Redskins Notes: League sources confirmed that rookie safety Sean Taylor, who had two interceptions and a touchdown Monday night ("Last week he really lit it up," Gibbs said, "not only in the game but in practice.") officially submitted paperwork with the NFL Players Association making Drew Rosenhaus his new agent. Taylor fired Rosenhaus two days after being taken with the fifth overall pick, used agents Jeffrey Moorad and Eugene Mato to negotiate his contract and then fired them last week and rehired Rosenhaus. Taylor, whose six-year deal includes $13 million in bonus money and could be worth a maximum of $40 million, was upset about the higher bonuses other top picks received after his deal was signed and is seeking to renegotiate, although the contract cannot be altered for one year. Taylor's appeal of his $25,000 fine for leaving the mandatory NFL rookie symposium remains under review and no decision has been made, sources said. BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Eagles receiver Terrell Owens insisted yesterday that he did not refer to former San Francisco teammate Jeff Garcia as being gay during an interview with Playboy magazine that is scheduled to hit newsstands Friday. When asked about Garcia's denial of media rumors that he was gay, Owens said in the magazine, "If it looks like a rat and smells like a rat, by golly, it's a rat." Owens described his interview with Playboy's Dewey Hammond as a "loose" conversation that led to his answer about Garcia, who is now the quarterback in Cleveland. "My thing was that I did not say he was gay," Owens said yesterday. "I'm not sure if Jeff is gay or not. He had a girlfriend when we were in San Fran, and there's been reports he has a girlfriend now, so that was the extent of it. Everyone is going to make a big deal about it, but like I said, it's not like I came out and said Jeff is gay. People asked me the same question about Steve Young. Everybody is going to have their rumors." Interestingly, Garcia's girlfriend, Carmella Decesare, was a high-profile bystander at Browns practice yesterday. And she just happens to be the 2004 Playboy Playmate of the Year. Owens' comments angered the lesbian and gay community. "Terrell Owens needs to make a public apology," said Rita Addessa, executive director of the Lesbian and Gay Task Force of Philadelphia.
