Taylor, 31, is a one-time Pro Bowler who has bounced around during his NFL career. He has played for the Ravens, Bills and Chargers in his career. With the Bills, Taylor was the starting quarterback, but has otherwise been a backup or bridge quarterback to younger players.
Signing Taylor will give the Texans some insurance in case Deshaun Watson stays true to his word and does not report for Houston. In the event that Watson is traded or doesn’t report to the team, Taylor brings plenty of years of experience to the team.
In his career, Taylor has passed for 9,770 yards, 54 touchdowns and 20 interceptions on 61.4 percent completion.
