    Default Redskins get Jason Taylor from Dolphins

    Jason Taylor is leaving the only NFL team he’s known, going from the Miami Dolphins to the Washington Redskins in a trade Sunday.

    The Redskins gave the Dolphins a second-round pick in 2009 and a sixth-round choice in 2010 for Taylor.

    The six-time Pro Bowl defensive end—who was the 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year—fell out of favor in Miami after spending his offseason on the TV show “Dancing With the Stars” rather than working out with teammates.

    The deal came about nine hours after starting defensive end Phillip Daniels was carted away from the practice field at Redskins Park with a season-ending left knee injury on Day 1 of training camp.

    It also came only about 1 1/2 hours after Washington executive vice president Vinny Cerrato told reporters: “We haven’t talked to anybody about anything.”

    Cerrato said Taylor is expected to report to training camp on Monday.

    “We’re fortunate there was a guy that caliber on the market when somebody got hurt,” Cerrato said. “Normally, in most years, there’s not a guy of that caliber on the market.”

    The 33-year-old Taylor has played 11 NFL seasons and he’s started every game each of the past eight years.

    He had 11 sacks during the 2007 season, giving him 117 over his career.

    “His play speaks for itself. I think it’s easy to talk about Jason Taylor. He’s got statistics and everything else to back up everything that he’s done,” Cerrato said.

    Taylor has said he planned to play only one more season.

    But Cerrato said Taylor has two years left on his contract and added: “I’m 100 percent positive he’ll play longer than one year.”

    The Dolphins declined comment even after the Redskins announced the deal.

    “Right now we’re not prepared to confirm that,” Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said.

    That can be a steep price if he only ends up playing one season, but I like the aggressive move. We have needed to do something to help the D-line since 2004

    Taylor still has 2-3 years of very good play left in the tank IMO. He was damn near unstoppable last year and he was doubled every game.

    Good Job Skins one player goes down for the season and they get the best Defensive End available.

    Everytime I see Taylor on the back of his jersey I'll think of Sean.

    Damn... two picks, one of which being a second rounder? For a rental on someone whose career is nearing its end? Don't know how I feel about that, but hey, if it guarantees to make them better immediately, then you can't argue with it.
