I think the Trifecta is just putting the whole Jason Taylor thing off until after the draft. If we take a pass rusher in the first round then it would make JT less of a need. No matter what happens however, I think we're going to sign him after the draft to a sweetheart deal like we did last year. His experience is just too valuable, and he would make a great mentor to a young OLB. That and I've just got a hunch Taylor really wants to avoid playing for the Jets. He only cost us about $1M last season, and I think the Jets are only offering $3M over two seasons, so I don't think money will be the deciding factor here. You can say what you want, I think Taylor stays a Dolphin for at least one more year.
Welcome back to the boards, wkloiber!
I'm in total agreement with what you said. Whether we draft somebody early on or not is irrelevant. Miami needs JT.
Good to be back Dolfan brother. It's been a while but I'm already seeing familiar names. I agree with you totally, we need JT and he needs us. I think we're just waiting to draft our rookies, then figure the whole Taylor thing out before or sometime during training camp. I think many sports writers are not taking into consideration that Jason Taylor might not want to completely participate in training camp. At his age, and with all of his experience, I think training camp isn't a big deal for him like it would be some of the rookies. He's kind of like a Brett Favre, you sign him late, let him get a little action in pre-season, then watch blow plays up all season long.
