Default Jason Taylor re-signs with Dolphins

Good for Miami and good for Jason. Always good to see a player finish where they started.

Quote:
Jason Taylor danced with the stars more than a year ago, but he sacrificed more than $7 million this year to stay close to his family and play football in Miami.

Taylor agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million deal Wednesday with the Miami Dolphins. The move allows him to stay at his Miami home with his wife and three children. It also allows him to rejoin an organization he considers to be an extended part of his family.

There are $400,000 of additional incentives in the agreement, which Taylor and his agent, Gary Wichard, confirmed was reached Wednesday.

The new deal is $7 million less than what Taylor could have earned this year with the Washington Redskins. On March 2, Taylor walked away from the $8.5 million he was scheduled to make from the Redskins when he refused to spend the offseason at Redskins Park, preferring to spend the offseason with his family.

"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. "I was presented with a number of different opportunities, but in the end the combination of this being the best situation for my family, my love for this community and my tremendous loyalty to a great organization made this an easy decision."

So it isn't always about the money?

I'll bet the phone call between him and the big Tuna was weird.

Boy that is casting it in a best and dubious light. Jason Taylor refused to restructure his contract and refused to show up for off-season voluntary activities so the Redskins cut him. He didn't voluntarily walk away from $7 mil at all.

Signing Jason Taylor for 1 million bucks is a very good deal for the Dolphins. It seems like the AFC East is getting more difficult by the day
