Tyrod Taylor: Could he see the field in 2022?| #TogetherBlue



Tyrod Taylor is a well-known name for NFL fans. The quarterback had productive stints in a lot of teams and, while he was never able to truly stick as the franchise quarterback for any team, his quality is undeniable and he became a viable option as a bridge quarterback for a number of franchises.


It seems that history is repeating itself again as Taylor signed with the New York Giants to backup Daniel Jones during the season in case anything goes wrong. But those who pay attention know that there's a much stronger possibility to happen when September comes.


And it doesn't bode well for Jones.


The new general manager Joe Schoen has no ties to Daniel Jones and he won't have any problems cutting ties with the quarterback if he doesn't show substantial improvement this year. He's not Dave Gettleman, who drafted him and needed Jones to perform well in order to keep his job.


That's where Taylor comes into play. He's simply better than Jones and he'll probably outplay the current starter during camp. If it does happen, well, goodbye Jones. Why would you play someone who's worse than his backup if your job doesn't depend on him playing well? Perhaps an even better question would be 'why would you play the worse guy if your job depends on wins?'


Taylor is no elite quarterback, but he's no slouch either. He might be the right guy to bridge the 2022 season while the Giants look for more answers in the quarterback position, whether that's on the draft or by a blockbuster trade like the Los Angeles Rams and the Denver Broncos did previously. I think Taylor will be starting for the Giants when September comes.
