Say "Hello" to the bad guy


Say
Apr. 30, 2009 (Sun Sentinel delivered by Newstex ) --


There's only so much lobbying one former Miami Dolphins great can do. Jason Taylor has his pride you know.

But maybe that's it. Taylor has too much pride to beg the Dolphins' decision-makers to take him back, make an offer. Maybe Bill Parcells is waiting for?the dancer?to publicly say "I'm sorry" for last season's battle of wills and egos before the Trifecta will?seriously consider?Taylor's return.

The "acorn," as General Manager Jeff Ireland often calls Taylor, is acting like an undrafted rookie free agent trying to return to the tree that made him great. But the Dolphins have hinted that the six-time Pro Bowler, and former (or present) pass rushing demon, might be a progress stopper for some of the team's up-and-coming young players.

Who in the world can they be referring to, especially since the Dolphins didn't address the shortage of pass rushers in the draft? Cameron Wake? Matt Roth? Charlie Anderson? Erik Walden or Quentin Moses? Taylor's trumped what any of those?outside linebackers?have done in their entire NFL career in one season. And it's not like they can't learned from an accomplished quarterback hunter like Taylor. Would the Dolphins prefer Taylor go teach New England's players his technique and mental approach.

In my opinion Taylor would fit in nicely as the Dolphins pass rushing right end in the nickel and dime package. But him and Porter on the same side of the defensive going after the quarterback and one of them will get a one-on-one match-up they'll beat a couple of times her game.

But, can?the 34-year-old?still do it, injecting fear into the Tom Brady's of the world?

Do the Dolphins need him? And does signing?Taylor get this team ANY closer to remaining the AFC East crown again, possibly pushing to become a participant in the Super Bowl game Miami is hosting in 2010?

I say yes to all those questions, and think it's worth offering?JT an incentive laden deal that's the equivalent of a one-season tryout. If the Dolphins don't like what they see from Taylor, or feel his attitude or influence doesn't mesh with what they're doing then cut him, and move on.

But I suspect Parcells would rather have the situation resolve itself?ignoring?Taylor until he signs elsewhere, just so he won't look like the bad guy again.

Isn't it funny how one player, who happens to possess the one ingredient the Dolphins needs,?keeps putting him in this uncomfortable position?
