Could Phil Taylor’s Holdout Be on The Verge of Ending?


Thanks to the new collective bargaining agreement, defensive lineman Phil Taylor’s holdout wasn’t likely to last all that long anyway. Nevertheless, Browns fans will be excited to know that it could be ending as soon as Tuesday, as Taylor tweeted some encouraging news on Monday night.

Here is what Taylor tweeted:

"Good news. Stay tuned. Might be on that field 2mrw. Like a kid at the candy shop"

Even if the deal doesn’t get done tomorrow, it seems as though Taylor will be on the field within the next few days. At that point, we can begin looking past the holdout and to what Taylor can do on the field. The CBA is certainly working its magic – if the Browns only have to go three full practices before getting everyone in camp, then it’s doing its job.

  • Despite losing out on defensive lineman Brodrick Bunkley in an exceptionally bizarre fashion, the Browns’ trade of a conditional seventh-round pick in 2012 to the St. Louis Rams for offensive lineman John Greco is a reality. The versatile lineman can play both tackle and guard.
