Taylor Coming Back to the Dolphins as a Backup

Jason Taylor is back with the Fins, but according to today’s Miami Herald, he won’t be a starter on the teams defensive, instead, he’ll be used as a role player off the bench. Here’s the tidbit from today’s edition:

First of all, forget about whether Taylor starts or doesn’t start. The idea is not to give Taylor starts. Understand plans can always change given a change in circumstances such as injuries and individual game strategies, but initially the Dolphins plan to use JT as a situational player.

It makes sense, considering Taylor will be 35 on opening day, and was only able to play in 13 games last season for Washington, making 29 tackles. He also 3.5 sacks for minus 30 yards. If he can simply come in and give some support to Joey Porter and other defenders on the club, that will be a big boost.
