Maybe he is distracted by all this, but right now he is struggling:

Quote:
Now starting at free safety for the 'Skins first-round pick Sean Taylor? Uh, no. Try little-used third-year veteran Andre Lott, whose first two NFL seasons were remarkable only because of how unremarkable they were. That Lott is running with the first unit is partly attributable to the fact the former Tennessee star, a fifth-round pick in 2002 who has zero starts and 15 tackles in two seasons, has enjoyed a very nice camp. And also to the fact Taylor, who on occasion has worked as the No. 3 free safety, is off to what can only be called an inauspicious start. There just seems to be some bad karma floating around Taylor, who some scouts felt was the best safety prospect since Ronnie Lott, but who can't squeeze ahead of Andre Lott on the depth chart. The guy fired his agent days after the draft and then took three months to choose a replacement, only to fire the replacement Tuesday night, again leaving him without an agent. He played poorly in minicamps, suffered an eye abrasion when Arrington hit him in the face with a shaving cream pie, then skipped out early on the NFL's rookie symposium, which earned him a $25,000 fine. In the team's pre-camp last week, Taylor sprained his knee, and he has taken to blowing off interview requests. When pressed about their evaluations of him, some scouts now acknowledge Taylor basically mailed it in the second half of last year, knowing he was leaving school to enter the draft, and making sure he didn't get hurt. Who knows, maybe the guy will turn out to be the second coming off Ronnie Lott, but right now, he can't make a play.

Time for him to put away these distractions, buckle down and live up to his potential.
