I am looking to add to that history by setting high standards, and holding everyone here accountable to those standards. There is a lot of work to do, and this is day one. We’re going to attack every day with enthusiasm to get this team ready to go.”
The Bengals will introduce Taylor to media in a news conference at Paul Brown Stadium on Tuesday.
