I know the thread will be moved but wanted people to see it first!
Here is the full story:
I'm pretty sure Brady himself is flying Taylor in right now
wont be surprised if bb or even brady at least makes a call.
OMFG WE NEEED HIM!
I'm sure there won't be any interest from New England. :singing:
Sounds like a potential Junior Seau type signing... stay by the phone, hang out with the kids, we will call around mid-august, enjoy your summer.
That was a waste of $$ last year.
Odds that Belichick has already called Taylor....?
Dude, they've already been on the phone, for SURE.
Didn't catch the link on this one and can't seem to find it elsewhere. Could you post it - thanks.
This is great news. I know Brady likes him, and he's sure caused us enough problems in the past to be worth signing. That'd be awesome. Make no mistake-- he's still good too, I think.
I don't necessarily believe this, but... any chance there were ripplings of this news prior to the Pats trading away Vrabel?
but if bb is hell bent on infusing youth in our team then he may actually shy away from taylor esp if he costs this high (8.5 mill $)
If he's concerned with spending time with his family, he may accept a lot less if it means the Pats will let him report late.
$$$.. ANd they gave up their 2nd round pick for him.. holy crap batman!
also if taylor wants seperate clauses on off season workouts etc, BB wouldnt want to effect that with the team concept and offering special concession even before he has played a down for the team . these are some what potential issues to him coming here
Belichick always gives veterans time off in camp. If that's what it takes to get Jason Taylor here, he'll do it. I'd have to imagine his phone's ringing off the hook, but I'd also have to imagine the Patriots will be bidding hard for his services.
Now are we talking about turning Taylor into an OLB here?
YouTube - Just Do It, Do It!!!
well he does for sure , no doubt. but it reallyisnt officially announced or agreed upon through the paperwork or the media, the kind which brett favre did. BB lets brady skip the workouts and other players too who have proven their value to the team.
iam not saying its a huge issue but something that can be sorted out.
I think so. I can't vouch for his play last season, but as of two seasons ago, we now he has the athleticism for it.
I think we'd HAVE to. Isn't he too small to be a 3-4 DE?
money is a factor also. we cut vrabel who is going to be 34 for money maybe and bring in taylor who is the same age and maybe spend more money and who needs to learn the system somewhat again.
Hopefully the "come here for less, even for one year, and be an invaluable contributor to what could be one of the best teams in history" pitch resonates with him. Instant upgrade over Vrabel, and gives us more time to groom Crable.
exactly how much money do any of you think Taylor will command after being dropped by the Skins?...more than 2 mil a season? 3 mil?...low base with incentives NOT a possibility?
How much less than 8.5 million dollars is he willing to accept?
Yeah, this is a bit weird, that way. Is Taylor, at this point, better than Vrabes for the same money?
Hm. I still think we need to find a younger guy, even if Taylor came as a pass rusher. And in that case, Peppers would be a no go, cuz it's hard to picture him in space (based on limited game tape I've seen).
My $ says Parcells will bring him back.
He was out most of last season with an injury!!I rather grab Peppers who is younger!!
