“We are excited about the opportunity to keep Tyrod with the Bills,” coach Sean McDermott said in a statement. “I’ve gotten a chance to know Tyrod and study him over the past several weeks, and he is both a great person and competitor. Doug and I are confident this was the best move for the Bills at this time.”
Rumors ran high that the Browns were on the short list of teams that had high interest in the 27-year-old, who has started 29 games over the last two seasons and went 14-14 in those starts.
