    Sporting News article on Travis Taylor

    This is a small cut from the NFL Off Season Blitz from the Sporting News.

    --------------------------------------------------

    WR Travis Taylor didn't receive the notoriety of some other free agent signings, but he might prove to be one of the team's shrewdest. During a recent minicamp, Taylor showed unexpected polish and technique and has a strong chance to be the team's No. 3 receiver. Taylor caught nearly everything thrown his way, mostly in the mid-range variety, and earned instant praise from QB Daunte Culpepper, who appreciated how he always found Taylor in the spot on the field that he was supposed to be in.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Thought that was interesting. Wasn't really that impressed with the free agent signing, but like the article implied, this could be something of a pleasant surprise.

    Good stuff! I think Taylor will fit in well as a number three guy. I think he will end up winning the #3 spot behind Williamson and Burleson. I see him as a more polished, more versatile reciever than Robinson or Campbell. I hope he works out well as another option for our great QB.

    I think Taylor is going to be the biggest surprise of the offseason; he will have a great, solid year!

    I agree. I think he may be a #2 by mid season.. unless Troy proves good.

    I expected Taylor to be a solid reciever for us. He just never had a decent qb throwing the ball to him. I think he'll have a atleast a few key plays for us in this coming season.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Im really excited for Taylor. He could've been great in Baltimore, if he had a good quarterback. I think he is going to be a huge suprise this year.

    Just like how Brandon Stokely shined with Indianapolis.. I strongly believe that Travis Taylor will come out successful for us as well. Both recievers were in Baltimore and now we see what Stokely can do with Manning throwing him the ball.. I just cant wait to see Travis Taylor's real talent since he will have Daunte throwing him the ball now.
