The Cleveland Browns made a lot of great acquisitions this off-season but one move that’s being overlooked is the addition of Tyrod Taylor. Taylor was treated very unfairly in Buffalo but the 28 year old quarterback does do some things very well. One area of Taylor’s game that deserves a lot of praise is his ability to protect the football. Taylor has 51 touchdowns and only 18 interceptions over the course of his seven year career. That means Tyrod Taylor has averaged only 2.5 interceptions per season and the Cleveland Browns will largely benefit from that kind of ball security. Taylor is pretty good from a completion percentage too so it clear this a solid football player and the Bills might seriously regret letting him go. For Taylor though this was the best thing that could have possibly happened to him. Cleveland is going to be a much better situation for him especially after the Browns acquired Jarvis Landry and Carlos Hyde. Not only that but Hue Jacksons and the front office want Taylor. Cleveland was eager enough to go out of their way to trade for the journeyman quarterback. There’s nothing like a vote of confidence and lets be honest complimentary talent goes a long way as well. When you really observe the situation you can see that this is an ideal fit for the former Virginia Tech signal caller. It would be nice to see the Browns draft two players that can help Taylor win in 2018 instead of a QB. It’s very unlikely that any incoming rookie is going to give this organization more than Tyrod Taylor can. Therefore there’s no sense in a drafting a QB if you’re the Browns because that’s a player who is just going to sit on the sidelines for a couple years. Why not load up on talent and try to make a run this season?
