Miami Dolphins & Jason Taylor

The labor dispute is actually winding down…according to multiple mainstream media outlets.  Many are predicting that a new deal will be done by the end of next week and free agency could begin the following Monday if not sooner.  Personally, I will believe it when I see it.  When FA does start again, there is expected to be a feeding frenzy for new blood across the NFL, unsigned rookie deals, undrafted free agent signings, and then there is Jason Taylor.

Taylor has a long history as a player for the Miami Dolphins and over the last several years his history with the team has been marred by a “he said, she said, you hurt my feelings” spat.  Now, Jason Taylor is set once again to become an unrestricted free agent.  Released by the NY Jets prior to the lockout, JT is a man with a home (Miami) but without a team.

Some speculate the Taylor could rejoin the Dolphins as a 3rd down pass rushing specialist.  His main issues with the team over the last several years has been directly related to his relationship with Bill Parcells.  Parcells is gone and Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano both have much warmer relations with the aging DE/LB.

Taylor however has said that the bridges in Miami were burned and recently stated he would love to return to the NY Jets and Rex Ryan.  His play last year was hardly Tayloresque.  There is also talk that Taylor could make a visit to Foxboro where Patriot HC Bill Belichick has been trying to woo the former All-Pro north.  Whether the Patriots are confident they would get what they need out of the twilight Taylor may be a deal breaker.

For the Dolphins however, Taylor would fill in as part-time player and allow the bubble HOF’er to finish his career in Miami.  The question is this.  Would the Dolphins fans want the Dolphins team to take Taylor back?  Many fans were immediately turned off by Taylor joining the Jets last year and Taylor lost even more fans after his visit to Miami last year that had JT yelling an obscenity to the Dolphins booing fans following a JT sack and dance.

What are your thoughts on JT returning to Miami?

    Screw Screw Jason Taylor. He threw away any chance of The ROH when he went to play for the lowlife Jets and that fat windbwindbag , rex Ryan. Go retire and find another reality show, I hear celebrity Apprentice is looking for a new cast.

    Taylor just got cut by his third team in three years because aside from a few notable plays he flat sucks as an outside linebacker. The bottom line is he didn’t fit right in our 3-4 two years ago, he didn’t fit the Jets 3-4 last year and he won’t fit now. Let it go.

    One thing to crap on him for running his mouth, its another calling him a “bubble hof” or that he pretty much sucks. The guy only started 5 games last year and had 5.5 sacks and 2 fumbles. How is that bad again? He has 132.5 career sacks and 39 forced fumbles 8 int’s and 3 td’s 66 pass deflections.

      JT imo is not a 100 % lock for 1st or 2nd year ballot which means he will be on a bubble.

  • Jason Michaels

    Congrats to the sports writer of this article you summed up your football a flash yes Taylor became a minor distraction with the whole retirement/dancing w/ the stars garbage but a on the bubble/Hall of famer your out of your mind he’s about as sure fire as any defensive player can be with that said every Dolphin fan should be ashamed of him going to the jets no doubt about it but he’s absolutely a sure fire first ballot hall of famer and big time overachiever with his awkward frame not to mention he was a class act for the Dolphins organization for a long time!!

    • Brian Miller

      Sorry man but I dont believe that JT is a sure fire HOF’er without a ring or at least an appearence. He does not posess a winning resume overall and voters look at that. Should he get in? Yes, but not a first and maybe not a 2nd year ballot.

    Juck Fason
    you turned your back on the Dolphins
    the jests really? (unforgivable)
    you will get into the hall of fame
    but you will have to do it wearing turd green
    and I could care less that you live in Miami
    I live in San Diego the weather here is way better

    Why this toPIC? Is it because the writer is afraid to address the real issue with this team? That Heene sucks ass?
    Until Heene is out of a Miami Dolphin uniform we’re never going anywhere. Sparano got lucky with Penny and that’s all this crew of losers will attain until they clean house completely. Let’s hope the owner decides to retire soon too.
