Vonnie Holliday, Jason Taylor, Dom Capers reunion?

by

OK, I have no evidence for this – haven’t even read any rumors anywhere. Once again, I’m starting rumors. But Vonnie Holliday was just released by the Dolphins in a cap room move. Jason Taylor was also just released by the Skins. Let’s just pick them both up. Let’s not make sort-of offers and come up just short again. Let’s just call them up, sign them and have them both in GB tomorrow. A Capers-Taylor-Holliday reunion.

Just did some rather geekish reading to learn that a couple years ago, when Holliday was facing unrestricted free agency in Miami, it was Capers who was instrumental in bringing him back (not sure if he enticed with piano or guitar). Capers likes him, many a Packer fan still feels badly re how Holliday departed Green Bay and importantly, he is exactly the kind of character/football guy MM and TT like so much. To me, he’d be a great addition because he has valuable experience in Capers’ 3-4, would line up as a DE, and because he has been a captain recently – he is a defensive and locker room leader.

Throw Taylor in there for the hell of it and see what happens. Why not? Despite their age, I can say with certainty, having both would improve our defense instantly (and at least Holliday would come cheap).

    Jason Taylor wants to dance, he’ll stay in a big market. Honestly, I don’t want this guy in Green Bay.

    i’m really hoping we bring in holliday. taylor would be great too, but i’d never get my hopes up thompson running the show – that’s not necessarily a knock on tt. i just don’t think it happens.

    i do think, however, that if he lets holliday go, he’s made a mistake worthy of even idiot-fan criticism. he’ll be cheap, he’ll be effective, he’ll be a leader and a quality guy. get it done now, adams can wait.

    Abolutely no downside to bringing in either or both. They would add to the quality of the front seven rotation immediately. They would be rotational players and used for specific situations. They certainly have more potential than a fat sissy (Harrell), and inexperienced to small for DE and too slow for LB (Thompson), and a nobody (Malone).

    Without DLine and Lb help any injury will create a hole that the current roster will not be able to fill. (See 2008) Wake up TT!

    I’m really worrired aobubt TT. Appears his ego is much bigger than his desire to do what it takes for the Packers to be a contender NOW. He’s jsut got to do SOMETHING in the FA market and these two seem to be a great fit and could be picked up for a hell of a lot less than a Hayjnesworth or Peppers. COME ON TT

    Jim Leonhard signed with the Jets…I was hoping we’d bring the ‘Sconi back home…

    Jim Leonhard – a typical TT waiting for the fire sale and once again lossing quality in favor of cheap. Today GB has Mike Adams (Clev) SS in for talks.

  7. Green Bay Packers Fan Apparel Says:

    Too bad I was looking forward to Leonhard as well. I guess we’ll have to wait a bit to see.
