    A picture of the 90s (80s?) pop star Taylor Dayne. I hadn't thought of her name in a long time until I saw you refer to the "Taylor/Dayne" combo.

    Min: Chester Taylor | RB




    I doubt he'll keep on wanting to split time with AD

    Wasn't that big of a deal, and the Texans will actually save money by cutting him instead of keeping him on the roster.

    Check out what Jonathan Stewart did against S. Florida in the Sun Bowl:

    J. Stewart 23 253 11.0 1 71

    This guy is the real deal.

    Torn ACL on the first or 2nd day of training camp. He should be ready to go by the time OTA's start. He's going to have to beat out Darius Walker for a roster spot. I know Kubiak loved him in 2006 and he could have played a lot in 2007 had he not gotten hurt.

    As far as the FA's go, I love Fred Taylor, but at 32, you have to say no. Yes, Barber would be fantastic, but no chance in hell the cowboys let him go, especially to the Texans. I like the idea of trading for Chester Taylor if Minny doesn't want too much. Michael Turner is going to be pretty expensive. I think he'll be good, but may cost too much for the Texans liking.

    Might have to wait another year. I remember reading that he is staying at Arkansas for another year.

    i guess that gives him a chance to truly be the featured back, once mcfadden leaves.

    With McFadden off to the NFL, I think it would behoove him to stay another year at Arkansas. At least then he can increase his draft potential.... I dunno though.

    Asomugha is ridiculous. They only threw on him 12 times all season. The Raiders will almost assuredly cut Sapp if he doesn't retire to free up space to resign him.

    He's already a first round pick, I think he'll come out.

    The Burner would be nice. He's entering what is considered to be the prime of a RB yet he has less wear and tear as a 4 or 5 year vet. However, w/ Ahman under contract and Taylor coming back from injury...I doubt the Texans go with a FA.

    His stock may have rose too high for us after the Sun Bowl. Besides, I think we have to go OL or trade down and grab two seconds or a second and an additional third pick. Yeah, Stew looks like a freak show in the making. 5-10 230# 4.45 in 40 speed. Damn and S Fla wasn't small potatoes this year (they were legit) !

    Ahman will be cut and Taylor will be fighting with Walker to make the last running back spot. I'm still confused what the fascination with Taylor is. He played in one game last year against one of the worst defenses in the league.

    Are you guys serious?

    He didn't earn the nickname "Fragile" Fred Taylor for nothing.....

    Just what we need - another old, beat up running back. :rolleyes:

    I want young blood.....
