  • Jason Taylor on Trading Block

    According to ESPN's "Truth and Rumors", the Dolphins should be looking to trade Jason Taylor for at least a 1st rounder before the Oct 14th trade deadline. Possible suitors include the Broncos, Colts, Seahawks, Cowboys, or the Patriots. My question is why should they try and trade him away when he's their best player.

    Ps. don't flame me if this is a stupid question.

    I like only two teams, the Steelers, and whoever beats the Patriots.

        He is 32 so it may be though getting a 1st round pick but he is amazing.

        thanks Bengals1690

          I kind of remember hearing something about him retiring after the season, but I could be wrong.

            I would trade a first round pick for Taylor in a heartbeat. I think first round picks, in general are overrated in trades, and Taylor is the reigning defensive player of the year, so obviously he isnt falling off. And if the Pats get him everyone should just quit.

              Wasn't Chris Chambers on the trading block a little while ago? I'd hate to be a Dolphins fan these days.

                  I think the Dolphins have passed the Lions as the worst run franchise in the NFL.

                    "And if the Pats get him everyone should just quit."

                    Why would anyone be threatened by a DE weighing 255 lbs in a 3-4 deffense? They clearly dont need another OLB so that is ruled out.

                    If im an OLmen, I dont care if it is Jason Taylor, I know he isnt going to take up blockers and would easily get ate up in the run game. Also 3-4 DE's arent used as pass rushers compared to 4-3 DE's so he would have absolutely zero strengths at the position.

                    For this same reason you can rule out Dallas.

                      I'm sure this is just an unsubstantiated rumour. I can't justify why the Dolphins would want to get rid of such a versatile and dominant defensive force.

                        Booger McFarland got a 2nd rounder, so while I wouldn't give up a 1st for Taylor, a team on the verge of making a move that needs a pass rusher potentially could.


                        Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                          They wouldn't use him at DE. They need another OLB much more than another DE. Jarvis Green would start on more than half of the teams that run a 3-4 in the league, and he's their 3rd DE.

                            Its obvious they need another 1st rounder to screw up and make a huge reach with.

                              I'd consider trading a few picks for him... but not a 1st. A Cover 2 DLine of Taylor-Rogers-Redding-White? Worth it.

                              Tha'd be fun.

                              Note: this isn't a bad idea for the Dolphins. Their obviously not contending for a championship this year, and Taylor isn't get younger (and his stock wont get any higher than it is now). Trade him and continue to build your team.

                              Ted Ginn Jr can't re-enter the draft, right? Hmm... what are some of the elite KR/PR prospects of next draft?

                              Imagine Ginn AND another elite, 1st round KR?! Their special teams would be AMAZING! Sorry, Bears... the Fins would be the best in the NFL.
