Jason Taylor has a lot of money on the line the next four weeks
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal
December 10, 2010


With the Dolphins and Jets playing this week, it’s an approriate time to look at Jason Taylor’s contributions to the Jets.

While he played fairly well early in the year when Calvin Pace was out, Taylor has mostly been a non-factor since. He only played 15 snaps in last week’s blowout loss to the Patriots. Taylor hasn’t complained about his playing time at all, although Rex Ryan publicly said this week he wants Taylor on the field more.

His lack of production could cost Taylor money. Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com notes that Taylor has four sacks on the season and needs seven to get a guaranteed $750,000 for next season. The guarantee would rise to $1.25 million if he recorded 10 sacks on the year and $2 million with 12 sacks.

It’s looking like Taylor will be one-and-done in New York. Florio reported he’s expected to retire after the season. Taylor just hopes he can write a Michael Strahan-like happy ending in the meantime.

Yeah, except Strahan didn't dance and cry his way to the Eagles to win a championship.

Here’s an interest aspect to observe on Sunday: With one more sack former Dolphins and present Jets linebacker Jason Taylor will tie former NFL greats Lawrence Taylor and Leslie O’Neal for 8th in all-time NFL sacks.
Wouldn’t you hate for him to achieve that feat against the Dolphins?
Rex Ryan says he needs to get Taylor, who leads the Jets in sacks, on the field more. Raise your hand if you think Taylor will be on the field plenty against the Dolphins (hand raised).
“I think he’s doing really well. It’s just that we have to get him out there more. We had a game plan this past week, that never really had him in that much. (We) had him in some certain packages and then we had a couple of safeties go down, and all of a sudden those packages disappeared,” Ryan said. “We have to get Jason in there more, but he’s been a great contributor to our team. He’s closed out games for us with a big sack. He’s a disruptive player, as you guys know. He’s really been a great pickup for us.”
