Bucs beat writer Rick Stroud says Mark Dominik wont sign Jason Taylor

Bucs beat writer Rick Stroud says Mark Dominik is adamant in his decison to go with youth and won't sign Jason Taylor despite the pleas of Jim Bates

Find yourself yearning for Jason Taylor to play opposite Gaines Adams on the Bucs defensive line?

Are the rumors exciting you?

It’s not happening, said Rick Stroud, Bucs beat writer for the Pony Express, aka St. Petersburg Times.

Stroud made the statement today while getting cozy on the air with Joe’s good friend, the Fabulous Sports Babe of ESPN 1040 AM.

Asked about the Bucs considering Taylor, Stroud said Bucs defensive coordinator Jim Bates wants Taylor but the deal has no chance of happening under the current regime.

“I know that Mark Dominik won’t do that,” Stroud said with confidence.

Stroud talked about how the Bucs just don’t have the players necessary to effectively run Bates’ defense. He also said Josh Freeman would not start on opening day, barring a rash of injuries.

    If Jason Taylor is looking for more than the nfl minimum he may as well look someplace else.
