Jason Taylor is somewhere in Los Angeles working on his moves, by the time the Dancing With The Stars calls it a wrap Jason Taylor will don a different uniform. He has been informed by the Dolphins that he will be traded prior to the draft.Rumors began circulating on Friday of interest from the Packers and the Vikings for the service of the 11 year Miami Dolphin stallwart defensive end. Like his brother-in-law Zach Thomas, Jason may get a shot at a ring. Just not in Miami.
As the season wore on last year, I told many fans to embrace the final games win or lose, that we would we see the end of an era. Jason Taylor will likely embrace the news as he has been very outspoken of his lack of desire to go through a rebuild. The only thing left is the good-bye and the final destination of the 2007 Walter Payton Man of the Year. Perhaps it is just that a community and a team that benefited so much from one person, gets the chance to win when it is apparent that he will not do so here.
Like the man he is, we will not hear words of anger, only relief and good-will. Zach Thomas is no longer a Miami Dolphin, the only other player on this team that has mattered for more than 10 years actively will no longer be either, provided a trade partner is found.
Jason Taylor has a few years left in his tank, and then a Hollywood future. What he doesn’t have is anymore time in Miami…at least not as a Dolphin.
