Jason Taylor doesn't report, yet

Postby joejlitz » Mon Apr 12, 2010 6:02 am

* The agent for Miami Dolphins linebacker Jason Taylor said his client will not make a decision about whether or not to join the New York Jets until midweek at the earliest, according to a report.

"It's not even about a contract," Gary Wichard told ESPNNewYork.com. "It's about Jason making the decision with his wife to move up to New York and play. When that's decided he'll have an opportunity to move forward in one direction or another."

The report noted that Taylor has clashed with Jets fans in the past. At one point, he said they took the "cl" out of class.

Last Wednesday, Taylor arrived at Jets headquarters in Florham Park, N.J., and met with head coach Rex Ryan. On Thursday, he met some of the players before heading back to his home in Weston, Fla., to think it over.

At least one published report has said that a deal between Taylor and the Jets is forthcoming, but Wichard said that is not the case.

I guess Wichard didn't want to show his cards at the time, but it looks like the NYJ finally worked something out. 2 years. $13 million. And Rex Ryan keeps adding veterans...

Free-agent linebacker Jason Taylor agreed to a contract with the New York Jets on Tuesday, another bold move that bolsters the NFL's top-ranked defense and takes a fierce pass rusher away from the AFC East rival Miami Dolphins.

Taylor will receive a two-year, $13 million deal, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL.com senior writer Steve Wyche. Realistically, however, it's a one-year deal with heavy incentives and guarantees Taylor $2.5 million with a maximum of $3.75 million, the source said.

Taylor's agent, Gary Wichard, told the Miami Herald that the linebacker is tentatively scheduled to fly to New York on Wednesday and sign the contract.
