Jason Taylor's head is obviously too BIG to fit into his football helmet.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is a joke, not a movie 'star'. Everything he's in is crap, and he can't act.

I was on JT's side before this revelation (not showing up to any camps), but now...screw him. The Dolphins have paid him well, and now he spits in their faces ? Tighten the thumb screws.

Maybe they will do a remake of Space Balls ...

Ego, ego, ego to the nth°. I guess that you can forget JT at Miami. I suppose that is what it is all about. The only way to spell ME in football is to make an obomination out of the word TEAM ...

So, it is easy to see that Jason Taylor, who wasn't in shape for last year's start, who led a surly and unproductive defense, who was the star prima donna, has just let demonstrated that "Without me, there is no t_a_."

Thanks Jason. We will hold you in our memories ... I just can't wait to see his debut. Well, he can always do Mr. Clean commercials or maybe they will have another one of those Genie movies...

Goodbye Mr. Football.

By the way, how does the 2nd place ring look on your finger?

What a hypocrite this guy is. He was critical of Ricky Williams for "quitting" on the TEAM, and later refused to even talk about Williams because Williams had let down the team.
And now.........?
I've been saying for awhile that Taylor isn't the great guy that the media and majority of fans always made him out to be. You know, comments such as "He gives everything he's got" (he's supposed to - he's paid millions to do so); "Poor, Jason, busting his butt for a losing organization"; blah, blah, blah, etc., etc.
Remember about a year ago when Taylor was portrayed as the victim in a road rage incident in which Taylor was allegedly "attacked" with a sharp "object"? The fact that case was resolved with the defendant pleading to a misdemeanor and receiving a light sentence suggests - strongly - that JT wasn't so "innocent" and that there was a lot more to the story than the public was ever told. That incident was quickly followed by Taylor's wife separating from Taylor and either filing or contemplating filing for divorce. Taylor was surly, critical and openly non-supportive of his coach last year. Say what you want to about Cameron's incompetence, but Taylor was a team leader, and he chose to use that position to undermine his coach. Nice.
Finally, the media, enamored of Taylor, pointed out (correctly) that Taylor could do as he pleased during the off season, including participating in that moronic "Dancing With the Stars" thing. But now we learn that Taylor isn't participating in any activities with the Dolphins, including the mandatory training camp this summer, and, likely, the season. Why? We're told that Taylor is trying to force a trade to a "contender". Yea, this guy's a real class act.

LET HIM GO! IT WOULD BE HARD TO EXPERIENCE, AS AN ATHLETE, WHAT THE LAST 2 SEASONS, HAVE BEEN LIKE IN MIAMI, REALLY 3. AS AN OUTSTANDING ATHLETE & A WELL RESPECTED ATHLETE, IN THAT POSITION, YOU MUST, SET THE EXAMPLE, AND THAT DOLFANS, HE DID NOT! I HAVE WITNESSED AT FIRST HAND, WHAT JASON TAYLOR IS REALLY LIKE, SURE HE PLAYS THE (B.S.) ROLE IN PUBLIC, BUT I HAVE SEEN THE REAL JASON TAYLOR, JASON, IS ALL ABOUT JASON. HAPPY TRAILS, PAL. WHAT A SHAME THAT WE LOST A TRUE DEAR PLAYER, FRIEND, AND LEADER OF THIS TEAM FOR MANY YEARS...ZACH THOMAS, YOU WILL BE DEEPLY MISSED!

Jason Taylor has been a class act most of the time. Like when he gave the game ball that he recovered after making Payton Manning fumble to end a game in Indy in 2000 to my son Colton. We were standing there talking to Zach Thomas after the game and he walked up, reached over the railing and game him the ball. He autographed it 2 years later at the training camp they had at Disney. But, the way he has handled this deal with the Dancing thing has been disrespectful. I know he signed before new coaches were hired etc. But you have a job that's going to pay you 17 Mill over the next couple years, you stay committed to it. Besides, the Miami Dophins provided you the opportunity in the first place. He has made a hell of alot of money and to be honest he hasn't won anything here. Maybe he should show some confidence in BP, you never know what could happen in the next 2 years here. Maybe ZT being released has something to do with this and he's done with the MD. But even Zach says once a Dolphin always a Dolphin. Maybe JT is just a bit too sensitive now.

So now the "Rock" is a movie "star"? What does that make Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, and Harrison Ford, movie Gods? Only in America can a guy who has been in so many crappy movies be considered a star. Yes Braveheart, Jaws, Star Wars, and Walking Tall are all equally good. ROFLMAO

How can anyone be mad at him for missing a voluntary team practice, if the Fins wanted a mandatory practice than they should call a mandatory practice!

Time to talk about the players that will be on the field in sept ., oct. nov., dec. If twinkletoes is one of them fine . If not so be it . The media is making such a big deal out of this . The Dolphins are not going to the playoffs this year with or without sir taylor . I was hoping he'd return after the dance . Since he wants out , let him retire . Hopefully Quentin Moses will be a diamond in the rough . On with the show . see ya twinkletoes.

Can you be WWE champion without acting ability? Maybe he can introduce JT and Vince.

Taylor should be fined to the max. Then the Dolphins should either trade him to a loser, if possible, or swallow the $8 million, less te $500K bonsus $ according to his coontract. Your realize how man X-NFL players went to Holoywood and just did not make it...BURN JAYSON BURN....Taylor actions and his mouth don't connect......What happened to contractual agreements....?

Most of you guys are total losers!
JT is a class guy and a damn good football player. I hope he does leave Miami so he can play on a decent team.
The Dolphins are a joke and you'll never see this team be back on top.

So long JT. You've earned the respect of players and fans around the league, except miami, where loyalty is just a concept, not a reality.
Zach got suckered into that BS even after he was bounced.
BTW, I HATE the smell of dead fish, but respect football talent no matter what team it's on.
