Seahawks looking at new role for Darrell Taylor in Year 2

RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks are trying a different approach with Darrell Taylor heading into his second year.

Taylor was drafted to be a pass rushing option off the edge but now Seattle is taking time to see how he may fit in as a strongside linebacker.

It’s a position of need for Seattle with veteran K.J. Wright currently unsigned as a free agent, and it appears the Seahawks are going to give Taylor a chance to earn the job.

Taylor was a spectator his entire rookie season as he recovered from leg surgery.
