Miami Dolphins great Jason Taylor is currently visiting the New York Jets. If you are a Dolphin fan, that alone will twist your gut and create nausea. After many ignored calls from Taylor and his agent to Miami's front office, Taylor has finally with a push from his agent flew to New York today and is being treated like a five star prospect.
If Jason Taylor signs with the Jets than Miami fans will begin to question the Parcells and company decision making. Why would Miami not want someone of Taylor's playmaking abilities, even at the age of 35, He still plays as if he were 25.
Miami has made many statements declaring they want to get younger and that's fine but they just resigned Jason Ferguson who is 35 years old, suspended eight games and coming off a major injury. It just doesn't make sense to resign someone who you are not sure will be ready after the suspension due to his injury and ignore the unquestioned leader of Miami's locker room and second best Miami Dolphin ever behind quarterback Dan Marino.
Last year when Team Captain Chad Pennington was out with injury and Joey Porter's off field drama causing a stir with upper management, Jason Taylor was the only Captain speaking with Coach Sparano during the season.
Even though he was offered better deals from New England and New York, Jason refused and signed a 1 year/1.8 million dollar deal to play for his Miami Dolphins. During the 2009 season Jason proved himself again playing better than the money they were paying him and way better than any other linebacker on the team. If Miami does resign Taylor by the help of God, that will solve the Outside Linebacker need short term and allow Miami to focus on a wideout or free safety in the upcoming draft.
This morning Miami finally contacted Taylor while he was in New York, hopefully there is still a chance Miami can sway their greatest defensive player in team history to return and pray while he is in New York he does not sign with Miami's and his most hated rival.
