Jason Taylor is a Redskin

[Note by Skin Patrol, 07/21/08 7:48 AM EDT ] Let this be the Training Camp open thread of the day, as I'll be in mediation until this evening, most likely.

Poor timing as I don't really have time to comment, but per Redskins Insider:

Vinny Cerrato just announced the Skins acquired Pro Bowl DE Jason Taylor from Miami for a second round pick in 2009 and a sixth-round pick in 2010.

The Skins assume the final two years of Taylor's contract as is, Cerrato said, with no re-negotiation (Washington had about $8 million in cap space prior to the trade, Cerrato said). Taylor has talked about playing just one more season before leaving the NFL for acting/Hollywood options, but Cerrato, Washington's executive VP of football operations, said, "I'm 100 percent confident he'll play more than one year.".

Is it or isn't it overspending? Much of that will depend on how Jason Taylor plays this coming season, but if this story is true I welcome him to the team with open arms given the great need we have on the defensive line after the Daniels injury.

More tomorrow.
