever since they spent a second-round selection on him. However, it does make one wonder if Gary Kubiak isn't as high on quarterback Brock Osweiler as we assumed he would be.

I am making assumptions here, but this is interesting. This interest could mean nothing about the Broncos thoughts on Osweiler, or it could mean everything. We'll have to wait and see if the Broncos target another young quarterback in free agency, or if they take one early in next months NFL Draft.

Maybe Ian wasn't wrong after all?
