Taylor was a sixth round selection out of Virginia Tech by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2011 NFL Draft. He played there for four seasons, then bounced around to the Bills, Browns, Chargers, Texans and now the New York Giants.
He won a Super Bowl as Joe Flacco’s backup with the Ravens in 2013. Taylor earned his only Pro Bowl selection in 2015 as the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. He is 26-25-1 in his time as a starter, going 2-4 in his six starts with the Texans in 2021.
