Philadelphia Eagles: Settling for Ike Taylor or Upgrading to Nnamdi Asomugha?
Nnamdi Asomugha and Ike Taylor

By now you've heard that Adam Caplan of foxsports.com has a "source" close to the Philadelphia Eagles who believes they will heavily pursue Ike Taylor once free agency begins.

Though I don't usually question the man who normally seems to be the fly on the wall in Eagles' meetings, I have to here.

The Eagles are apparently going to use more zone coverage to aid Jim Washburn's defensive line, and Ike Taylor's experience in zone coverage makes him the perfect candidate. But all of his years of experience also make him 31 years old, and I'm supposed to believe Andy Reid is going to give him a multi-year contract and make this guy a crucial factor in his defense of the future?

In this article I will do my best to debunk this rumor and hopefully make you realize, "why settle for anyone? We're competing for a Superbowl!"
