The team could use Taylor as a pass-rushing outside linebacker.
New England appears to be stepping up its recruiting efforts, as the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported yesterday that the Patriots have shown a "strong interest" in Taylor.

Despite expectations that Miami would focus on the defense's front seven, Bill Parcells clearly had a different plan.
According to the Miami Herald, this suggests Miami will further entertain the possibility of a reunion with former Dolphins star Jason Taylor. The Dolphins initially planned to evaluate their draft class before thinking more about the possibility, but without any outside linebackers chosen in any of the early rounds, it would seem logical that Taylor will get a harder look.

The Miami Dolphins haven't ruled out re-signing defensive end Jason Taylor, but the interest level doesn't seem high.
According to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, General Manager Jeff Ireland said that the front office has discussed adding the six-time Pro Bowler, but Taylor's age, recent injuries and declining play are factors.
The Dolphins have worked to get the roster younger the past two seasons, and Ireland indicated that signing Taylor would stray from that blueprint.

Taylor's salary, age and tendency to get injured prompted the move, but according to the Tampa Tribune this might end up being great news for Buc fans.
Newly hired defensive coordinator Jim Bates coached Taylor in Miami and loves him. Tampa Bay also needs a great pass rusher who can mold Gaines Adams.

According to the Washington Post, coach Jim Zorn stated that defensive end Jason Taylor (calf) and cornerback Shawn Springs (calf) will miss Monday's game against Pittsburgh. He does expect running back Clinton Portis (hip, ankle) to play.
Taylor is battling swelling and also had a strep infection.
Zorn said that Springs's strain was fairly severe and an MRI exam confirmed as much. Springs is out through the bye week but hopes to play Nov. 16 against Dallas.
