Jason Taylor re-signs with the Miami Dolphins

The 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year returns to the team he played his entire career with, excepting the 2008 season. From the Sun-Sentinel-

Jason Taylor, a six-time Pro Bowler, rejoined the Miami Dolphins today.

Taylor’s agent, Gary Wichard, said the defensive end/linebacker signed a $1.5 million, one-year contract.

Taylor played his first 11 seasons with the Dolphins before being traded to the Washington Redskins. He was released by Washington this offseason after one injury-plagued season.

Taylor had expressed a desire to be closer to his South Florida home.

“My heart has always been in Miami and so I’m truly excited to call myself a Dolphin once again,” Taylor said in a statement.

For a one-year rental of Jason Taylor to the Washington Redskins, Miami got another 2nd round draft choice. The Dolphins spent that on Pat White, and I still think that wasn’t a wise draft choice. Back to Taylor, he is still a good player and should be of help to the Dolphins. I don’t expect Miami to have as much success in 2009 as they did in 2008, mostly because the team faces a far more difficult schedule.
