JT Coming Back

Jason Taylor said a couple of weeks ago at Alonzo Mourning's charity golf tournament he was open to the idea of returning to the Dolphins, and it's going to happen. Taylor made the announcement on his Facebook Monday that he would be playing in 2011 for the Dolphins.

Here is the post of the Jason Taylor Foundation Facebook page:

"We are very excited to share with all of you that Jason has made his decision regarding where he is playing for the upcoming 2011 season. Jason is coming home to Miami and will once again proudly wear the aqua and orange! He hasn't told anyone yet, so let's just keep this between us! Shhh!"

The Dolphins are off tomorrow, so we won't hear from Coach Tony Sparano or Taylor on the subject until Wednesday.

Taylor spent last season as mostly a backup with the Jets, and one would imagine his role with the Dolphins in 2011 would be as a situational pass rusher opposite Cameron Wake.

While he perhaps isn't the player he once was, Taylor clearly represents an upgrade as a pass rusher over Koa Misi or any other outside linebacker on the roster other than Wake.

In that vein, it's a good move for the Dolphins for more than just the nostalgic value.

Taylor will be the third veteran addition in the last two days, following nose tackle Ronald Fields and offensive tackle Marc Colombo.

The next to follow very well could be former Giants Pro Bowl center Shaun O'Hara, who visited with the team on Monday.
