That was news to him.
"That isn't true," Taylor said. "I don't know where some of that ----- comes from sometimes."
Taylor did say he is still in discussions with the Patriots, but no deal was done as of 9:30 a.m.
"We’ll see how it goes," he said.
Taylor also visited with the Buffalo Bills this week, and said there are a couple of other teams in the mix. Taylor was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this month after 11 seasons with the team as they move toward a youth movement.
Taylor has two good years left and would certainly be a good addition to the Patriots offense, a veteran back who can run in their spread sets.
