The Buffalo Bills continue their preseason schedule Friday night with a road game against the Cleveland Browns.
The second pre-season game is more than just a tune-up game for the Bills, it's also a revenge game for one specific player in Cleveland.
For the first time since trading Tyrod Taylor in March, the Buffalo Bills will face Taylor in a game.
After starting for the Bills for 3 seasons, Taylor was shipped west down the Lake Erie shoreline for a 3rd round draft pick.
That 3rd round pick was then used to trade up to draft Tremaine Edmunds, the young middle linebacker that the Bills hope will sack Tyrod multiple times come game time.
The whole revenge factor is an easy and interesting story line for a pre-season game in which the final score doesn't actually matter.
"This game isn't about them, nor me or our relationship, it's about us taking another step and getting better, Taylor said. "It was a lot that was accomplished in those years, I'm thankful for those opportunities, more so glad for the opportunity that I have here. Of course when I walked into Buffalo a lot of people didn't really know my name, was able to win the starting job, as I left was able to break a 17 year playoff drought."
However, when Taylor was asked about the revenge factor for Friday's game he showed the poise and professionalism that he displayed during his 3 years representing the Bills.
