    Jason Taylor returned to the Dolphins on Wednesday, a hero who turned down the temptations of more money and grander promises from the New England Patriots and New York Jets. Taylor accepted a bargain-rate contract to play for the Dolphins. Taylor turned down promises of a bigger contract offer from the Patriots and didn't even let the Jets or Packers get deep enough in conversations to talk money.

    DawkinsINT Tebow free since 9/5/2015.

    I totally thought that he would be a Patriot because of the ring possibility. He stuck by what's most important to him. Kudos.

    I give him props. He could've taken the money and a better chance at a ring...

    Family over championship. Can't really blame him for it. but with so much cash you have to ask: if not play for a ring, why play at all

    So the Dolphins basically got a 2nd round for free last year.

    I love it when Danny boy gets hecked in the butt :icon_cheesygrin:

    There is no denying the Redskins got raped.

    However, with JJ's love of ex-crim's, he likes guys with experience of soap on a string. Maybe it's not the plastic surgery that keeps JJ's face looking so "young"?

    The Tuna knows his stuff, props to him.

    How's Roy E Williams doing? Being raped by Matt Millen's understudy (and an ex-Redskin) hardly looks like a thing of beauty for JJ does it?

    Whatever, dude. At least we have SOMETHING for our picks.

    Let's have this conversation in December, shall we? I still have faith in the guy...
