Agent for RB Chester Taylor and the Vikings meet

Chester Taylor is one running back that could get some serious looks on the free agent market. With that, the Vikings are still looking to keep the backup to A.P., and the Star-Tribune reports today that the agent for Taylor and the Vikings are talking about what it could take to bring him back to Minnesota:

The Vikings and running back Chester Taylor’s agent, Ken Sarnoff, held initial discussions at the NFL Scouting Combine and have plans to meet again. All indications are that the Vikings’ goal is to keep Taylor as their third-down back behind Adrian Peterson. Childress said he did not know how attractive Taylor would find it to leave Minnesota to be the lead runner for a team. “You’d have to speak to Chester about that,” Childress said. “To see what he aspires to right now. I know I met with all those guys [pending free agents] before they left and the conversations were good. He knows how we feel about him, but I’m never going to begrudge anybody an opportunity to make money.”
