The Buffalo Bills search for a franchise quarterback is a work in progress as the team tried to build on a Wild Card playoff run in 2017.

Bills General Manager Brandon Beane hasn’t talked specifics, but it is clear that the Bills will be looking for a potential franchise quarterback in the offseason.

The Bills owe Taylor a $6 million roster bonus if he remains on the team into the new league year and his unimpressive, inconsistent play will likely motivate Buffalo to turn the page on his tenure with the team.

Beane said, during an appearance on WGR 550, that the teams with franchise quarterbacks are the ones who consistently make the playoffs.

Beane also admitted that while it is a team effort in deciding on a player, the final decision ultimately comes down to him.

“It’ll be a collaborative deal, [but] at the end of the day, it’ll be my decision to make,” Beane said, during the appearance.

“Sean [McDermott] and I will talk things out, and we talk out a lot of things. Everyday stuff here, things that happen in the week, in the games, and we talk about those decisions and plan them out. We will go through a lot of those scenarios leading up into the draft, but you do have to have one final voice to make that call. I’ll do that, but everything will be a collaborative [effort]. Sean will be very involved in the process.”

With 6 picks in the first 3 rounds of the NFL draft and options on the free agency market, the Bills look to be making a significant move towards finding their next franchise signal caller.
