Seahawks signed a beast linebacker today to their practice squad

Mike Taylor was an All-American at Wisconsin but after the season he needed two surgeries that kept him out of the NFL. He never stopped working, but had to get 100 percent before getting a shot in the NFL. Well today he was given that opportunity.

“It’s been unfortunate to have two surgeries after the season,” Taylor, the former University of Wisconsin linebacker standout, told by phone this week. “I definitely wasn’t expecting that. Unlucky, but that’s the situation I’m in and all I can do like with any injury is just keep moving forward, get healthy and keep working.”

During his four-year career at Wisconsin, Taylor started all 47 games in which he played. He registered 378 tackles, including 273 over the past two seasons as an outside linebacker. In 2012, he earned first-team All-Big Ten honors from the media for a second straight year. Both surgeries were for a sports hernia, he is 100 percent now, I think he is going to impress.

“I can control what I can control. All I worry about is myself and getting better. If someone calls or something like that, I’ll be ready.”

Well Mike that time has come, go get em Champ!!
