What next for Taylor?

So here's my question: What does Jason Taylor want to do with his life? The Washington Redskins were going to pay him $8.5 million if he just showed up for 75 percent of the off-season workouts -- which worked out to something like 25 days -- but Taylor said that was a no can-do.

So they cut him.

The Redskins wanted Taylor around because they figured someone his age -- and he's 35 -- should be at the facility getting himself ready for the coming season while acting as a mentor for younger players. Taylor saw it another way.

So what's next? "I don't know," said Washington's executive vice president of player personnel Vinny Cerrato when I reached him this afternoon. "I don't know that he wants to play."

One thing I do know: He doesn't want to play for the Redskins, and he made that clear with his refusal to participate in their offseason workout. Taylor was unhappy with things there anyway, figuring he could be an impact player if the club would move him back to his position at right defensive end.

The Redskins said they would, but only on passing downs -- which meant Taylor would occupy the strong side on first and second downs and move on third. That must not have met his approval. So he left. Now what? My guess is he listens to a playoff-caliber club willing to play him at right defensive end, but Cerrato might be right. Maybe this is it. Stay tuned.

What next for Taylor?

Taylor and Owens should both retire and watch football. They are both washed up and quite frankly have been for awhile now. Time for the NFL to move on, get rid of old artifacts

What next for Taylor?

He is going to go to the only team that will tollerate him and that is the Oakland Raiders because they need so much help everywhere and actually this is an upgrade to what they have right now.

I dont even think you are going to have to give that much.......first, cutler is good but hasn't WON yet...second, if cutler wants out...that hurts his trade value so much...third...cassel AND vrable just went for a second round pick.....yes cutler is better than cassel, but when you add in vrable then the comparisions are more equal...i think teh 22nd overall pick would be enough....throwing in sage would make it a definite deal, and you would probably do that anyways now that you would have minimal use for him.

you are mighty lame. Are you gonna pay for all these moves. time to save money and get some bang for the buck.  Hang on to Chester Taylor and what makes you think that Jay (crybaby) Cutler is going to magically change with a move to Minney-sota.

Sage would be a good verteran where the Broncos could draft a good QB to fit your new coaches Scheme, possibly Sanchez

Don't think you'll get Cutler that cheap from the Broncos.  AP in a straight trade for JC - I can see that.  Otherwise, you are just dreaming.

The Minnesota Vikings need to sign this guy!

I wish I was the general manager for the vikings: 2 things to do in the offseason right now while 22 million dollars plus under the cap:


1. Sign Jason Taylor

Think about this....Jason Taylor, Kevin Williams, Pat Williams, and Jared Allen. Possibly the best Defensive Line in NFL history.


2. Do what the Vikings did come draft time like they did last year when the Vikings signed Jared Allen and get Cutler:

Now that there is some big Drama in the Mile High City it's time to trade for Cutler.  In the Vikings spot at #22  they likely won't get someone of Value like Cutler would be. The Vikings need to trade Sage Rosenfels, first round pick, and Chester Taylor for Cutler. Especially since the broncos weren't able to get Arrington. Once the deal goes through then the Vikings need to sign either Deuce McCallister or Benson as AP's backup.

or if that trade doesn't go through, then go get Vick. They could run the option all day long with Vick and AP and nobody could stop them.

What do you guys think?
