Buffalo Twitter reacted quickly to an ESPN report that the Buffalo Bills traded quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns for a third-round draft pick, No. 65 overall.
The news seemed to come out of nowhere at 6 p.m. on a Friday, shocking many, including Taylor's now former teammates Tre'Davious White and Preston Brown. They weighed in with their disbelief on Twitter.

Many tweeters thanked Taylor for helping to end the Bills playoff drought.
Thanks for everything @TyrodTaylor. We'd be on year 18 without you. Didn't set the world on fire, but you weren't asked to. Did everything the team needed.

Browns fans were also clearly shocked at the news, but welcomed Taylor to Cleveland.

Now makes sense for Browns to take Baker Mayfield or Lamar Jackson to groom behind Tyrod Taylor. Similar skill sets. Seamless play calling.

Y’all say what you want. @TyrodTaylor is a baller and a helluva leader. Watch him work in Cleveland.
