ESPN has just reported that indeed Taylor likes the Phins over the Pats. He just agreed to terms to become a Dolphin. This is very disappointing.
After not drafting a rush linebacker or an outside linebacker of any kind, I was thinking that Taylor was on his way to becoming a Patriot. I was wrong. Taylor preferred to stay home with his family and prefers losing in the first round of the playoffs rather than having a shot at a championship.
Taylor could have been an immediate impact and a huge boost to the Patriots defense. It will be interesting to see what the Patriots do now. Do they bring Colvin back? Do they let thier young inexperienced OLBs put in thier time?
Crable and Pierre Woods both from Michigan will have to step up thier games. Also newly acquired Tully Banta Cain looks like a much more attractive option for the Pats now. If you remember when he played with the Pats, he had 5.5 sacks in 2006.
Some players do NOT care about championships, I guess you can count Taylor in on those players.
