Sean Taylor Concerns

From today's Washington Post:
Safety Sean Taylor left the mandatory four-day rookie symposium, held from June 27 to June 30 in San Diego, after one day, apparently because of a personal matter. According to a source, Taylor had told the Redskins that he needed to return to Miami to clear out his apartment before getting evicted.

Taylor, the No. 5 overall pick who hasn't yet officially picked an agent, was instructed to return by the league for the final two days.


Is anyone else getting a little concerned about Taylor? He seems to be surrounded by bizarre circumstances.. Firing his agent a couple days after the draft and still hasn't picked one, allegedly missing some OTAs, now this.. I don't know about you, but stuff like this makes me nervous.. On the field he was all the rage from what I've heard and read, but just makes me wonder where his head is or who he is entrusting to help him with decisions..

If he had legitimate reasons to leave and the team was OK with that then No, I don't have a problem.

Yeah it does seem he's been involved in some strange happenings so far, but I'd be much more concerned if he was out getting arrrested in a bar fight or something like that.

I hadn't heard about him missing some OTA's, other than when he got the shaving cream pie in the face, where did you hear that?

It's gotta be quite a transition to the pros for a rookie. You'd think more would be made of these 'happenings' if they were truly detrimental to the team or to his development as a player. I'm sure the team is keeping a close eye on all their rookies to help with the transition.

I'm not going to get worried until I start hearing the team is worried or until I see his mugshot on the news. Guy seems to be too much of a stand-up player for that.

yeah, but no agent, leaving to clear out an apartment (couldn't he have done this, like... two weeks ago?)...

his priorities/time management just seem a bit off for a top 5 pick.

He's a rookie without a signed contract and without an agent. So he's got to handle stuff on his own, give him a break he's young and these kind of mistakes aren't indicative of anything but his youth.

This just goes to show you how helpless a lot of these guys are. They're agents do just about everything for them and allow them to concentrate on football. Once he signs these little hiccups should disappear, unless he feels cheated out of a 6.5 million dollar roster bonus or something.

considering we don't know all the details it's not really fair of us to judge his situation, don't ya think?

I was listening to ESPN Radio (mistake #1, I know ) after minicamps and Clayton and Salisbury were talking about the Skins and they were saying that Arrington and Taylor were who Gibbs was referring to when he said something like, 'There were a couple more abscences than we would have liked'.. I am not down on the kid at all, just weird things like the agent deal and the timing of the apartment just struck me as odd.. I guess though without an agent he's not getting any money at all since agents usually front their clients cash until their contract kicks in so that may have something to do with the apartment eviction.. Ah well, maybe everyone (myself included) is just ready for the hitting to begin!

Deciding to fire his agent is not bizarre in any way. Regardless of when it happened. Missing out on the rest of the meetings because of the eviction is not great, but it is not the end of the world. You must remember he is a 21 Y.O. college student. It's what happens to college students that do not have a ton of money. Non-issue.

I'm not really worried. It's not like he's getting busted for speeding, pot, and sex with 15-year old girls

yeah, he isnt violating the law, no legal trouble or anything, but he does need to try and get his things sorted out soon with the agent.
