Miami Dolphins' Jason Taylor puts decision on hold
With his future still in flux and a decision still not made, Miami Dolphins linebacker Jason Taylor will put the stress on the backburner for the next several days as he retreats with his family for a prearranged vacation, sources told The Miami Herald.
Taylor is leaving the country Thursday. He does not plan to make a decision about his future (whether to sign with the Jets or wait on the Dolphins) until after his return, sources said Thursday.
The Dolphins, meanwhile, are not making any more of a push toward retaining Taylor. They are maintaining their stance that he must wait until after next weekend's draft, when Miami could add an outside linebacker, if he wants to stick around.
Team sources said the Dolphins were unable to conduct a previously scheduled private meeting between Taylor and coach Tony Sparano as a result of the organization's own decision to hold off on the meeting. A reason for the cancellation was not provided.
The team's decision to call off the meeting isn't likely going to sit well with Taylor, who already was frustrated by the lack of communication between he and the Dolphins. Still, despite those frustrations, Taylor had not yet committed to the Jets.
Taylor's increased aggravation with the lack of communication is making him more comfortable with the prospect of leaving South Florida. Regardless, even with his agent's continued push to get him to leave Miami for the Jets, Taylor has not yet wanted to pull the trigger himself, sources said.
