If that's the case I'd say he failed pretty miserably. Want to stay out of the spotlight?.....don't be the only player on the team to miss OTAs without an excuse and don't refuse to call your coach back. I can't help but think we wouldn't be talking about him so much if he had just shown up.

Re: We all knew it was coming...

And if we were talking, it would only be positive things. VERY stupid to think doing this would keep you out of the spotlight.

Re: We all knew it was coming...

Not even an issue. I would let him sit for the rest of his carreer before I redid that contract.

Re: We all knew it was coming...

I would like to see them restructure the current contract so that it is about what the other guys who held out longer than he did got. He did sign in time to get into camp. If that worked against him, fix it. I'm not suggesting a major fix or a totally reworked contract, just an adjustment to reward him for his play and making sure he got to camp last year in time to learn the defense and make an impact.

Monk. The judge in the case said it was obvious Taylor wasn't drunk and threw out charges. Why in the hell do we hold this over his head. He was proven innocent.

Good post GoSkins - curious what people would have said had he held out for a deal to get what he was worth.

If he was so innocent why did he refuse a breathalyzer test.....maybe he wouldn't have had to go to court for the judge to throw it out.............

Re: We all knew it was coming...

Maybe that's what the tell the rookies to do at the synopsis. We've gone over this a million times. This is the type of shit they teach them there, and he musta made that day!

I'm guessing you meant symposium, not synopsis. And didn't Taylor skip that to move out of his apartment in Miami or something like that?

Yeah, that's what I mean!

I believe it's a 3 day affair and he missed a single day of it. His dad's a cop, so I'm sure that doesn't hurt either.
