  Patriots | Fred Taylor contemplating retirement    Wed Jul 13, 02:47 AM

New England Patriots RB Fred Taylor, an impending free agent, said Tuesday, July 12, that he is contemplating retirement. 'I'm so back and forth, I'm straddling the fence, one foot in, one foot out,' Taylor said about the possibility of retirement. 'I do know that if I'm going to attack it, I have to attack it with 100 percent passion and heart and desire. I can't be straddling if I'm going to do it.'

Footballguys view: If Taylor does decide to stay in the NFL he won't be playing for New England. The Patriots backfield is jampacked with talent and there's simply no room for Taylor on the roster. We could see a team like the Broncos adding Taylor for veteran RB depth.

  Patriots | Fred Taylor not expected to return    Sun Jul 3, 01:35 PM

The New England Patriots are not expected to re-sign impending free-agent RB Fred Taylor.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Taylor isn't the same back he used to be and may have difficulty finding a new home in 2011. He should make a roster if he can stay healthy in training camp, but we're not expecting him to be a fantasy factor in 2011.

  Patriots | BenJarvus Green-Ellis' workload could be cut    Tue Nov 16, 01:48 PM

New England Patriots RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis' workload is likely to be cut when RB Fred Taylor (toe) returns to action, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. The team would like to see Green-Ellis in the mid-20s for carries, with Taylor in the low teens.

Footballguys view: An important note for fantasy owners here. Fred Taylor needs to stay healthy before we're too concerned about 'The Lawfirm' and his role reducing. Danny Woodhead's role should largely remain the same as the team's change of pace back and receiver out of the backfield.
