    I won't be surprise that him and the Pats will remain silent until after midnight tonight!

    No need--he's a free agent right now, and doesn't need to wait until FA officially begins.

    That's what I figured - he could sign whenever he wants to. I believe the only initial visits he scheduled were with Buffalo and us, so if that is true, it could be today when he picks and signs.

    I think there's a chance they'll visit with Warrick Dunn before agreeing to terms. His availability may have caused a wrinkle.

    As I've stated before, he was more productive than Taylor last year.

    Re: Fred Taylor - Any News?

    You gotta just chuckle a little bit.

    He visit's the Bills and before he's even on the plane out of town, there were many stories about how the interview went and how impressed he was with the team and people.

    Then he comes to Foxboro and..........well....nothing.

    It's really weird (I think) that they let FA visitors have time with Buffalo media. I don't understand that.

    Maybe. It sure does give us lot's to talk about when we don't know anything until it's meant for us too. Fun that way, though.

    Re: Fred Taylor - Any News?

    i wonder how much taylor would cost per season. i say this because there are reports on rotoworld that Derrick Ward's tag has gone down to 2.5M per season. living in NY i was able to see him almost every week. hes incredible running out of the shotgun, i dont think ive seen a running back look more comfortable or better running out of the shotgun like ward. with our offense, he would fit in nicely. i think he will get more than 2.5M and price himself out of our range, but he is certainly someone to consider if we seriously are thinking about adding another RB

    Re: Fred Taylor - Any News?

    The Providence Journal reports that free agent Fred Taylor is likely to join the Patriots.
    The paper believes Taylor, 33, "likely has at least three good seasons left." While that's far from likely, Taylor figures to come cheap and will be a candidate for significant early-down carries in New England. It appears he's choosing Bill Belichick's club over Dick Jauron's. Not exactly a tough one.
