J. Taylor reportedly will retire after Miami's final 2011 regular-season game (US Presswire).By Josh Katzowitz

According to a report late Tuesday night in the Miami Herald, the 233rd game of Jason Taylor’s career also will be his last. That’s because the longtime standout defensive end, after a 15-year career, will retire once the Dolphins season is complete.

While the newspaper reports that there hasn’t been a reason given yet for why Taylor will retire, the fact his body will be 38 years old before next season is probably one major explanation.

While Taylor is no longer a starting-caliber player (he only had one start in Miami’s 15 games this season), he still performs at a relatively high level. He recorded seven sacks this season, more than his totals from 2008 and 2010. For his career, the six-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro  totaled 139.5 sacks, the sixth-best mark in NFL history, and he’s scored more touchdowns (nine) than any other defensive linemen.

More from the Herald:
Taylor has seven sacks this season playing primarily in pass-rushing situations. During a recent conversation, I asked him to respond to the following true/false question:

True or false, you are playing better this season than you did last season despite being one year older:

“True,” Taylor said immediately.

Taylor said he didn’t require surgery or rehabilitation treatment for the first time in several offseasons and credited that with helping him be better conditioned and prepared for the start of 2011.

There has been speculation in the past that Taylor is interested in going into the world of TV analysis. Now, perhaps we’ll get the chance to see if he can talk the talk as well as he could play the game.

Taylor and his coffee-maker set to retire


David XXX Duke -

Where to begin with you ???

1st - turn off the caps lock & scale down the font  - all caps doesnt make your posts anymore important or intelligent !

I'm assuming you're black/african-american (I use both terms because if i don't you'll bast me for not using the right one) & yet -
you seem to be an equal opportunity race offender  

You are using the name of the 20th century's most famous racist as your screenname - you do know that Duke was the Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan ?  & is also a white-seperatist ?

As for your posts - in 3 weeks you've put up 15 posts or so -

In the first 2 you had a "whites are jealous of rich young black men" rant going (hence , my previous assumption)
 
Since then every post you have put up has 2 components - "_____ is a classless wife beating thug" or I hope _____ suffers an  injury" OR "I hope _____ that classless wife beating thug suffers ______ injury" - 

As for the "wife beating thug" references , we could only hope that someone would sue you for libel -
(like Jay Cutler who's single & therefore can't be a "wife beating thug")

libel. 1) n. to publish in print (including pictures), writing or broadcast through radio, television or film, an untruth about another which will do harm to that person ...
  
As for the injuries - why all the hate ? 
Why or how could you possibly want to see or have someone suffer such pain from these injuries ? 
Were you abused as a child ? 
Did you abuse & torture animals & liked it ?
Should the authorities be investigating you ? Possibly starting by digging up your basement or under a crawlspace ?

We can only hope YOU suffer an injury that leaves you unable to type ! 
No need for you to break both wrists or hands - Carpal tunnel would suffice ! (as would someone stealing your keyboard)

For everyone else - here's a synopsis of DXD's posts - so you all can know what he's about -

(abbreviations for following list)
WBT - wife beating thug
SEI - season ending injury
BRP - bad representative of "DXD's" people

Mike Conley - WBT , SEI , BRP
Russell Westbrook - WBT , SEI , BRP
Jason Taylor - WBT (2x)
Jay Cutler - WBT & SEI (2x)
Matt Forte - WBT , SEI 
Kevin kolb - SEI
Drew Brees - WBT & New Orleans is a fithy city
Jerome Harrison - WBT
Big Ben - SEI , SEI & rapist (2x) & 1 post deleted
Maurkice Pouncey - SEI & Gay slurs

So really - What's with all the hate you spew ?  Is your life so bad that this is how you make yourself feel better ? 

DXD - PLEASE DO US THIS FAVOR -
Keep your hate spewing to yourself - no one here needs or cares about your narrow & petty views & opinions

CBS - PLEASE DO US THIS FAVOR - BAN THIS IDIOT !

I'm not a Dolphins fan (though I always want them to win the AFC East), but this would be a loss for them I think (as in experience), but I totally understand Taylor retiring after 15 years. Hell of a player though

Lifelong Pats fan here and just wish Taylory the best. Without a doubt he is a HOF'er in my eyes and like most said he is a total class act. To davidduke-tool. I never once heard any allegations of him beating his wife. To insaneinthecane-The Dolphins never built a team around him, why should he not go to the Skins or Jets to try and get a better shot at a ring? I dont blame him at all for that. Fact is he just wanted to win.  Like I said I hope for nothing but the best for this guy and thats after years of worrying about him against my favorite team.
