REPORT: Dolphins "don't seem to have much interest" in Jason Taylor

New, comments

The latest news about Jason Taylor's possible return to Miami isn't so promising - if you're one of the many who want the legendary pass-rusher to return to the Dolphins.  The Sun-Sentinel is reporting that the Dolphins are not so serious in re-signing the free agent pass-rusher:

The Miami Dolphins don't seem to have much interest in re-signing Jason Taylor, who has been a free agent since the Washington Redskins released him in early March.

Taylor, 34, has expressed a strong desire to return to the franchise with which he earned six Pro Bowl berths and the 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award. Taylor's family and foundation are based in South Florida. But the Dolphins have not begun serious negotiations with him.

The New England Patriots still have a strong interest, according to sources. Another option is Tampa Bay: The Buccaneers' defensive coordinator is Jim Bates, a fan of Taylor's from their days together with the Dolphins. Taylor is expected to make a decision within the next week or two.

I can't say I'd be surprised if the Dolphins did indeed take a pass on Taylor this time around.  But would it hurt to see Taylor in a Patriots' uniform?  Of course.

In my opinion, though, this says more to me about this regime's feelings towards players already on the roster - Cameron Wake comes to mind first - than it does about Jason himself.
