    If that's true, that's pretty messed up. If you wanted to chase money just admit it, it would be a lot more honorable than trying to get the fans up in arms because the FO didn't give you the money you thought you deserved for a single digit sack season being in for over 800 plays.

    Who knows?

    Both sides have an incentive to lie at this point. Just let it be bygones. JT did what he had to do, same as the team.

    We can laugh about it a few years from now

    Man that would be hilarious if the Jets did not make the playoffs and we did. Same as the last time he cut bait and ran to the skins. If that happens I am all fo him wearing a Patriots uniform the following year. There seems to be a pattern.

    If this is true, that sure does change much of the perspective that many people on here were having towards the situation. Much of their argument was based on the fact that the FO had no communication with JT, gave any indication of their plans for him, or was basically out to screw JT's agent. If indeed an offer was made and JT flat out refused for whatever reason (as reported in another thread, he was primarily out for more money), that argument is no longer valid.

    JT said he was offered a 1.5 mill contract right after the regular season, but didnt accept it because he wanted to see in FA and since it was an uncapped year he thought we might up the offer, but in December miami took the offer off the board and never put it back up

    That's not what irony means. First he signs with the Jets and then he doesn't understand what irony is. He is officially dead to me.

    I've said it before, I'll say it again.

    He's a prima donna who vanished in the biggest game situations. Everyone seems to feel the love for him, but for some reason I never did.

    And for him to say that deep down "he really liked Jet fans" just shows what a disingenuous tool he really is.

    Good riddance.

    taylor lied to the Dolphins before and now he has lied to the fan base in attempt to get them angry at the FO.
    i've been trying to tell everyone about this guy since I've been here and I took major heat for it. He is a drama queen.
    where are all the player fans at now? not here to defend this jackass huh?

    i love how everyone raved about what a great season he had last year yet the article clearly states he was on the field for 800 plays with only 30 tackles. that is pathetic.

    jason taylor is washed up on the field and a liar off the field.

    So basically he sold out for 500K?!?!?!?!?......All the great plays he made, trash talking, all the games won, playoff games, heartbreaking losses, and thrilling wins he shared with Miami. It was worth an extra 500 grand to absolutely be the biggest Benedict Arnold in football......??

    I saw this clown for what he was 2 years when he did Sambas on a dance floor instead of being the leader we needed by being at OTA's and mini-camps. Some people fail to remember he blew off the organization, and NEVER gave Sparano or Parcells even a chance. He demanded a trade. At that point I saw him for what he really was, and it was never as a TRUE Miami Dolphin. He is a 2 faced money wh*re, and there is no way to sugarcoat it.

    Another thing, he really doesn't have too much regard for Dolphins fans if he believes that he will be welcomed back for a Ring of Honor or HoF ceremony, he has another thing coming.

    So just remember that, those that support him, he doesn't really care about you, or his Dolphins legacy.

    the first thing that set me off about taylor was when he said in 2007 that he would trade all of his team mates for tom brady. i immediately said eff him but when he lied to the team and said he would be back after the show and went to hollywood instead that was what did it. he was supposed to be a leader on this team and his words and actions pointed to him being a liar. and here he is in 2010 back to OLD dramatic self. he deserves to be a jet. its a great fit.

    Woooow. I love the part how we asked him to get shoulder surgery immediately so we could evaluate him and he decides to wait for a month to do it.

    And that was after we already made him an offer.

    Unreal.

    I just dont get how you can look at yourself at the end of the day, in the mirror, and be content..... and JT supporters come with something else than the money and family security, that is such a load of BS......like I said before this isnt a private sector 40K a year job, where you can go to rival business cuz they gave you 50K, thats laughable, this is sports, where people get paid 2.5 million bucks to be a rotational football player...not 45K to feed a family of 4.....What is a man who sells out himself for nothing?? A dangerous one....

    Whateva this is the last time I post on this thread, the draft is here, time to move forward, and get a real good young OLB.....

    I wish Jason Taylor bad luck in his future endeavors.....

    Let it be already. He's a jest now. He gave us some great memories over the years. He and Zach could always be counted on when the offense sputtered. Just let it be. The draft will be here in a few hours and we'll have a new defender to replace him.

    I'm inclined to believe the FO did in fact make him an offer (after the extension they offered and he declined last November). Assuming that's true, then he not only was playing games to try and get every last nickle he thought he could get (damn the consequences), he's also lying about it now.

    Good riddens Jason Taylor. I'm glad you're a Jest now. You're gonna hate it when they start booing you due to poor play, and I'm gonna laugh my a** off!

    And yet you are convinced that what an "unnamed source," possibly trying to give the front office cover, says MUST be true.

    sigh. I promised myself not to be sucked into this silliness.

    Backing away.

    Fully agree. JT wants to play and if the Dolphins didn't offer him what he thought was fair, then JT needed to do what's best for him. I hate the fact that he went to the damn JEST, but I also remember that Thurman Thomas came from Buffalo to us.

    Exactly...and I'd also "bet" that there were other teams interested in Jason Taylor, he chose the Jets because he believed they were the closest team to the SB.

    This is a time for celebration of the Draft, but my goodness my fellow phinfans, isn't it obvious Taylor was shaping things to put himself into the best light possible?

    It wasn't the 500k FY...think about it...the Jest were in the AFC Championship Game, one half of football away from the Super Bowl..and Rexxy does know how to run a defense to allow him clean shots at the QB..and he will be on Hard Knocks..

    I'm not sure who is in more jeopardy, a NFL qb facing the Jest, or a teammate in between Taylor and a HBO camera crew.

    To be honest, I believe Taylor/Wichard over the Dolphins.

    It's not like the Dolphins didn't give JT the same icy treatment the previous two offseasons.

    None other than Zach Thomas has taken the organization to task for the way it has handled this, and deals with star players publicly.

    It wasn't Taylor's side that leaked the scheduled secret meeting with Sparano a few weeks ago. It wasn't Taylor's side that leaked the contract offer in 2009. Taylor didn't say ANYTHING the entire offseason, other than he wanted to be a Dolphin.

    The front office is leaking this stuff to cover their *** with the fans after the fact. Just like the they leaked the stuff about Ryan Clark after the fact.

    I'm calling BS on this contract offer. And I'm calling BS on the stuff about "he played 800 plays, didn't do much" critique from the same 'unnamed source'.

    You signed him to be a 35-year old situational pass rusher. But he ends up starting 16 games on the strongside. And you pulled him out on third down.

    I support this team to the end. But they aren't above reproach here.

    over there
    JT went dancin' with the stars when Parcells watched.
    JT was offered the 1 year contract to sign with us out of respect(then need) from Parcells.
    JT left us for big money after the 1-15 season when we needed him most.
    JT was offered an extension last November.Don't know the details but rumor has it that JT nixed it? Not sure.....some say the FO pulled the offer off the table? Why would they do that? You don't offer contracts in Nov. unless you want to keep that said person.
    It all sounds fishy,Mr. JT.
