After getting a close look at Philadelphia Eagles rookie cornerback Rasul Douglas at OTA’s, Eagles Hall of Fame cornerback and NFL Executive VP of Football Operations Troy Vincent told Fran Duffy of the team’s official website that Douglas brought back memories of one of teammates back in 2001-2003.
“Moved very well. Big, long kid. Reminded me a little bit of Bobby Taylor,” Vincent said. “Probably a little bit better quickness. He was smooth.”
– ‘ Vincent and Taylor formed one of the league’s best starting cornerback duos to help the Eagles get to three consecutive NFC Championship Games from 2001-03. Vincent earned five Pro Bowls during his Eagles tenure and his 29 interceptions rank seventh in franchise history. Taylor, whose 6-3, 216-pound frame is similar to Douglas’ 6-2, 209-pound body, started 109 games for the Eagles and earned Pro Bowl honors following the 2002 campaign. ‘
