Jason Taylor spent the first 11 seasons of his career as a Miami Dolphin, hating the New York Jets and the New England Patriots. He has warmed to the idea of playing for the Pats, mostly because of the nice things team owner Robert Kraft said about him.

The thought of playing for the Jets? Taylor is still pretty cool to that notion.

"It'd be very, very, very difficult. Very difficult," Taylor said while taking a break from a free, two-day football camp for local boys and girls. "But at the end of the day, if you can't find a job anywhere else and the Jets call, I guess you've got to retire or go play."

"But the Jets are the Jets," Taylor said with a beaming smile. "I've had a lot of history saying bad things about Jets fans. The fireman hat guy [Fireman Ed] and all of the people in New York that are Jets fans are not the ones that are working on Wall Street. I've said all of those things. So I've got to leave it at that."
