Dont do anything with him...yet. Wait for the dust to clear in JAX and see what the actual situation is. Who knows henry might not even be traded. I also cannot just see Fred Taylor giving up the starting job unless hes not healthy. I would defintely keep him around until the situation pans out.

I have heard that Taylor's knee is much worse than the Jags let on. He may miss the year. Don't do anything until you hear something concrete.

You got him for a pretty good value. As a 4th RB he's not bad. Just wiat and see what happens. Your 1-3 backs are very solid.

My 2 cents?

Fred Taylor couldn't play a complete season when he was a young man.
Which he's not anymore.
It's the constant and forever injury bug.
Not worth the aggravation.

IMO - you could do a lot better than the Redskin D.

Look to trade Taylor to a believer for a better defense.
And pick up a 4th back elsewhere.

Well. No disrespect to Terpfan. But I'd have to ask:
How many points did the Redskin "D" get for you last year?

I agree with the wease. I have never had Taylor on one of my teams because of his injury problems. I just leave him alone so someone else can have the headache. It wont be very long before JAX grabs Henry. They need a solid back that they don't have to worry about going down for and extended amount of time with an injury. Taylor is a bust, a big one at that. Get rid of him.
