Hawks Sign Tony Taylor

New, comments

This is the day everyone has been waiting for. Excitement levels, having previously reached a fever pitch, have finally bubbled over. The Seahawks inked former University of Georgia linebacker Tony Taylor to a one-year deal. Sure, most of you haven't heard of Tony Taylor, but he started a lot of games at Georgia for Mark Richt's defense. Taylor went undrafted in 2007 before signing with the Falcons. After getting cut by the Falcons in 2008, Taylor spend the last year out of football. 

In his senior season at Georgia (2006), Taylor had 96 tackles, three sacks, seven interceptions, and two forced fumbles. He also scored two touchdowns, one off of a pick and one off of a fumble recovery.
