Jason Taylor is expected to be released, but Tannenbaum wouldn’t go into details.


www.profootballtalk.com

Taylor has said that if Parcells would have be gone before he signed with the Jets he would have remained a Dolphin. One has to wonder if JT will be willing to come back to Miami and if the Dolphins would be interested in his services. I know this sounds wrong and I might piss of some, but it won't be the first time JT comes back with his tail between his legs.

Don't want this traitor anywhere near the Dolphins. He burned the bridge in 2008, and we let him come back in 2009. Then he turned around and stabbed the Dolphins in the back and burned the bridge again last season. He should just do everyone a favor and just retire, he has already tarnished his image.

Never thought JT had much choice but to sign with the Jets. IMO Parcells was a ******** when it came to JT. If Nolan thinks JT adds to the defense then by all means sign him. At this point in his career he would only add depth and limited playing time. Not much harm in that.

at least some understand. Teams have no loyalty to players yet they expect Taylor should retire if we dont want him or play for a lesser team than the Jets. We dumped Zach Thomas after an injury filled year and used his money on some truly useless players. Ogunleye had a 16 sack season and we basically tryed to super loweball him then ended up trading him for Marty friggin Booker.

Lets definately not forget how the Phins crapped on the best player to ever don a dolphin uniform Dan Marino, so they could sign Jay friggin Fielder

I have the same stance I have with shockey.

I don't think he'll command a lot of money, and he is still good as the situational/rotational pass rusher.

That could be a possibilty. If he can make the team better Im all for it. People expect too much of NFL players, they dont realize that its really just a job and not many people would just wait around at the last minute to have your team say we might resign you when you have a job available for a team that has a good chance to be a playoff team.

It amazes me that some are so butthurt over the fact that JT left. It's a business guys. Miami told him he wasn't wanted, so naturally, he went to the one place where he was wanted. It happened to be the Jets. So what?

Everyone here hates the Jets, and it's unfortunate that he went there, but it's not because he didn't want to be in Miami. He wanted to stay, Parcells didn't want him and said "**** off." It was purely a business decision. JT decided he wasn't ready to retire, so he did the only thing he could do which was sign with the Jets.

The difference is this is not just a job. The NFL is an entertainment business that needs to tailor to the fans as well as their pockets. Now that he sucks in NY as well, he may be willing to take a pay cut? Why not take that pay cut and stay last year. No, he had to get more money and then he had to betray us with the risk of loosing fan base. In my opinion, he made the wrong choice. It would be different if he spent only 5 years here, but he spent 95% of his career here. He should have stayed and took one for the team. I am tired of this job b.s. That is why there is no loyalty anymore. That is why teams can buy trophies now. Players too worried about money instead of the team.

Oh, and my opinion of the best player on D that we ever had is Zach. He played with more heart than any other player I have ever seen. When his career was done, he didn't go to the pats, he left the division. He is a true champ and deserves to be remembered as a true great. Taylor will not be.

Well you can believe that Thomas was the best defensive player ever for us and believe me I loved Zach but Taylor is probably a hall of famer at some point while Zach will probably never get his due. I think Zach was very underrated but Taylor is 10th all time in sacks.

Zach is a hall of fame LB. He led the team in tackles most of his career. Sacks aren't everything.

More pro bowl selections than Jason as well.

More tackles than any linebacker currently in the Hall of Fame. Pretty good stat!!

I used to be as big a fan of JT as I was of Zach. I felt like a bullet went though my stomach when Zach picked up his parking tag and put it into his car. I kinda felt the same way when Jason went to the skins, but at least it was out of the division. JT then blew it. Zach is the man, regardless of family. At least in my book.

And yet in limited playing time he would have been #2 in sacks on our team last year, tied for #2 in forced fumbles and the top non-DB in passes defensed.

Best player in Dolphin history? Maybe in terms of sacks, but not by elevating his play in meanngful games. I'll take Manny Fernandez, Doug Betters, AJ Duhe, Jake Scott any day. Those guys were difference makers where it mattered- In playoff games. Manny Fernandez completely disrupted the Redskins offense in the SB. I can't even imagine JT making that kind of impact.

Unlike JT, Marino played well in the playoffs. I recall a playoff game vs the KC Chiefs ( I was there). The Chiefs had arguably the best set of CB's in the league (Ross, Lewis), Derrick Thomas and a physical ball conrol offense with Barry Word and Christian Okoye.
They had a lead going into the 4th quarter and Marino threw a late TD pass to Clayton under very tight coverage.
Marino also had a decent game in the SB (unfortunately no one else did) and threw for over 300yds while under constant pressure and with no running game. I recall a 45-28 win vs the Steelers in the AFC championship game where Marino was dazzling.
I can't recall JT making a single game changing play or sack in any of the Phins playoff games. He was on the field during some of the most embarrasing playoff losses in Phins history. Marino was on those teams too, but he was well past his prime.
I stand by my original post.

Also heard this on Sirius radio this morning driving to work.

I expect Miami to sign him to a couple day contract so that he can retire a Dolphin.
Sirius mentioned that he is going to retire. Even though he left the Dolphins for the Jets I hold no grudges and feel he should retire as a Dolphin.

