Jason Taylor dances his way to Washington

July 20, 2008

Heres the report from Yahoo!


The Redskins gave the Dolphins a second-round pick in 2009 and a sixth-round choice in 2010 for Taylor.

The six-time Pro Bowl defensive end—who was the 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year—fell out of favor in Miami after spending his offseason on the TV show “Dancing With the Stars” rather than working out with teammates.

The deal came about nine hours after starting defensive end Phillip Daniels was carted away from the practice field at Redskins Park with a season-ending left knee injury on Day 1 of training camp.

It also came only about 1 1/2 hours after Washington executive vice president Vinny Cerrato told reporters: “We haven’t talked to anybody about anything.”

Cerrato said Taylor is expected to report to training camp on Monday.

“We’re fortunate there was a guy that caliber on the market when somebody got hurt,” Cerrato said. “Normally, in most years, there’s not a guy of that caliber on the market.”
More on the trade after the jump


At first this seems like the old Daniel Snyder coming out, trading picks away like they are baseball cards for veterans. But Jason Taylor is in the best shape of his life, and without the injury to Philip Daniels this probably would not have happened. This is a fantastic trade for the Redskins and now they will have a great player up front, to put pressure on the QB and help out their thin secondary. This also means it will be just a matter of time before he appears in an Eastern Motors commercial. For those of you who are unlucky and don't know what Eastern Motors is, heres a clip.



FYI, Cooley will be joining the Eastern Motors team this upcoming season.
