    We lost Smith, So lets get Taylor.

    As reported in another thread, the packers are trying tot rade for Jayson taylor. I don't see a reason we can't swoop in and
    try to snatch him from the packs. Or picks are worth more and we have a better defense. I doubt MIA cares who in the NFC he goes to....

    What do you guys think?

    A second and a 5th.
    The packers
    2nd is worth a lot less than our 2nd.

    I wouldn't mind having Taylor but age 33 how much are you willing to give up?

    I don't think giving a second round pick for someone thats 33 is a good idea.

    And why would the packers want to trade for him they have two legit DE's?

    I think it would be a good move, as long as we don't give up more than a 3rd. He still has 2-3 years left in him, and hopefully by then Udeze should be healthy again and could take over when over again when Taylor retires. There is no question to that adding Taylor would instantly make our defense a lot better, if only for a few years.

    He would also allow Ej to get healthy.
    I think it's worth it. Our pass rush issues would be solved and his leadership to the defense will propell us to a top5 defense easily.
    Would you rather having to deal with him for the next 2 -3 years?

    Sometimes you can't put a price such as a draft pick on a trade when you analyze it.
    Taylor is a great DE which the Vikings need pretty badly right now.
    Taylor could be the last missing piece to the defense right now.
    IMO Taylor's play, leadership, and intelligence far outweigh a 2nd round draft pick that has never taken a snap in the NFL.
