On NFL network they said dallass is interested in trading for him. Weather they do or not , just have to wait and see.

So the Parcells regime cancells the meeting and anounces that he won't be attending team functions.

This sounds like they don't want him coming around, not that he is not showing up on his own accord.

They don't want him there, he doesn't want to be there....TRADE HIM THEN.

Take the best package you can get from him and then ship him out. Preferably to a contender so he can at least contend for a Super Bowl, something he hasn't had a chance to do in Miami his entire career.

Didn't Miami do the same thing a year ago, when they would not allow Daunte Culpepper to work out at training camp? If I was Taylor's agent, I would advise him to call the Dolphin's bluff and show up for the next workout.

Last that was reported, jason was going to show up. What wasn't known was if miami was going to bar him and if he didn't show up knowing he was banned if he would get fined for a no show. Talk about a rock and a hard place.

Thats the last I heard.

Actually, all reports are that he was going to show up and then the HC of the 'Phins said they don't expect (read: DON'T WANT HIM TO) show up.

It looks more like they are trying to tell him not to show up, he's not welcome. They just don't want to say it, because he's under contract and they cannot ban him from working out with the team. So instead, they are making it look like he's going to be a holdout.

Quote:
He has the polish down. Taylor doesn't want to discuss the alleged tension with Parcells. He could make a public mess and demand to be traded after Parcells allegedly disrespected him with the silent treatment, but what's the point? The fan base might turn on him if he goes the loud trade-me route, and what kind of way is that to punctuate his exceptional Dolphins career? Better to just keep dancing. So what if Parcells is mad? Taylor once knocked Jimmy Johnson's hands off him during a sideline disagreement, and there have only been one, two, three, four, five new bosses since then if you count Jim Bates.

Besides, Parcells doesn't always have the most mature managing style. He once called an injured receiver, Terry Glenn, ''she.'' He refused to address diva Terrell Owens by name, calling him The Player. It might not be long before he goes from giving Taylor the silent treatment to calling him The Dancer.

But, for the record, Taylor has tried swallowing his Hollywood desires for every previous Dolphins coach, and all he has to show for it is six years without a playoff appearance. Wichard says Taylor turned down a part in Ghost Rider, the Nicolas Cage action film, because it was overseas during Nick Saban's offseason regimen. Never mind all the meetings and commercial opportunities ignored under Dave Wannstedt and Cam Cameron. Taylor signed on for Dancing With the Stars on Dec. 11, before Parcells was even hired here.

How could he check on what Parcells wants or didn't want if Parcells wasn't even the boss then?

Asked how his life has changed, Taylor says, ``It has gotten crazy. Crazier. Everything is different. It has been a blast.''

He wore eye black and his partner wore Dolphins colors in their most recent dance to the theme of Monday Night Football. Through force of will and personality, he is going to merge his two worlds whether his boss likes it or not. He punctuated his last dance by making the signals referees make after a score, arms raised in triumph.

Touchdown?

No, Jason Taylor isn't touching down.

He's taking off.
That is at the end of this link.

I'm sorry, but JT has every right to do what he wants in the offseason...be it act or dance. His career as a football player is almost over, he has every right to branch out and start making a name for himself somewhere else so he can have a career beyond football.

A team that is in dissaray with a GM that's a complete pompous ass. He signed on for Dancing before Parcells ever took over. Taylor had no idea that he would have lasted to the finals. He could have been the first voted off the show.

It's been made clear by the Dolphins front office that they do not want Taylor around, therefore he cannot be part of the team.
