Seahawks sign Taylor

The Seattle Seahawks have signed former Philadelphia Eagle Bobby Taylor to a four year deal worth $11.3 million, with a $3 million signing bonus. The contract could become $16.8 million over four years, based on incentives, including one that would pay Taylor more than $1 million in a season for leading the team in interceptions.

 

The 6-foot-3, 216 pound nine year veteran brings a reputation of being a tall cornerback with excellent man-to-man coverage.

Taylor's signing with the Seahawks reunites him with Defensive Coach Ray Rhodes who drafted Taylor in 1995 in the second round from Notre Dame when Rhodes was the Eagles Head Coach.

Taylor missed nine games with a foot injury last season, but played in Philadelphia's two playoff games. He finished with 28 tackles and one interception. Taylor's best season was in 2002 when he had five interceptions, 49 tackles and earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl.
