Ashwaubenon's Taylor works out for Packers

Oct. 7, 2013
 

Former Ashwaubenon standout Mike Taylor worked out with the Green Bay Packers on Monday, his first NFL workout since undergoing separate surgeries for a sports hernia in January and March.

Taylor confirmed his workout with Press-Gazette Media on Monday evening with a separate league source indicating, though the tryout went well, he left without a contract.

A 6-foot-1 3/8, 234-pound linebacker, Taylor started all 47 games of his career appearances with the Badgers from 2009-2012 with 378 tackles (38.5 for a loss) and seven sacks and five interceptions during his career.

Taylor played in all 14 games as a senior for the Badgers, but developed a sports hernia that limited him at the combine and forced him out of his Wisconsin Pro Day earlier this year.

Taylor arrived at Wisconsin after a stellar high school career at Ashwaubenon where he helped the Jaguars win a WIAA state football championship as a sophomore and won a Division 1 state wrestling title as a senior at 215 pounds.

Taylor sat out his true freshman year at Wisconsin because of neck surgery, but missed the latter half of his redshirt freshman season with a knee injury. Hes currently vying to become the first Ashwaubenon alumnus to play in the NFL since running back Aaron Stecker, who played in the league from 1999-2009.
