Roster Moves: Vikings Sign A Shirtless Taylor Mays

The Minnesota Vikings continued their slow burn through free agency last week by making a couple of small peanut signings. Small in dollar amount and likely impact, but BIG in shirtlessness! We’ll be breaking those down this week and slowly but surely getting prepped for the 2015 NFL Draft. That’s still coming up, right? WE DID WHO? Taylor Mays is a 26 year old safety that went...

What should the Vikings do about the Taylor Mays and Casey Matthews offer?

Grading the Vikings Signing of Taylor Mays

Based off the headline alone I would give this signing an “A” simply because Mays was one of my favorite safeties coming out of college in 2010. Unfortunately he hasn’t proven to be much more than a role player on special teams and a depth at both linebacker and safety. During his NFL career between the 49ers and Bengals Mays has yet to get an INT and has not broken 100 tackles...

Bengals Injury Update: Taylor Mays speaks on shoulder injury and return to football

The Cincinnati Bengals were serious playoff contenders in 2013, yet fell early in the beginning stages of the Super Bowl XLVIII quest.  Having holes in their roster due to injuries didn't help, but perhaps one of the biggest gap that Cincinnati missed was safety-turned-linebacker Taylor Mays.  Mays suffered a dislocated shoulder and torn labrum in an October 27th game versus the...

Cincinnati Bengals re-sign S Taylor Mays

Late Tuesday evening the Cincinnati Bengals announced, they’ve reached an agreement with safety Taylor Mays. Though the details of the contract are unclear at the moment, this move falls right in line with everything Cincinnati has done this off-season.
