There might be yet another twist in the ongoing criminal case involving Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor. Edward Carhart, one of Taylor’s attorneys for the trial on assault and battery charges that is supposed to start on April 10 in Miami, said yesterday the state is considering changes.

“The whole case is on the table,” said Carhart, who expects to hear from assistant state attorney Michael Grieco today about a review of the charges.

Taylor, who turns 23 tomorrow, faces a maximum of 46 years in prison on three felony assault charges and one simple battery count stemming from an incident last June in Miami. Taylor has been embroiled in controversy since Washington chose him fifth overall in the 2004 draft. The former University of Miami star has been fined by the NFL for walking out on the mandatory rookie symposium, for late hits and for spitting on Tampa Bay’s Michael Pittman. Taylor also refused to attend the Redskins’ conditioning program in preparation for the 2005 season. However, Taylor, who has shone on the field, was on hand when workouts for 2006 began on Monday.
