According to the latest reports, it appears the Miami Dolphins no longer want any part of defensive end Jason Taylor's suggestive dance moves or his football abilities ever again.
This is what Dolphins' coach Tony Sparano had to say about Taylor's prolonged absenteeism and palpable indiference toward the team:
"I'm glad we know this. We've gotten the information, and that's important. I know that Jason is not going to be in any minicamps, and I know that right now Jason is not going to be at training camp. So that's what we know. Jason's a player under contract with the Miami Dolphins. He knows that. Both parties are well aware of the information. That's all I'm going to say about it. ... We need to discuss the current players on our team right now that have been busting their butt for nine weeks here."
Honestly, has Sparano seen those behind-the-scenes workouts the celebrity dancers have to go through? Granted, it aint no blocking sled, but it's not like you can imply that Taylor's been sitting around his house drinking pancake batter and smoking cigarettes. He's been learning how to do handstand-into-horizontal flops.
