Pastabelly's Tip Sheet on Taylor, 'Skins, Free Agent Safeties

Washington Redskins officials have been openly supportive of second-year free safety Sean Taylor, who faces two felony counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and a misdemeanor count of battery, and who will be arraigned on June 24. But here's something notable: Team personnel officials this week began checking out free safeties, making calls and doing research on players still in the free agent pool, those who might be cut before camp, and those who could be available in trades. Maybe it's just coincidence, perhaps a case of the Redskins simply interested in bolstering the position, or just conducting due diligence. Then again, Washington could be preparing for the possibility of not having Taylor available. It would be difficult for the Redskins to release Taylor, given the salary cap ramifications of such a move, but his contract does include default language that might allow the club to recoup some of his bonus money in the event he is convicted. By the way, the top safeties still available in free agency include Lance Schulters, Tony Dixon, Cory Bird, Reggie Tongue, Eric Brown and Anthony Floyd.

Why not shop around? Nobody knows if the Sean "The Fool" Taylor will get any playing time next year.

Man, I never even heard of these guys. Tony Dixon sounds familiar. But it sure looks like a step down.

schulters and tongue are pretty good safeties who would excel in gw's system but they do not have the speed, size and ball-hawking skills of sean taylor. I hope that this does blow over and we will have st instead of them.

too bad hall retired and mcquarters signed elsewhere... those two were starting quality players being used for depth.

The Skins have to be ready to move on with or without Taylor.
