I just think there are too many question marks surrounding taylor. Like you said, his age is a big issue for me. Also the steelers traditionally make pretty much anyone in the secondary look better than they are due to their great pass rush and disguises. The steelers have no other corners, polamalu isn't the best in coverage, clark is getting up there in years, and yet they don't seem to be looking to resign taylor. That raises more questions in my mind. Maybe Taylor is all that, but I wouldn't sign him just because I have too many questions about him.

Rumor around here from my Lions fan friends is that Carlos Rogers is going to Detroit.

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

Rogers would excel in Jim Schwartz' scheme. The Lions apparently are going to leverage the number of starting caliber corners who are UFAs and will not pay Nnamdi to do a job that Jonathon Joseph or Carlos Rogers could do cheaper.

I kind of think Joseph is going to be the overpaid player amongst corners. He's the youngest one of the group, but I feel like his struggles in Cincinnati are being overshadowed by the success he enjoyed in 2009 now that anyone can buy his services. This isn't an uncommon phenomenon.

Taylor has oven-mitts on his hands as well. But no one is quite like Carlos in that respect.