Vernon Gholston is done as a Jet after 3 failed years.

The dude made about 24 million off of 3 sacks against Jake Long in Michigan-Ohio State game then did virtually nothing in the pros. He may be picked up for veteran minimum $500K by someone who wants to give him another chance. If he couldn't make it the Jets friendly system I doubt he improves somewhere else. Another reason for the rookie wage scale changes that are needed in the NFL. He may just retire since he set for life and in good health.

Jenkins who some were saying is top 5 nose tackle is released. Obviously Sexy Rexy doesn't feel the same.

Thats all for now

If he would have gone to the Bills then it would be a different story...Cox's history with the Bills is similar to Taylors was with the Jets...Cox didnt go sign with the Bills after he gave them the 2 finger salute..But look back at some of the stuff Taylor said about the Jets and their fans...And then to go play for them....It would have been like Cox going to play for the Bills after the stuff he did and said about the Bills and their fans...So in that aspect, Cox wins...

saying that the player is unworthy of remembrance after giving his all, leaving pieces of himself on 32 fields across this land is akin to your friends and family members turning their collective backs on "you" when your burdens are laid down.

when everyone declared he couldn't be the guy…he proved he was that, and more. now what; we should lessen him?

he carried our shield, he was one of our warriors. a standard bearer, a captain. he is a citizen of Miami.

honor him.

If he maintains a low profile the next few years, continues on with his charity work, keeps his trap shut on all things relating to the Fins directly or by negative inference like this year, then I can see time healing these wounds. Right now, the local sentiment beyond this or any forum is less than positive. It's possible for JT to rehab his image but after his shenanigans, quotes and actions over the last few years, he needs to understand that Rome wasn't built in a day.

Now that we can see what a piece of Sh** Parcells was we all can see more clearly why Jason did what he did. Jason gave alot to the Phins and I for one will always be a Jason Taylor fan! I mean if the Bills can forgive Thurmon Thomas playing for the Fins I think WE all can take Jason Taylor back withopen arms!!! Sign your one dollar contract and take your place in Dolphins history forever Jason!

Like him or hate him. After all the dust settles he will retire a Dolphin.

Any merit in looking at Gholston? He would love to prove something to the Jets, if he got the opportunity.

I made a thread about it and got bashed LOL...if he is cheap...Id like to bring him in camp and see what he can do...

It's amazing that what seemed to be a strength of your team defense has now become a hole and what was a hole for us just last year is now our strength (Solia-franchise tag).

How fast things change in the NFL.

The great thing is w/ Jenkins missing most of the last 2 seasons we still made the title game each year. He would have been huge for our D and maybe put us over the top but we will need some size in the middle of our D now along w/ a pass rusher- those are our 2 biggest needs.

12 years of giving his life, his body and his soul to our team and we get to act like he owes us more before he can retire a fin? comeon.

Even though Jenkins is rehabbing now, Im not sure he will play next year....Torn ACLs SUCK...and to tear the same 1 2xs is really rough to come back from...And he is 31 so its not like he is a spring chicken anymore....But sadly the Jets D still did decent with him out...

I understand he is in for a tough rehab but according to everything I have heard he is serious about coming back. Things could always change but we'll see.

How many other Dolphin greats left to play for a hated division rival after they bad mouthed their fans and organization? Dont get me wrong, Im all for players trying to win titles because thats why most play the game...But he didnt have to go to the Jets...Zach Thomas had a chance to play for whoever after he was release from Miami, and even had offers from the Pats...but he turned them down to sign with Dallas...

Let's not forget Dallas was the NFC SB favorite heading into that 2008 season which Zach played w/ them. Zach had a choice, what was Taylor's choice? sign w/ SB contending Jets or wait around for Miami to offer him a deal? He didn't have the same options.

Our D is going to be good regardless, it could have truly been great if he was healthy the last 2 years but at least this year we won't be counting on him and won't have big $ tied up in him only to see him get hurt. I hope he comes back but who knows?

When isnt Dallas the media super bowl favorite out of the NFC?? The media love them some Cowboys for some reason...But honestly we dont know what could have happened...Miami offered him a contract before the end of the 09 season and he turned it down...Im not saying he dosent deserve to be able to retire a Dolphin and get his name in the ring of honor SOME DAY...Just not this year...

Yeah, The Steelers were able to push you around running the ball in that 1st half when the game almost got away.

Gholston is done. He's got $24 million clams and nothing to play for anymore. You think he is going to bust his but for $500K

Jenkins who some were saying is top 5 nose tackle is released. Obviously Sexy Rexy doesn't feel the same.

Former Univerisity of Utah players now compromise 50% of the starting NT's in the AFCE.

As for JT, It would not surprise if he pulls a Favre and reunites w/ Wanny in Buffalo.

I know I don't post much, if at all Bill, but thank you for being a voice of reason about JT.

They were 13-3 and had the 1 seed in '07, they had legit reasons to be considered a favorite heading into 2008.

I don't know when it will be but I am sure the dolphins, fans and JT will make up and he'll be bashing the Jets at his ring of honor ceremony and that is probably the way it should be.
