"He is an absolute pain in the [expletive]. He’s got speed and athleticism, but he’s got a competitiveness to him. He embodies ‘be at your best when your best is required.’ He’s a guy that when you need to move the sticks, he moves the sticks. Arm is definitely a threat. Legs are just as much of a threat. He’s the true dual-threat type of guy."
— Jets defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich on Texans QB Tyrod Taylor.
