Judging by his latest comments, Jason Taylor is happy to be back in Miami. Taylor, back with the Dolphins after one season in Washington, didn’t hide his enthusiasm from The Miami Herald when asked about working with Bill Parcells, coach Tony Sparano and company.
”I don’t think I’ve ever been in a situation where it’s been this seamless,” Taylor told the newspaper Thursday while at the Zo’s Summer Groove Classic at Doral. “Obviously, [Bill] Parcells and [GM Jeff] Ireland and their front office is a big step up from what was here in the past. I know I haven’t played a game for them yet, but I’m ready to run through a brick wall for them.”
A few other notes from Around the Web on Friday:
- Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland had “no comment” when asked about Denny Green’s recent prediction that Michael Vick would end up with the Dolphins.
- Veteran free-agent defensive back Patrick Surtain told the Sun-Sentinel that he’s “waiting on a call” to play next season, and would be willing to line up at cornerback or safety.
- Donovan McNabb will host the Eagles’ receivers, tight ends and running backs next week at his annual pre-training camp workouts in Arizona. The Philadelphia Daily News says most are expected to attend, including first-round pick Jeremy Maclin.
- The Bills plan on getting RB Fred Jackson additional touches next season, according to Buffalobills.com, which could come via a more expanded role in the passing game.
- Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal wants to lease space in an office building in downtown New Orleans as part of a long-term deal to keep the Saints in Louisiana. The state also plans to renovate the Louisiana Superdome to help the Saints generate more money, according to The Advocate.
