What does he count against our cap in 2007? Obviously, his base salary comes off the books but does the rest of his amortized bonus get accelerated or does it also come off?

Ya, but I doubt JT will announce anything right away. It might take him awhile to decide and Saban won't have that long to wait.

According to 1.13, the rest of the amortized bonuses would get accelerated onto the 2007 cap. So the question now is, how much of Jason Taylor's bonuses have yet to amortize?

The other question is; can he re-do his contract, and save us all that cap money before he retires?

ALot of core players that are on the team are players from one of the previous regimes. Saban has really not started to implement his core group of players that every coach that is going through a rebuilding process needs to do. So I think that if JT goes, while Saban will be saddened to let such a quality person, I really think that saban wants to really start bringing in players that fit his coaching strategy. By the way if JT comes off the books that is 11M in cap space we save next year, we would be in super ridicuolous good shape as far as the cap goes. We would not even have to use all our cap space, and be in a good situation for years to come. By the way there is no garauntee that JT would have a repeat performace next year.

He won't retire, he loves playing the game....and despite losing, he had alot of fun playing football this year...and 33 is not that old, he keeps himself in great shape obviously.

Last year is his last year on his contract I can see him retiring after next season but not this year he will give it more go to see if he can make it to the SB.

I'm sure he's got a full or part time nanny helping his wife with the kids. Plantar fascitis can be taken care and should have by now. His back will get the care and rest it needs in the off season..... and Winning takes care of alot things....things will be better this year.

In my opinion, Taylor's decision will largely be based upon what Zach decides to do more than anything else. If Thomas stays, I believe he will talk Jason into sticking it out another year. These guys have been through it together and are as close as any two players could be. So, watch the news and rumor mills to see what Zach has planned for his future and you can count on Jason not being far behind. Of course, this is just my opinion.

Is Miami closer to the Super Bowl at this point, than New Orleans was at this point last year? the jets?I think that JT has a lot of pride and losing is tough on him. I bet after he sees who makes it to and wins the Super Bowl,he will feel that we are not that far away from making it. Then he will go to Hawaii and see for himself that he still can perform at the probowl level. He will be back rejuvinated and motivated.

i think if JT goes than Thomas considers going to. But realistically, i think they both stay for at least one more year.

Dude, ACTUALLY READ MY POSTS BEFORE YOU RESORT TO PERSONAL ATTACKS. If he retires, his amortized bonuses accelerate and are counted in entirety on our 2007 cap. My question is, how much is that?
