It’s been widely rumored that Jason Taylor (“J.T.”) is interested in rejoining the Miami Dolphins this season now that he’s officially parted ways with our hated divisional rival “J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets” – yuck! Just thinking of the chant turns my stomach, as does seeing him in puke green.
Anyway, let’s analyze this for a moment. An aging J.T. back with Miami to finish his career. Would this help or hinder our beloved Dolphins? His production level was at its second lowest point over his 15 year career last season (36 Tackles,5 Sacks, 2 FF), but he was used mostly as a “situational pass rusher.”
Couldn’t Miami use him the same way this year? I’d say a resounding yes! Welcoming J.T. back with open arms, with a minimal 2 year contract, would be a prudent move. Why? Simple, we gain a knowledgeable and talented veteran player that should come relatively cheaply; he’s good for at least 5 Sacks and a couple of turnovers at least, playing opposite to Cameron “Earthquake” Wake, and he possesses inside intel on the Jets!
Furthermore, J.T.’s Hall of Fame bound when he does call it a career, so mend the fences now before the teary-eyed farewell. Come on Mr. Ireland, you know it’s the right thing to do.
