Bucs Might Pursue Released DE Jason Taylor

Tampa Bay is in need of a pass rusher and the Bucs might finally have an opportunity to snag one.
The Washington Redskins just released DE Jason Taylor only a few days after signing DE Albert Haynesworth. This is something that doesn’t come as a surprise considering Taylor’s salary, age and tendency to get injured.
However, this might end up being great news for Buc fans.
We’ve been hearing from several sources since last week that this move was going to occur, and that once it did, Tampa Bay was going to heavily pursue Taylor. We hear so many rumors that we were hesitant to report it, but there might be something to it now.
It makes 100 percent sense because newly hired defensive coordinator Jim Bates coached Taylor in Miami and loves him. Tampa Bay also needs a great pass rusher who can mold Gaines Adams and Taylor would be the perfect fit.
Buc fans have been wanting a big free agent signing.
Now we’ll have to see if Taylor is big enough for Tampa Bay to pursue.
