I spoke with Courtney Taylor some after practice, and he said the Denver Broncos were hot and heavy to sign him, and a few other teams called his agent as well. However, he said, everybody wanted to sign him to their practice squad, and he figured if he was going to make a lateral move, he might as well stay in Seattle, where he is comfortable and where he feels he has a future.
He said the biggest thing about his game is that he needs to get back his swagger. He said he knows he is good enough to compete at this level, but for whatever reason he did not perform well when he was given the chance. It is humbling, for sure, and he realizes you can’t take anything for granted.
It was interesting, as I was interviewing coach Mike Holmgren came over and gave him a quick handshake and a pat on the back, as if to say, No hard feelings. Taylor said he realizes this is a business, and only a business, and he understands that and understands there is no reason to be bitter.
