Mike Tannenbaum anticipates a decision from free agent Jason Taylor before the Draft in this free agency never ending story.
The timing of that stance could be pushing Taylor toward the Jets. Tannenbaum told reporters huddled for a pre-draft news conference Thursday that he expects to have the Taylor situation resolved "one way or the other" before the draft, but he didn’t specifically give Taylor a deadline.
"I’m not a big deadline person, although when I proposed, I [told] him I needed an answer pretty quick," Tannenbaum said, jokingly.
As irritating as this pursuit has been, the Jets really don't need a decision until the Draft to solidify their strategy. If Taylor can't decide after over two weeks of consideration, it's obvious he doesn't want to be on the team.
