Taylor might be getting old (relatively speaking when it comes to the NFL - the guy is only 34 for Christ's sake!), but any NFL coach would rather have him on their defensive line rather than on the opposing end. The next question is, what is the probability that he will return to Miami as opposed to heading north towards New England?
I'd say there's a 51% chance he comes to Miami, leaving a 49% chance he ends up in New England, just because it's a toss-up with a very slight advantage for Miami.
Taylor definitely would like to win a championship before he retires, but he doesn't want to end up selling his soul to the Pats like Junior Seau did. On the other hand, he can fit well with Miami and only add on to their success. The comfort level is there on South Beach.
What remains is his final choice - "Should I stay or should I go?" Here's some insight JT: Miami forgives you for your Dancing With the Stars dilemma and is willing to accept you. Now is Bill Parcells forgives you...that's a different story. You might have to apologize to the Big Tuna when it's all said and done.
