Defensive back James Taylor, who signed a contract with the Jets a few days ago, recently worked out for the Indianapolis Colts as well. Taylor missed a couple of games with the Ohio Valley Greyhounds of the United Indoor Football Association to work out for the two NFL clubs. He saw action in all eight of their games this season.
A converted wide receiver, the 6'0, 205-pound Taylor was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Packers in 2004, but was waived before the end of training camp. After joining the Greyhounds, he spent time at both cornerback and safety this season. He also returned kickoffs.
Taylor spent only one season at Georgetown after starting his collegiate career at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. During the year at Georgetown, he saw action at safety, cornerback, wide receiver and wingback, impressing pro scouts with his versatility and athleticism.
