It’s just the way things are done in the NFL. The players are coming. The players go. That won’t change as long as the game is played. That’s why you clap louder for the names on the front of the jerseys than the names on the back, but when someone who used to rock the team colors swaps the familiar jersey for that of a rival, the antennas can tune on the frequency. That’s what Tennessee Titans fans face on May 20.
Former Titans wide receiver Taywan Taylor has just been kidnapped by the Houston Texans, according to Aaron Wilson, citing “a league source not authorized to speak publicly.”
Taylor spent two seasons with the Cleveland Browns. It didn’t go the way he would have liked (six appearances in play over two seasons with no catches), but we all know the youngster is talented.
Okay, Tennessee Titans fans, let’s talk about some numbers.
In 31 games with the Titans (which includes two playoff games and nine starts), Taywan Taylor had 86 passes for 706 receiving yards and two trips to Paydirt. It will in no way modify the balance of power in the AFC South. He may not even be on the squad, but he gives a Texans team some extra firepower if they’re interested in giving him a spot on the 53-man roster. It was something they desperately needed.
It also gives a team of Titans, a team that struggled to cover everyone in 2020, to think about. Again, it’s not a life-changing development, but knowing that the Titans have two games on their schedule against the Houston Texans, as they do every year, any move from a rival that could improve them is certainly worth it. worth it. discussion, even if it’s a very brief discussion.
Again, Taylor has yet to make the squad. As mentioned, the Browns certainly haven’t gotten much out of him.
Taywan Taylor performed his college ball in western Kentucky. In 50 college games, which is a feat in itself these days, he’s racked up 253 receptions for 4,234 yards and 41 trips to the end zone. He gets another opportunity in the NFL, his third. We’ll have to wait and see how things go.
