When the Ravens drafted Tyrod Taylor three years ago, they took a late round flier on a guy who boasted a weak arm, questionable instincts, and supreme athleticism. He lived in Michael Vick's shadow at VT, always drawing comparisons.
In week 17 against the Bengals, Taylor got his first chance at extended playing time in a regular season game. Throwing for a pedestrian 149 yards and completing 15 of 25 pass attempts, Taylor also thew a game clinching interception and took 3 sacks for an astounding 30 yards. Not the game he was looking for.
The next questions is, how much longer are the Ravens going to experiment with him? Will they resign him? Trade him?
With the evolving game with quarterbacks such as Cam Newton, RG3, etc., Taylor's talent may be better utilized on another team. Should the Ravens try to trade him to a team that needs an athletic back up?
Is there any chance, with the Ravens looking for a new slot receiver, they give him a shot? Maybe just in certain personal, but the Ravens could give Taylor a chance to utilize his great athleticism and running instincts as a slot receiver. At 6' 1" and 215 lbs, he is no tweener and certainly has the football ability to play there.
It couldn't hurt giving him a shot. The possibilities do not have to end there, however, as this would completely open up the playbook to screens, reverse, flea flickers, etc.
