Here is one of the five teams he can envision Taylor with:
Dallas –- Of all the potential landing spots, none is more intriguing than Dallas. It is a longshot, granted, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones never can be ruled out. The Cowboys have debated the merits of trading for Taylor and they already hold additional draft picks in 2009 -– Cleveland’s in the third round, Detroit’s in the fourth. Dallas could decide to package picks and/or a disgruntled player such as defensive end Greg Ellis or safety Roy Williams that former Cowboys coach Bill Parcells knows well. Dallas knows its loaded at defensive end now with Ellis, DeMarcus Ware and last year’s first-round pick, Anthony Spencer. But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones never bypasses big-name, talented players such as Taylor. He has thought about the possibility of Taylor in Dallas and, despite the long odds, could wind up taking action.
He also mentioned Philadelphia as a possible team that may be interested in Taylor. Schefter is out of his mind if he thinks the Dallas Cowboys would trade Greg Ellis or Roy Williams for an over-the-hill defensive end with young DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer on the team. A trade for Taylor involving any of those players is idiotic. Schefter “and his Dallas could” scenarios involve no common sense. Is there much of a difference with Ellis and Taylor at this stage of their careers? I certainly don’t think so.
That’s not to say the Cowboys may not try to get Taylor. I am just saying it won’t involve Ellis or Williams, and it shouldn’t. Let the Eagles get him so we can watch another big-name defensive end flop in Philly.
