Oh the irony.

Jason Taylor bashed the Jets throughout his career, mocking loyal fans and tormenting Jets offenses.

He made his hatred public.  Earning a victory against New York was his worthy of a trophy in his eyes, bringing down a Jets quarterback was his mission and talking down to gang green fans his consolation. He never dreamed he would have to dawn the dark green jersey of New York’s football team. Playing for the enemy and fighting to make tackles in favor of the Jets probably nauseated him.

The sad reality is that his career may end in New York City. Home of the Jets, the Dolphins biggest rival and the land of the fans he frequently targeted.

This offseason, Taylor was not brought back by the Dolphins for another season. Despite playing 11 of his 12 seasons wearing teal and orange and becoming an all time franchise player, the Dolphins wanted to become younger at the position.  After being consistently low balled by his former franchise Taylor had enough. He decided he wanted to come to a team that could end his illustrious career with a superbowl title. That’s when the Jets called.

Taylor signed with the Jets and immediatly noticed a difference. The communist like Dolphins philiosphy run by Tony Sparano was much different than what was operarted under Rex Ryan’s Jets. The cool and relaxed style provided a sense of refreshment for the 36 year old giant. After running in such a tight knit aggressive approach for so many years, the new style was something Taylor believed he would be able to thrive in. With Rex Ryan predicting Taylor would have 15+ sacks in this system, it was much easier to be convinced.
