Benched Bills QB Tyrod Taylor ‘disappointed’ rookie Nathan Peterman named starter

Rookie fifth-round draft pick Nathan Peterman will start at quarterback this Sunday against the Chargers, Bills coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday morning.

Taylor, 29, completed just 9 of 18 passes for only 56 yards with an interception, his worst statistical performance since joining the Bills, before being replaced by Peterman.

A team captain, Taylor told reporters Wednesday (via ESPN.com) said he is “obviously disappointed” by the decision but has “move forward.”

“I don’t agree with the decision, but ultimately Coach McDermott has a vision for this team, what he feels is best for the team, as well as the owners and GM,” Taylor said. “So I have to move forward and continue to be the leader and teammate that I am from a different role.”

According to a report from ESPN, Jones told Goodell on a conference call, “I’m gonna come after you with everything I have.”

Jones used off-color language as he continued his threat.

“If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard, Bob Kraft is a p—y compared to what I’m going to do,” Jones said in reference to the Deflategate controversy and how the Patriots owner responded to the four-game suspension of Tom Brady.

As tensions between Goodell and Jones escalate, Jones has reportedly tried to impede Goodell’s contract extension while also threatening to sue the NFL.
