NFL free agency hits its unofficial beginning as the franchise tag period gets underway.

Tyrod Taylor may be switching teams, but he isn’t switching cities or even stadiums.

The 34-year-old free agent quarterback has agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $18 million with the New York Jets, NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reported.

Taylor has bounced around the NFL since being drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the 2011 draft, and the Jets will be his seventh team.

Taylor has spent the last two seasons in New York with the Giants. After appearing in just three games in 2022, Taylor made 11 appearances and five starts in 2023, completing 64.4% of his passes with five passing touchdowns and three interceptions.

Their QB room currently features only Jones, Tommy DeVito and Tommy Eason.
