Busy Monday In NFL Free Agency: Skins Cut Taylor, Ward Signs With Bucs

Making top news today was T.J. Houshmandzadeh signing with the Seattle Seahawks, a move that didn’t surprise too many. But there were a couple other moves made on this busy Monday that deserve a little buzz.

The Tampa Buccaneers continued to stay active in the market when they signed former-Giant, Derrick Ward, to a multi-year deal. Ward rushed for just over 1,000 yards last season and decided to test the free-agent market instead of return to the Giants’ crowded backfield. Tampa Bay released veteran running back Warrick Dunn last week but Ward will still compete against the oft-injured Cadillac Williams and fantasy-stud Ernest Graham.

And rounding out the day, the Redskins cut All-Pro defensive end Jason Taylor. As a Redskins loyalist, I would have personally liked to have seen Jason Taylor have one full injury-free season, especially with Haynesworth in the middle, but it wasn’t meant to be. Taylor was set to make too much money next season and he just couldn’t get it done in his first year (a.k.a ‘his audition’). The bottom line is that he didn’t want to play football. Taylor was released by the team because he refused to partake in the team’s offseason workouts. Taylor’s agent told reporters that he was seperated from his family for basically a whole year and said that Taylor just wanted to be with his kids. You can’t get on the guy for wanting to be with his family but obviously he is no longer committed to playing football. He will probably be picked up pretty quick but I don’t think it will be by a team near his home in Florida – as he would like.

Instead of going to another team, Taylor should just retire to be with his family for a while and then fire up the acting career.
