Plus, I can't see FT wanting to run behind the Cheatriots* O-Line (I use the term loosely). He would be hospitalized within a week.
Those would be some weapons to have, that is for sure.

KFFL Jaguars | Jones-Drew ready for a raise? Tue, 17 Feb 2009 06:33:15 -0800

Vito Stellino, of The Florida Times-Union, reports Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew will likely command a significant raise in salary now that he is the team's featured back with the release of RB Fred Taylor. Jones-Drew figures to receive a deal in the $8-million-a-year range with more than $20 million in guaranteed money, although the Jaguars might balk at topping the $18 million in guaranteed money they gave QB David Garrard. Jones-Drew's statistics, however, will give him a strong argument for a big contract.

There is ZERO chance the Steelers sign Taylor. How many more RB's do we need?

I still think we are looking to trade RB's for draft spots...

Never say never.....he's HONGRY!

Interesting...

Why should anyone in the NFL take a chance on you?

Well, there are three reasons why Taylor is a very good gamble -- and not even a significant gamble, because he's not going to cost much money -- for a contender who needs a back to carry the ball 200 times this fall:

1. Taylor hasn't gotten too beaten up over the second half of his career, so he should be able to be the kind of role-playing back a contender could use. Since turning 28 five years ago, he's been a part-time running back and he's averaged 210 carries a year over that span.

2. He also averaged 4.7 yards-per-carry over that five-year stretch.
3. Hunger. Taylor wants it bad.

"This change inspires me so much,'' he said from his Miami home late Monday. "I'm ready for it. It's like my first shot at free-agency. I expect to go somewhere and run till my wheels fall off.''

"Realistically, you anticipate it will come to this," Taylor said. "When you get past the 10-year mark, you can never be comfortable.

They asked me if I was interested in retiring. I said no.

Definitely no. I want to play in a Super Bowl so bad, and the Super Bowl's down here in Miami next year. I want to be in that game.

Two years ago, Plaxico [Burress], my child's godfather, won the Super Bowl. This year, my little cousin from Belle Glade [Fla.], Santonio Holmes, was the MVP in the biggest game in the world. My taste for that game is getting stronger and stronger. And honestly, I feel fresh. I get inspired by young guys and showing them what I can do. There are a lot of young guys I'm still quicker than. God gave me a lot when he was handing out ability. I still have a lot."

I'll be surprised if Indianapolis, New England and Pittsburgh do not at least sniff around Taylor. The Steelers have a very good insurance policy in Mewelde Moore behind Willie Parker and Rashard Mendenhall, but Mike Tomlin loves the running game, and he loves productive veterans.

and Parker was mentored by Taylor, so I would expect some lobbying from parker. I dont think Taylor is going to ask for money, just an opportunity to get a ring. Drop Davis and there you go.

If all parties agree then it sounds like a deal, but I don't think Tomlin "loves" the running game. I think he likes short passes out of the backfield as the running game.
