While the Buffalo Bills have insisted they don't want to negotiate with their quarterback through the media, that seems to be what happened Thursday.
The simple truth to the matter is that Taylor signed a deal last offseason having never started a game in his career. That deal is now a steal for the Bills -- who are already hemmed in by the salary cap. Buffalo doesn't have much incentive to pay a quarterback with just 14 starts to his name huge money. There are still questions about Taylor's durability, and play, including concerns coaches had last year about his ability to see the middle of the field.
With the ability to wield the franchise tag next season, if necessary, the Bills hold most of the cards. Bakari can do all the interviews he wants and blast Taylor's coaches or teammates. In the end it's doing little to help his client, especially within the locker room.
