When Tyrod knew a deal was close

He said at the outset of training camp that he had not talked to his agent at all. He made the choice to focus only on football and let his agent handle the contract talks. So how and when did he find out a deal was close to being completed?

“Like I told people at the press conference on day two of training camp I had not been in contact with my agent throughout camp. I wanted to keep the contract talks away from my mindset and focus on football and getting better,” Taylor told Buffalobills.com. “But he shot me a text a couple of nights ago that we were really close. That’s basically all I told him to inform me, that when we were close to let me know.

“Up until then there’s no need for me to think about it. Am I happy that it got done? Very happy and now I can just truly focus on football.”

With the preseason opener a day away, Taylor had the good fortune of having his parents on hand to witness him signing his contract extension.
