The kid is 21 years old and he's staring a new phase of his life. Has he made mistakes already hell ya. But the only thing thats gonna matter is how he does in week 1 against the bucs. I think he'll then put all our nervousness to rest when he dominates. He was def. the right pick and history will prove it.

But will he be on the field week one?

If he doesn't get his act together very quickly I can't see Gibbs putting him in the lineup, especially if he has a lengthy holdout.

Vince Wilfork the DT with the New England Patriots, just became the second first round pick to sign. I would be optomistic and say this is about to be a string of first round signings, but who cares if we STILL DONT HAVE A AGENT!!

the pessimist in me is very worried about this whole thing, but I hope Taylor finally makes up his freaking mind and gets his head out of his ass.

I would hope the guy wants to play football. But what's the holdup? Or does the thought of getting 12 million to sign not motivation enough?

Off the wall question, is the amount of the signing bonus pre-tax or post-tax? Does he get a check for $12 million and Snyder pays the taxes or does he get $12 million minus taxes and the chunk that FICA takes out? Anybody know? Anybody even care?

I'm sure the player takes the tax hit and the '$12M' is before any applicable taxes.

Yes, thats what I would be worried about. Give him $12M and look at all the taxes he would have to pay. He might end up in the Poor House. All kidding aside this kid will get his act together and be in camp by the second week of camp.

Hopefully all this worry will make us all the more excited when he picks his agent and signs a contract (before training camp....)

At first I thought maybe he has picked an agent, but the paperwork just hasn't been filed yet, but then there would probably be at least some speculation of who it is....and maybe even something from the agent himself. But no, nothing...... What's up with this guy???
I'm still optimistic and think (hope) this will pass, and he will be in camp at least by a week or so into it....

Taylor Time

Sean Taylor is either having the most unfortunate lead up to a rookie season in league history and things will be fine once he gets on the field or else none of this bodes well at all. Firstly, who fires Drew Rosenhaus as an agent? He's a comlete pr***, but that's why he gets his players top dollar... all the time. That to me was the first real sign of trouble, though his Steve Francis draft day impression wasn't all that inspiring. Then he goes months without an agent at all and misses part of the mandatory Rookies meeting because he has to stave off eviction from his apartment in Florida. It takes a lot to get evicted and you'd think his landlord would be somewhat forgiving considering that he is just weeks away form being a multimillionaire. So was that a contrived story from him or is he really not that savvy in the real world? Either way, it's shady. Then apparently he and Lavar are off on the wrong foot after a semi-disclosed rookie prank-gone-wrong that involved shaving gel instead of shaving cream. Let's just hope that either his luck turns around or he gets his head on straight. I'll pull for him regardless as long as he's in Burgundy and Gold.
