Wright On

Florida Times-Union reporter Michael C. Wright covers the ins and outs of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In this blog, he'll share behind-the-scenes anecdotes not published within the pages of the T-U, in addition to offering up incessant ramblings about nothing such as road trips, crummy hotels and not-so-delicious press box food. Perhaps he'll even delve into serious discussions about NFL issues. So ask questions, participate in conversations, or just learn more about the Jags.

Fred Taylor rumor not true

Rumors are swirling this morning about Jaguars running back Fred Taylor being arrested for DUI and resisting arrest after Sunday's win over San Diego.

I spoke to him this morning (he was at the Jaguars facilities for treatment) and these rumors don't appear to be true. Not one to be overly emotional, Taylor was clearly upset about the mere mention of his name associated with this type of rumor.

He called the situation "disrespectful". Perhaps he's correct. What's amazing is how quickly these things grow wings and take flight. By the time I spoke with Taylor, he'd already caught wind of everything. It's rare to see Taylor down in the dumps. But he expressed quite a bit of disappointment concerning the latest gossip.
