First of all I want to state how excited I would be if our own Jason Taylor was to come back to the Phins. Yes, he and the FO had a harsh rupture in the past, however, things are appearing to be settling down on both ends. (people have seen Parcells and JT chatting at the country club). I feel that our attitude towards this should be of embrace and not act like angry kids. This is a man, a future HOF, who gave us a whole lot of joys where you could count those with the fingers of one hand almost for a decade down in Miami. Maybe his attitude last off season was a bit off, however, the reason might have been because he had endured more than 4 Front Offices and coaches and Qb´s in less than 5 years, 5 years in which he was playing the best football of his career, and seeing the end approaching he wanted a last shot at a SB or whatever he was looking for. Now if he wants to comeback we should embrace him, JT is family and you dont ask family for reasons. Missing out on the Phins 08´ season was enough punishment for him.
Well, today I saw three "points" or whatever, that I feel bring JT closer than ever to the 09 Dolphins:
1- The reason he left Washington was not because he didnt want to take part on the contractual mandatory work outs. This means a lot because we know that Parcells is high on off season workouts and having disciplinary parity on his team, so if JT is willing to take part on off season work outs, that would bring the 2 sides a lot more closer.
"I look forward to finding one, so I can get back to work, get with the program and keep going."
2- Its not about the money- We feel like a huge impediment for JT´s return would be the high salary he would demand, however, its looking like right now its not about the money anymore:
"it's not about the money. I walked away from the money in D.C."
3- He genuinely wants back in- When he was answering a question about how he felt about the patriots owner remarks about him and how he would love to have him in foxboro, he out of nowhere sent a clue to the Phins:
"But it's great to be wanted. It's great to be wanted. Sure, especially an organization like them or the Dolphins."
I thought this was hilarious, nobody in the room had even mentioned the Dolphins and he just slipped than one under the rug. And last of all, he talks about wanting to do what is best for his family, his family which lives in Miami, where his kids grew up.
"My main focus right now is spending time with the kids and the family, being back down here in Florida"
The man wants to come back to Miami and end his career playing at home.
