As poorly as the Buffalo Bills performed in their loss to the New York Jets Thursday night, it turns out Friday was even worse. The team relieved offensive coordinator Greg Roman of his duties, but in typical Bills fashion, the story doesn’t just end there.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Bills owners Tim and Kerry Pegula held meetings with several of the Keenan Allen Jersey team’s key offensive contributors Friday morning. Head coach Rex Ryan, who said it was his decision to fire Roman, was conspicuously absent.
It is also a peculiar decision for the development of Tyrod Taylor, who signed a six-year contract extension with the team in August. Taylor signed with the Bills two months after Roman was hired and started 16 of the 18 games since.
If Taylor’s play Kellen Clemens Jersey drops off, it could mean the end of his time with the Bills as the team has flexibility in its new contract with the quarterback. Buffalo will have the choice to cut Taylor in March without taking a hit or pick up his option and keep him for the 2017 season, where he’ll be able to make as much as $27.5 million in salary and bonuses.
Lynn followed Ryan from the Jets to the Bills after six seasons as a running backs coach in New York. He previously had the same job with the Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars, and he has received head coaching interest in the past, reportedly interviewing for vacancies with the Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers.
The Bills finished the 2015 season with the No. 1 ranked rushing offense, leading the NFL in rushing yards, touchdowns and yards per attempt. Through the first two games of the season, the Bills have averaged just 3.5 yards per rushing attempt.
