Meanwhile, Taylor was in Seattle for a free-agent visit that included dinner with defensive coordinator Ray Rhodes (the Philadelphia Eagles drafted Taylor when Rhodes was head coach in 1995).
Veteran safety Brock Marion was scheduled for a visit today.
If signed, Taylor and Marion would essentially replace cornerback Shawn Springs and safety Reggie Tongue. Springs signed with the Washington Redskins last week, while Tongue's return to Seattle is in doubt.
Taylor, 30, is a player the Eagles are not pursuing aggressively. He missed nine games to injury last season after starting 58 in a row since 2000.
Marion represented Miami in the most recent Pro Bowl. He turns 34 in June but has missed only one game in the past seven seasons. Marion has 18 interceptions and 17 pass breakups since 2000.
Randall Godfrey has decided to play at least one more year after reconsidering his future during a tough 2003 season.
Godfrey, who turns 31 next month, was a valuable addition to the Seahawks last season. But injuries prevented the veteran middle linebacker from playing his best for much of the year.
While Seattle is seeking reinforcements at the position, Godfrey is arguably the top free agent in a thin market.
If Godfrey re-signs with Seattle, it will be after he tests the market, starting with a trip to the San Diego Chargers this week. ...
The Seahawks also welcomed another free agent to town Monday, although cornerback Bobby Taylor did not sign a contract. Taylor, 30, took a physical and went to dinner with defensive coordinator Ray Rhodes before spending the night in Seattle. He and his agent, Jason Medlock, are expected to meet with team officials again today.
``It's a chance to play for a legitimate contender and be reunited with Ray Rhodes,'' Medlock said, referring to the fact that Rhodes coached Taylor for four seasons in Philadelphia. ``And it's a chance to play for a team that has the ability to pay him.'' ....Medlock said Taylor passed a physical with the Seahawks on Monday, opening the door for contract negotiations to possibly begin today......
Seattle is awaiting word from defensive lineman Marcellus Wiley, who visited last week and is considering moving from end to tackle. Wiley has several other visits tentatively scheduled for this week.
