Jason Taylor to the Redskins?

Listen, I'm not one of these people who thinks Jason Taylor is the best defensive lineman of all time...what? Nobody thinks that? People just think he's among the best of our time, a class act, and a guy who can be a solid producer this year? Oh, yeah, I'm one of those people.

It looks like the Skins may be interested, and somehow, defying all logic, they've actually got plenty of cap space to pick him up. That's the nice thing about the NFL (which is decidedly different from how the NBA works): spend a year and a half cleaning things up and any team can get into a favorable salary cap situation.

Anyways, being a Skins fan, and acknowledging that they've done very little to improve their defense this offseason, I'd be happy to see Jason Taylor join up for his swan song. Say what you will about Washington fans, the one thing they'll do as well as any other fans is embrace a new player. Hell, most Redskins fans were excited about what Mark Brunell could do with the team. I, being of sound mind and judgment, knew better, but it was nice, as it always is, to see the fans of my favorite team rally around each player. Not like Chicago, where Rex Grossman (deservedly) gets booed, or Philly, where everyone gets booed (deservedly or not).

Hopefully this'll be a quick process and we can start enjoying the brief Jason Taylor era at defensive end.

On paper, I should love this movie. I enjoy a good crime/heist/gangster movie as much as anybody. Goodfellas, The Untouchables, Ocean's ...
