Tyrod Taylor didn’t play Sunday for the Bills, and he voiced his thoughts on his own benching Monday morning.
That decision is on them, Taylor said, via WKBW. I feel like Ive done enough as far as my play to be the starter here. It wasnt like I was outplayed, it was simply taken from mea€| and that decision came from them. Well see what the future holds.
With Taylor benched, EJ Manuel and Cardale Jones combined for 15 of 31 passing for 182 yards, no touchdowns, an interception and a fumble during Sunday’s loss to the Jets.
If Johnny Manziel is serious about a future in the NFL, the Spring League is willing to provide him with a platform to prove he’s still relevant, Woods told the AP.
Manziel, of course, has been in the news for all the wrong reasons since the Cleveland Browns picked him in the first round of the 2014 draft. But Manziel told ESPN this week he is sober and ready to return to football at any level.
A pre season game, anything I don’t care what it is, he wrote. Only need one team to believe in me and I’ll do anything to make that a possibility.
Rice hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2013 season after being involved in a highly publicized domestic abuse incident. Young hasn’t played in the NFL since 2011, but like Manziel and Rice, would bring name recognition.
The four-team Spring League will start training April 5 at The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Teams will play a total of six games in a three-week period. The emphasis is on signing young players on the fringes of the NFL.
Longtime NFL scout John Peterson will serve as league president.
