I can find out where his apartment is, ive got Eric Wistroms number and a couple other guys on defense that would probably know. Then we can all get together this weekend and help the kid move. Problem solved.

No doubt!! I would have had some movers a.k.a freinds with pickups get there asses over to my crib and get my sh-t out. I am sure he could get a loan from any bank to keep him afloat untill he get's his 10 + million signing bonus!

If this is the worst trouble Sean Taylor ever gets into, the Skins will be very happy.

Here is the nagging itch in all of this. I have been a starving college student too. I never had to go to LA for a seminar as part of the process of getting my first job out of college so I could make millions of dollars, but I suspect that if I did I would have taken care of the "moving out" details prior to getting on the plane to LA. BTW, if he is being "evicted", where will he be living after the seminar? In a refrigerator box under a bridge? I don't think so. In fact, I don't think he is so destitute that he can't get someone to put whatever stuff he wants into storage for him.

Keep this in mind. Taylor - like just about every other kid drafted in the first two rounds of the draft - has been coddled and pampered because of his athletic skills since he was about 10 years old. He is probably used to having people do "stuff" for him. And Taylor's Wonderllic test scores do not inspire you to think that he had to choose between NFL Football and a career as a professor of philosophy. So, maybe he is having difficulty keeping priorities straight because that is a difficult thing for him to grasp.

Like I said, if this is the worst that happens to him, the Skins are in fat city. But if he has other problems making decisions and keeping his obligations straight...

Agreed, a whole lot of nothing. Without an agent to front him cash and no signed contract, he's probably living off of family right now.

Skinsncanes, when u do help him move please express to him the importance of de-cleating at least one Cowboy this season. Or scoring off a pick at the least.

Yeah, there is plenty here for us Redskin fans to be concerned about, but way to early to be making any kind of judgements at all. We are getting very small bits of info. No one even knows why he fired his agent. Generally, these kids in the first round have their act together much better than this, but they also always have an agent walking them through everything. It really seems like Taylor is doing some serious struggling here. I just hope it all works out for him and for the Redskins.

Taylor is fine, u guy's got to understand he doesn't have any money yet and I would leave to if my stuff was about to be put on the street. Until the contract is signed he is still a broke college student... every thing will work it selfout hell i feel his procrastination is good for the skins because they will have more of a bargining chip when negotiations starts which = better cap friendly contract

in the nba they assign assistants to the younger players (HS to NBA tpes mainly), too help them transition... help them with budgetting, grocery shopping, scheduling etc to make sure they're self supportive and have some understanding of how to not go broke etc...

do nfl teams provide that? or do players have to ask NFLPA/seek help on their own? Not saying taylor needs it (college teaches most of those life skills pretty well), but wondering how it works there... is this what the whole rookie symposium is about? how to deal with life in the nfl (and agreements the league has in place)?
