Default Broncos Interested in Jason Taylor

Jason Taylor-DL - Redskins Mar. 2 - 11:08 pm et

Free agent Jason Taylor has already been contacted by "roughly a dozen teams," according to Profootballtalk.com.
The Packers, Bucs, Broncos, 49ers, Browns, and possibly the Eagles and Patriots could be in play. Taylor only had 3.5 sacks in an injury-ruined 2008 season, but recorded 11 the year prior and will have no shortage of suitors.

I'd rather have Vonnie Holliday.

League minimum. See if he makes it out of training camp. Nothing but performances clauses.

Unfortunately, this is just the kind of player Bellychuck used to always go after.

Problem is, those players would often work out and be useful for a year or two..... That's how they roll....

I wouldn't want him. He'll be expensive and his dedication is questionable.

Pass, let him keep dancing with the stars.

if we want an edge guy...i'm thinking McD talks with the Giants about Justin Tuck...

they have a need at receiving TE (Scheff)...and an abundnace of d-linemen...maybe we give Scheff and a pick for Tuck?...

one can hope....

i say go for him at a minimal contract with incentives. if he reaches them - then he has proven himself for it. if not we have nothing to lose here. compared to last years defense. he cant hurt

you joke but it's already been rumored the giants have a logjam at D-line after the acquisitions of Canty & Benard...and are shopping

if you look they have Osi, Kiwi, Tuck, Cofield, Robbins, Bernard, and Canty...all starting calibur...ntm Alford and Tolefson...


rumors have gone earlier about the giants wanting a receiving target since trading Shockey (Boss didn't cut it)...

clearly i'm just speculating but it's not as "maddenesk" as you may think...

the Broncos need to make a move for front 7 help because the FA field is all dried up...

i wouldnt be surprised to see McD make a run at Tuck , Shaun Rogers, or even dare i say Peppers?....

who knows...but it'll be fun watching this play out...

Can you imagine the intensity in the locker room with Ray Lewis and X-Factor? I can't imagine what the two of them would be like together? It's like having The Wolverine and Optimus Prime on the same side of the ball? It would be sick.....

go back and look on rotoworld, broncos were interested earlier in FA. think they caught wind of how much cash he wants and backed out.

Why would they sign 2 FA's and then ship out Tuck who is one of the best DE's playing?

like i said i'm just completely speculating...

but to answer your question....i don't know, but with that said, i've already read that Canty and Tuck play similar roles and Canty is expected to take snaps away from Tuck...

why have THAT many d-lineman?...it just seems to me they will move one and try and get value for him...not to mention signing Canty helped them AND hurt their division rival...

Giants may trade a dlineman, they have 10 on roster, but it won't be Tuck. Also it would take more then an injury prone TE to get it done IMO.

Add this Scheff trade to the supposed Cutler trade on Dreamland.
