In his first season playing a hybrid end/linebacker position in 2005, the nine-year veteran Taylor collected 12 sacks and earned his fourth Pro Bowl berth, although an injury will keep him out of the league's all-star game on Feb. 12. Will the hiring of Capers be a real boost for Taylor, even though he will be 32 by the start of next season?
