Default Jason Taylor to Redskins

first the skins lose two DE's for the rest of the year( Phillip Daniels) , now taylor finally leaves miami

After losing defensive end Phillip Daniels for the season, the Washington Redskins moved quickly to fill the void.


The Redskins acquired Jason Taylor from the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins will receive a second-round pick in 2009 and a sixth-rounder in 2010.

The Redskins certainly don't mind foregoing the draft to go after free agents or trades.

But ultimately a good deal...even without the injury to Daniels, JT would've been an upgrade. He's probably only got 2-3 years left, but he still plays at a high level and the Redskins want to win now.

Well, I wonder how he will do as he still has it in him.

Snyder never likes to build through the draft anyway.

It's amazing how it seems almost every time a big name gets traded, the Skins are involved.

I don't know how they think this is going to help them. He's 34 and will not be in the NFL much longer. He just wanted out of Miami because he's sick of the crap over there. Also, he wants a ring. I just don't know how he's going to get one being in Washington.

Good luck.

It wouldn't surprise me if Parcells orchestrated the trade to Washington for that very reason, being the petty and vindictive bastard that he is and has always been.
