New Dolphin - Jason Taylor

Jason Taylor is a Dolphin. Again. I'm not going to freak out, or float in exultation either. We all know what Jason has done as a Miami Dolphin. We don't know if he can still do it. He might be able to, he might not.

The real question for me is if he's going to attend the OTAs that he famously skipped last year. He was remarkably out of football shape last year and it ended his season very quickly, after suffering two injuries in a month's time.

I do find it somewhat ironic that as we spent the last two days here discussing the new up and coming pass rushers on this team, the team was hammering out the contract terms to bring Taylor back. Does that mean our discussions have been in vain? Didn't they say that they would wait to see how Wake and Bake (these things write themselves!) turned out before making a decision on Taylor? They obviously didn't wait. Maybe they thought the Pats were about to make their move.

When I see him actually attending the OTAs and Camp and 'showing up' I will be as giddy as the rest of the fans. But until then, I'll move with cautious optimism, and hope for a re-birth of the Dolphins' sack monster.
