Tension between Bills, Tyrod Taylor reaches point of awkward passive-aggressiveness

Tyrod Taylor took a Snapchat on Thursday morning of himself apparently preparing for surgery.

Shortly after people noticed, the Bills’ public relations department released a passive-aggressive statement confirming the procedure.

[Taylor] had a consultation visit yesterday with Dr. William Meyers and elected to have surgery this morning. The Bills were informed late yesterday of this morning’s procedure.

McVay, 30, became the youngest head coach in league history earlier Thursday when the Rams hired him away from the Redskins, where he was offensive coordinator the past three seasons. Lane Kiffin, the previous youngest coach, was four months shy of his 32nd birthday when the Raiders hired him in 2007.

Phillips has been a head coach for six different teams, most recently on an interim basis with the Texans in 2013, and became one of the most sought-after defensive coordinators on the market when Broncos coach Gary Kubiak retired and Phillips wasn’t retained with the hire of defensive mind Vance Joseph on Wednesday.

The Rams already possess a stable of defensive talent, having ranked ninth in total defense in 2016, and it’s safe to bet they’ll be there again under Phillips next season. His defenses have finished in the top 10 in nine of the last 10 seasons, including first overall in 2015 when the Broncos’ vaunted unit led the team to a Super Bowl 50 victory.

The Rams are expected to announce Phillips’ hire Friday morning.rams_085
