    I'm pretty sure Brady himself is flying Taylor in right now :)

    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.

    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.

    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?
