Taylor Not Interested in Packers

The hot Jason Taylor-to-Packers rumor we discussed earlier this week seems to be losing it's buzz. Sure, Jason Taylor would like to be traded, but he's looking big-time. Give him the Cowboys, Patriots, Eagles, Jaguars, Chargers, or nearly every other team in the league. But the Packers? He's not interested.

“I don’t see it happening,” a source close to Taylor said Friday.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel also reports that Green Bay might just be too small of a market for Taylor. “He’s been through that quarterback thing before,” the source said. “He doesn’t want to go through it again. Maybe if Favre was still there, but even that wouldn’t be a given.”

So Jason Taylor doesn't want to play for the Packers? If that's the case, let's leave it at that. Sure, he'd upgrade an already strong position for the Packers, but I don't want to trade for someone who doesn't want to be there. The Packers have a group of guys who love playing with each other, and love playing in Green Bay, so let's not ruin that by trading for someone who will think they are bigger than the team.

Yes, Jason, you would get no exposure playing in tiny Green Bay. It's not like the Packers have a prime-time date with the Cowboys or three games on ESPN including opening Monday night.

Perhaps he knows he just doesn't have what it takes to withstand the constant Reggie White comparisons that the Worldwide Leader would surely make.

Do we want this schmuck? I mean, DOES he really want to play? Look what happened with Tiki Barber his last year...DISASTER! Believe me, the Pack would be better off without ol' Twinkle-toes Taylor.
