For now, Taylor is fine with his role. The former sixth-round draft pick is playing on a winner, earning a decent paycheck and is appreciated by his teammates.
“He’s a great quarterback, man,” Ravens receiver Torrey Smith said. “I think a lot of people underestimated him coming out of the draft. You think, how did he even fall this far? Obviously, it’s tough for him because of Joe, but Tyrod can play. We’re both from Virginia, and I’ve known him since high school. I’m happy he’s on our team, because he can definitely do some damage. But he understands how it works. It’s a business, and you have to wait your turn.”
The 24-year-old Taylor is willing to be patient.
“Of course I want to start, but my job is to continue to stay prepared,” he said. “When the opportunity does come or whatever playing time I get, I have to continue to showcase my talent because other eyes are looking. But right now, it’s all about whatever it takes to win this game right here, this Super Bowl. So that’s my job this week.”
