Pro Bowl for Taylor

Given the Dolphins' 1-13 record, it wouldn't have surprised anyone had they not had a single player selected to the Pro Bowl, but Jason Taylor kept Miami from being shut out.

Taylor was one of the three defensive ends selected to the AFC roster along with Tennessee's Kyle Vanden Bosch and Kansas City's Jared Allen.

The only bad news for Taylor was that he wasn't selected as a starter.

It's the fourth consecutive Pro Bowl selection and sixth overall for Taylor, whose 10 sacks ranks fourth among AFC defensive ends behind Houston's Mario Williams (13), Allen (11.5) and Denver's Elvis Dumervil (11).

Taylor also has four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and one touchdown, a 36-yard interception return against New England.

Taylor also was elected to the Pro Bowl in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006.

Unless a Dolphins player gets added as an injury replacement, the one selection will represent the team's lowest total since 1998 when Tim Bowens was Miami's only Pro Bowl player.
