Jason Taylor to the New York Jets?
Didn't we say he was a shell of himself two years ago when the Washington Redskins traded to get him?
Don't get caught up in the name.
Taylor isn't very good anymore.
The Taylor that was among the sack leaders earlier this decade isn't around anymore. What we have now is a player who might be able to get five or six sacks. That's it.
The Jets paid him a reported two-year deal that is essentially a one-year deal for $3.75 million. The price isn't bad, but he isn't even worth that.
What's this move say about Vernon Gholston, the linebacker the Jets drafted two years ago in the first round? He's been a flop, but the Jets have talked him up some this off-season.
If Taylor is a playing over Gholston, let's just lay it out there. Gholston would be a full-fledged bust.
