Cassel, on Friday, hinted otherwise.
"I don't know if they want to go into depth about what the conversation was about, who's going to be No. 2 or No. 3," Cassel said, per ESPN's Mike Rodak. "But every indication was made that we're probably gonna keep three quarterbacks, and that's all I can go off of right now."
It's not a terrible idea considering that Taylor has yet to start an NFL game. He displayed mobility and a live arm during the preseason, but Taylor's success came against defenses that barely game-planned for Buffalo's offense. Cassel is no longer starting material, but coaches might want to keep him around to tutor their young starter behind the scenes.
