NO TRADE FOR TAYLOR, YET There are highly unsubstantiated Internet rumors of a trade that would send Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor to the Packers for a second-round pick and a fourth-round pick. Though it's possible that the Fins and the Packers are talking, there's a key component in all of this that hasn't occurred. Specifically, no one has broached the subject with Taylor. And we're convinced that no team would swing a trade for Taylor absent a clear and unequivocal commitment from him that he'd welcome the deal and not retire. Taylor currently is in preparations for the next season of Dancing with the Stars. Unless he pulls a Kenny Mayne, Taylor won't be available for a big chunk of the offseason workouts. So who would want to give up a 2008 draft pick or two for a guy that can be had later for selections in 2009? We're not saying a trade won't happen. In fact, we wouldn't be surprised to learn that Taylor wants out of Miami. But we're convinced that nothing is going to happen in the short term, and we believed that nothing will happen at all until Taylor's time on television ends. Meanwhile, we've got a feeling that anyone who wants Taylor is going to have to pay him. It's the Tommy Kelly effect; if a so-so guy coming off a torn ACL gets $18 million guaranteed, what is a high-end player worth?
