[Note by River City Rage, 02/16/09 2:05 PM EST ] Michael Wright reports that Fred Taylor offered to take a paycut, but the team rejected:
"We offered to take a pay cut, but their decision was made," Taylor told Wright. "They wanted to go young was their reply."
The Jacksonville Jaguars released running back Fred Taylor today. Fred was due for a 6 million dollar salary and could not come to an agreement about restructuring for the future. Fred Taylor is as close to an iconic player in Jaguars history and his absence puts a strange twist on the 2009 season.
I'll have more complete thoughts later, right now, I'm simply stunned.
