In a day and time of big money, big cars, and huge contracts, JT is has the most class, deire, and heart I think I have ever witnessed for an NFL player. What can you say, to support a team and lose 7 million, that fires me up, and I think once again we actually have a chance to beat NE twice in one year, NE has never hardly been able to solve the JT to Brady's head connection. :) I like it alot.

nice story, Jason is a class act. He'll act as the mentor and leader that Vonnie Holliday was last year. A young team needs a few vets to show them the ropes.

Im happy hes back too BUT... He left his family after almost getting divorced - how old are his kids? Im betting the wife threw down some rules on him after he was a major butt to her when his head got big (bigger) and then he got his reality check; and handed back the other check.

Nice article Dave. The greatest respect goes out to Jason Taylor for accepting a low contract and insisting to come back and play at home. If any of you had bad feelings toward him for leaving then you have to admit that this makes up for it.

Finally, a stand-up guy does a stand-up thing for a team I love. I've always said that parity may be good for the league but it sucks for fans. We don't love our team because of geography - we merely LIKE the team for that. No, we LOVE our team because of the guys who pour their sweat, blood and tears into trying to be a winner year after year. So, now we have a bunch of new guys, most of whom we haven't grown to love yet. But Jason, well, we love Jason - he's our last link to the Marino days, and he bleeds aqua and orange

I wonder if Jason Taylor will make the team. There are lot of rookies this year. At most, he will be a situational pass rusher, but, his leadership and mentoring of the rookies is probably the reason he's being brought in.

WOW! That's amazing, an athlete with true love and passion for the game.
Respect Jason Taylor.
I believe this is the season Jason Tayor get that RING. No one thought the Dolphins would win 11 games last season. I believe this is the season the Miami Dolphins makes it happen.
I hope he pass on some of that love and passion to the rest of the team.
It's all about the RING (love and passion).

I love it.
I love this team.
Go Phins.

It's all about the RING, 35 years and counting.

Just how long does it take a team to rebuild?
