Skins eyeing another Taylor?

Len Pasquarelli reports the Skins are clearing cap room to sign Bobby Taylor to bolster their secondary. Your thoughts?

"The Bengals immediately turned their attention to Vincent's former teammate in Philly, veteran cornerback Bobby Taylor, but seemed to be making little headway in attempting to fill its need at the position. In fact, league sources indicated that Taylor is suddenly being wooed by the Washington Redskins, who were scrambling Monday to create cap room."

How will they clear room for him??? If they do, I think it will be close to a miracle!..lol

If true about possible signing B. Taylor, there would have to be some cuts. Larry Moore, Trung Canidate, maybe J. Trotter.

Rumor has it they have $3M left under the cap, because of not being able to sign Rams CB. However draft picks will require some cap space as well.

By cutting Larry Moore (now expendable since the signing of Cory Raymer and the re-signing of Lennie Friedman), and possibly Trung Canidate and Byron Chamberlain, the Skins could clear nearly $3 million on this year's cap. I'm sure the Skins could figure out a way to tweak Taylor's contract numbers so that they could fit him in.

Of course, they could free up a ton of money if Chris Samuels would go ahead and agree to restructure his ridiculous contract numbers...

Re: Samules
Earlier rumors were that the new contract for Portis was a friendly gesture by the Skins to entice Portis and Samuels agent (both have same agent) to renegotiate Samuels contract.
Because the Skins have no leverage to get Samuels to renegotiate.

I think we are back to having 2 picks since the deal didn't go through for Butler.

Yeah, redskin. I just expect us to still give up that 5th somewhere.

Our saftey's are still pretty weak. Drafting Sean Taylor would help.

Joe Bugel loves Samuels too much to let him go and if he is stubborn about it, there is no way Gibbs will let him go. Besides, I don't see us getting rid of a very good LT (those are almost as hard to come by as CBs).

I hate this move for the following reasons:

1. What about building our dline?

2. Taylor is a very good CB. True, but Taylor is getting long in the tooth and he is going to want more money than he is worth. Our secondary is in decent shape. Bauman is a solid zone coverage nickelback (he seems to have a pretty good nose for the ball) and though Springs and Smoot would make a good duo.

3. What about our dline?

4. Springs has a history of injuries and what if he goes down? True, but there is this thing called the salary cap and it doesn't like moves such as this. The fact is that Smoot's contract expires next season, we paid Springs a starter's salary with a starter's bonus, and you simply cannot afford to pay three corners starting salaries. We've already got Springs, we need to re-sign Smoot, and so I don't understand the desire to acquire Taylor.

5. What about our dline?

6. Well since we're already headed to cap hell, why not pile sh-t on top of sh-t by signing Taylor, thereby increasing our chances of winning the big one? That's about the only somewhat reasonable logic I can think of for this potential signing.
