    Miami Dolphins: Jason Taylor (following the Alonzo Mourning model)

    Jason Taylor greatly admires Alonzo Mourning.

    They are two of the three most significant South Florida pro athletes of the past two decades, if you take their athletic exploits and community contributions into account. (Dwyane Wade trumps all but Dan Marino on the athletic side, but he is still building his off-court legacy.)

    Mourning and Taylor have also become friends.

    And now Taylor can follow Mourning's lead, in Taylor's second turn as a Dolphin.

    Remember when Mourning returned to the Heat?

    Some, myself included, wondered how he would adjust to his changed role, on the court and in the locker room. How would he handle no longer being the man? Many fans were angry when Mourning left for New Jersey. Then, when he came back, Shaquille O'Neal and Dwyane Wade were here. O'Neal was the international megastar; Wade was the emerging prodigy. No longer would Mourning have the last word on all locker room matters, and no longer would he get the majority of the minutes. He would be a supporting player, not a central one.

    And how did he handle that?
