When we last saw Jason Taylor...
The Miami Dolphins think Taylor spent too much time in the dancing limelight and not enough time concentrating on football. Miami doesn't want him amd Taylor wants out.
Naturally, Taylor wants to go to a contender, and while the Packers are interested, Taylor's people say it's probably not going to happen.
Adam Schein of Foxsports.com says it should:
Miami needs to trade Jason Taylor to Green BayThe Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had a report last week that the Packers are kicking the tires on a deal for the disgruntled Dolphin star. Two members of the Packers' defensive staff have experience coaching Taylor. Plus, Green Bay general manager Ted Thompson has a great relationship with Miami's football Czar, Bill Parcells.
Frankly, it makes too much sense.
I firmly believe that Taylor has played his last down in Miami. He has no interest in working for the new regime.
The Packers shouldn't worry about Taylor talking his way out of Miami, even though it's been a major turnoff and big distraction to the Fins. He's always had the reputation of being a hard worker and team leader. Wanting to finally get a ring, Taylor won't be a headache for Mike McCarthy.
Taylor is still an elite pass rusher with at least two good years left in the tank. A line of Aaron Kampman, Cullen Jenkins, Justin Harrell and Taylor would be one of the best defensive fronts in the entire league.
Plus, Green Bay, while situated in a tiny market, is a marquee franchise. The Packers are constantly on national television. While Miami and Green Bay are complete opposite cities with vastly different climates, playing for the Packers will help Taylor with his desired "Q" rating as he moves into acting and dancing fulltime.
I think Taylor will play two more years, including 2008. If Thompson can get insurances from Taylor that he'll play past this year, I'd give up a second-round pick for a player that will help you win games on defense in the post Brett Favre era and solidify you as division favorites and a Super Bowl contender.
