I was wondering how Taylor would react when I heard how much some of the guys drafted after him received (Rothlisberger received more for less years today too).

WTF??? Ok, I'm afraid now, I'm seriously concerned that this kid is a little confused. I'm sitting here, with my mouth open wondering "WTF?" over and over again. Rosenhaus must be pissed, seeing as he missed out on a percentage of that contract. If this guy starts growing dreadlocks and wearing his helmet during interviews, I'm off the Sean Taylor bandwagon.

All of those "huge" contracts are incentive laden deals. Even Eli Manning's contract is only really worth $45 mil without the incentives. How is Taylor's deal structured?

Somehow this doesn't surprise me. I was just talking about this yesterday with Matt, after I had a conversation with one prominent Redskins player who strongly criticized (to put it mildly!) the deal that Mato and Moorad negotiated for Taylor. I had a feeling this move was imminent, considering that another player would be so adamant about his opinion of the deal, which leads me to believe that it has been a topic of locker room conversation, and perhaps a source of embarrassment for Taylor.

he had long hair and dreadlocks in college.

This is starting to get crazy at this point. And it does make me worry. Can a player get a contract and then hold out a week later for more money!?!?!? Im not sure what arguments are going to come from this, no sense saying we should have picked Winslow because he wont sign for a while.

The deals that have been signed this year are crazy. I knew there was a lot of big names coming out this year but damn, these are some huge deals.

When you look at the contract he signed, it's easy to see who got the best end of the deal. Especially when you consider his spot in the draft and all the hype surrounding him. He could have, and probably should have, received alot more.

Snyder takes care of his players. At this point he just needs to play and show everyone that he can be a star. Once hes a star then he can talk again.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. He has a contract that was negotiated in good faith-- regardless of its value in relation to the contracts recently signed by other top draft picks-- and a reneg holdout (which is what I assume most folks are concerned about) would be an extremely bad move on his part at this point, both in terms of his progression as a player, and his relationship with the team and the fans.

Taylor's performance in camp thus far has been unspectacular, and just to underscore that fact, Andre Lott is ahead of him on the depth chart. While Taylor may be very upset by the deal that was negotiated for him, it wouldn't make any sense for him to pull himself out of camp, especially when it appears he has so much work to do to get to where he should be.

I think the most important thing for Taylor to do right now is to quickly hire another agent, probably Rosenhaus, and stay focused on football. It also wouldn't hurt if the media would get off his back-- but it would help if he would open up and let the world know what's going on inside his head. He's simply increasing the pressure on himself, as well as the media's scutiny and curiosity, by making these decisions without explanation or clarification.

Hey Joe, why do you think Taylor has struggled thus far in camp? Is he out of shape or is he just adjusting to the speed and complexity of the pro game?

Tough weekend for Eugene Mato. His one other client, Plaxico Burress, fired him as well. What does that say about Mato?
