...because of the final eight rules as Cimini reminds us.
The only way to sign Taylor and QB Mark Brunell would be to lose another UFA, and it doesn't appear that DE Marques Douglas, LS James Dearth or LB Larry Izzo is close to signing anywhere. Douglas probably will land somewhere after the draft.
I'd still like to see Douglas back and certainly would prefer him to Brunell. A starting defensive lineman who is excellent against the run is more valuable than a backup quarterback whose best days were a decade ago.
