Plagued by a knee injury in August and a calf injury in September, Taylor produced only 3.5 sacks and 29 tackles in 526 snaps.
Taylor’s $8.5 million salary cap figure is the third highest on the Redskins, and it would be stunning if he returned at that price or returned at all. If Taylor does return, Daniels foresees a good rotation.
“If they do bring him back and bring me back, that would be a good rotation because they could move me inside when he’s on the field and both of us could be kept fresh because neither of us are young,” Daniels said.
Andre Carter also would benefit from the occasional series off. He played 85.9 percent (802 of 933) of the snaps last year.
