Will New England Be The Fountain Of Youth For Fred Taylor?

by: Brian Christopher


Rodney Harrison and Junior Seau drank Bill Belichick’s Ponce de Leon Kool-Aid.  Looks like Fred Taylor is next.  One of the more unheralded deals on the first day of free agency was the Patriots signing Fred Taylor to a two year deal.  The starting job for the Patriots is wide open between Fred Taylor, Laurence Maroney, Sammy Morris, Kevin Faulk, and Benjarvus Green-Ellis.

Fred Taylor joined Pete Prisco who hosts a show on WFXJ in Jacksonville.  Pete also covers the NFL for Taylor’s new contract, he should buy a new phone as his cell phone didn’t have great reception.

On when he finally agreed to the deal:

“It’s been tough trying to hold it in.  I agreed awhile ago, but everything had to pass through the league office.  You know me, this is my first time at it.  I’m not really understanding what I was supposed to do.  Feels good to be employed again in this economy.   I’ll get ready to pack my things man.”
