Newly Acquired Jets QB Tyrod Taylor Already Making New York Football History

In the middle of the night while all was quiet Joe Douglas decided to splurge on a backup quarterback for Aaron Rodgers. 

Around 1:00amEST Wednesday, the Jets signed free agent QB Tyrod Taylor to a two-year/$18M contract. The journeyman passer spent the last two seasons with the Giants, so no travel whatsoever is needed as Taylor will still call MetLife Stadium his home. 

The signing comes while Zach Wilson is still on the roster. The former 2nd overall pick is still seeking a team that the Jets could trade him to. 

Despite being in the league for over a decade, ‘T-Mobile’ has only had 58 starts to post a 28-28-1 record. Tyrod started 5 games for Big Blue last season, posting a 2-3 record.

Tyrod Taylor is the pure definition of a journeyman quarterback, playing on 6 and now soon to be 7 different teams since he began his professional career in 2011. The Jets’ signing of the 34-year-old makes New York football history – Tyrod Taylor now becomes the second player ever to be under contract with all three New York football teams (Bills 2015-17/18, Giants 2022-23/24, Jets 2024-present).

The only other player to appear with all three New York sports teams is Marcus Dowtin, who played all of his 11 career games split between the Jets, Giants and Bills from 2012-13.
