    Jason Taylor talking with Miami Dolphins about possible return - ESPN

    Ah, what a pathetic franchise. Note, the last part was all said with a smile.

    Say what you will I really like it that at least some players take these hated rivalries strongly like us fans. Although Ty Law was up there as one of the handful of best CBs we ever had, it really irked me that during a game he would pal around with hated rivals, e.g. Keyshawn. I guess I was the kind of hacker player who during the game did not show deference to hated oponents.

    But he also said this below about the PATS. He seems too attached to the Phins. His heart is there.


    The six-time Pro Bowler recently said at another Jason Taylor Foundation event he would have a hard time playing for the New England Patriots after so many years hating them, but he also mentioned how flattered he was to read comments from Patriots owner Robert Kraft that they would love to sign Taylor.

    "I'll always be a Dolphin," Taylor said. "There was no bigger fan last year than me. I'm leaving the field from Redskins games and running to see what the Dolphins are doing and checking my phone throughout the day. Those guys on that team will tell you: I was in contact the whole time.
    "No one was happier when they went to New York and beat those guys," he said of the regular-season finale to clinch the AFC East championship.

    Surprise, Taylor hates the Jets more then he hates the Pats. LOL

    Might have something to do with the Jets winning all but 5 games or so against the Fish during Jason's 11 years in Miami.

    Jets own Miami, where as they seem to play there best against the Pats.

    I think Taylor would be a good signing for any AFCE team.

    He was given the choice of coming to off-season conditining program and getting $8.5 million dollars or getting cut, and he chose getting cut.

    Me, I would have lifted the weights, but hey! What's $8.5 million anyway?

    who wants a guy that runs into the locker room to see how
    his old team was doing?
    I don't want Taylor here. There has to be a better alternative.:rocker:

    If Parcels isn't jumping to pick this guy up, why should the PATs?
    Does he know something BB doesn't ?

    Well his name would be Julius Peppers, who i think the pats want first.. but we will find out in 2 weeks if we have a pass rusher or not..

    I have yet to see one viable way of getting Peppers under the cap for this season.

    Amen. Ditto for Peppers, BTW. [And, FWIW, I think the Patriots signing Peppers is like Wes Welker marrying Gisele—yeah, they might really want it to happen, but it's highly unlikely. ;)]

    I like Jason Taylor, but he needs to learn when to keep his mouth shut. That said, you can't blame him for hating the Green Beans.

    If the Dolphins sign a first day outside linebacker, they do not want

    Taylor. If this is the case, Taylor will condescend to sign a two year

    contract with the Patriots for 8 million per year guaranteed money.

    I'd really like to know how they'll afford $8M when they only have $6M or so in cap space. . . . :)

    Yes, the Jest have won the Jets/Dolphins championship games more often. Last year when there was a real championship at stake, the Jest came up a little short.

    I guess when you have been to ZERO SB's in 40 years, which means they have won ZERO AFC Championship "owning" Miami, except when it counts, is something to cling on to.:D

    For realz, yo. Not happenin'

    I would have believed you if only you'd said "book it" or "write it down".

    That's MAYBE year two money on a deal with Pep.

    Not only that, but he isn't worth 8 million per year. I'd rather the Pats draft someone than waste 8 million on Taylor.

    I was for the Taylor move instead of Peppers because we don't have to give up any draft picks and I thought he was a cheaper alternative that we could actually afford. Maybe I was wrong.

    In any case, his heart will always be with the Dolphins. Parcels probably knows that and is waiting for Taylor to lower his asking price... banking on the fact that Jason won't want to sign anywhere else.

    Taylor is trying to play it cool. I think he still envisions himself

    as one of the elite players in the NFL and should be paid accordingly.

    He was being paid millions by the Redskins but his 'heart' was with the Dulphins? The hell with him.

    Maybe his heart will be with his dancing with the stars comrades next year. Who needs this nonsense? He's probably washed up anyway.

    Nope, the Patriots finished at 11-5, tied for first and beat the Fins the second time around. The first time was the debut of the Wildcat and Cassel was still getting his feet wet.

    What was the Jest reason for their loss? They knew the Wildcat was coming and they had their QB all season.

    OK, the reason the Jest lost was they had their QB all season.:rofl:

    The fact Taylor checked Miami scores after Redskins - to me is a huge red flag.
    Either he doesn't care about winning and just wants to play for the Fins OR more likely he didn't believe in the Skins - who does?

    If he comes to NE, he needs to have his heart into it and dedicate himself to winning. AS in don't check Dolphins scores!!

    If he loves Miami so bad Parcells knows it and will lowball JT, if JT does not accept the lowball offer (doubt he will, after all he's a probowler and championship caliber dancer) and thinks he can come play here despite his heart being in Miami I would tell him 'Thanks but no thanks. Go get Miami season tickets that way you don't have to check the score'.

    BB has always said he looks for football players first. Passion for the game.
    Well, lack of heart is a lack of passion and I would not want that in my locker room.

    I'm willing to bet that Tom "'F'ing" Brady would be scanning the Patriots scores after games if BB traded him to the Redskins.

    Yeah, I don't see ANY way in the world we give Taylor 8 mill per. I think something around 5-6 would be absolute maximum. I think if they were trying to spend that kind of money, they'd go after Peppers harder. Not only do we not have the cap space, but there's no way Taylor is worth that much.

    I could see something around a bit more than what Vrabel was making, this is how I get the 5-6 per value. We would have to make some adjustments just to get that 5-6 per yr deal done, but I wouldn't totally count it out.

    FWIW--I think both of these players are unlikely at this point, but I'm not counting Taylor out.

    Or even worse Bruschi hugging Manning after the AFC championship game. It's actually good sportsmanship, but I have anger issues I need to deal with and that didn't help.

    Well, with 1,000 posts so far this offseason on Jason Taylor, not sure what I'm adding, but do any of you really seriously think there is any possibility he will be a Patriot? I have it at about 0.0 percent -- just about a tie for the possibility that I thought the Pats would really end up playing in Hartford. Just not going to happen.

    After a face-saving period in which Parcells won't look like he caved into demands by a prima donna to skip off-season training, Taylor will sign and return to the Dolphins.

    I think if BB wantd him a deal would be already in place. I would pass on him and go the draft route.
