"I’ve taken the long road on a lot of different things," said Taylor, who has also battled drug and alcohol addictions. "I’ve taken the long road, you know, like when I had my drug problem. Yeah, I’ve been clean for almost 13 years now, but it took me a while. I had to learn . . . I took the long road.’ ...

"I just wish that I could have an easier road in life," he added. "Because as easy as football is to me . . . is as hard as life is to me. I’m just hopeful that life will come easier."

O’Hara not ready to hang ‘em up yet
Despite not playing this season, O’Hara says his career is not over. At least, not yet.

"I’m going to weigh my options this spring and see what opportunities are out there," the three-time Pro Bowler said Wednesday night. "If it seems like a good opportunity, I’d like to keep playing." O’Hara, 34, said he is now healthy.

But he said if he has played his last game, he’s OK with it.

"I also know I’ve had a good run, and I can’t play forever," O’Hara said. "I’m aware of that, and I don’t want to hang on logner than I should."
