When the Dolphins hired Bill Parcells to run the show everybody knew what they were getting. Hard-nosed, big, and tough is what Parcells brings to the table. But where do you draw the line between old fashioned and Hard-nosed, and just downright stupid.
As much as some people may think that’s wrong, it is Taylor’s right to do that. With the exception of an offseason minicamp, offseason workouts are voluntary. In addition, Taylor has earned this right. This is a guy who never has been out of shape in his career. He has played hard and was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2006. I guarantee you right now that Taylor could would until minicamp to step on a field and still be the best player on the entire Miami Dolphins team.
Off the field, Taylor has been everything that Huizenga has asked of players. His Jason Taylor Foundation runs a program that helps teach kids to read and last season, Taylor was named the NFL Man of the Year for his charity work. Even through all of this turmoil and being called out by his new head coach, Taylor has been a professional throughout. You don't see him making a scene and trashing the franchise to get out. Taylor has more than held up his end of the bargain as a member of the Dolphins and coach Sparano and the organization just made a big mistake.
