    This was a great deal for the Skins. An approximate 50th overall pick for a great character, durable, 18 months removed from Defensive Player of Year, who is looking to make Parcells look like a fool (he’s motivated), full running motor, turnover creating (ok, this has become a run on sentence). Jason’s age is overblown. He’s not a running back; plenty of great DE’s play well in their thirties e.g. Bruce Smith, Reggie White, Michael Strahan, etc. Also, Andre Carter is coming off a strong year and is only getting better (I hope) and should aleviate the double teams. I’m an obvious Redskins fan and optimist, but I truly believe this will pay off ala Randy Moss

    jason, I agree. I would even argue that the Redskins came out ahead, considering their situation at RDE. I also agree that great dl players easily play well in their mid-thirties and can be great situational players into their late thirties. Jason Taylor is athletic and stays in great condition year round – meaning he is a youthful 33. How long he stays depends upon him. If he adapts to RDE with the Redskins (with some swapping with Carter at times), playes well, the Redskins go into playoffs, I would think his outlook about playing will be positive vs. what he had to look forward to in Miami.

    His statistics bear out his worth. The only downside is his run stopping play is not great, so that will put pressure on OLB and CB occassionally.

    I have just one thing to say – Jason Taylor is a Washington Redskin!

    Jason may be getting a little long in the tooth, but he’s avoided significant injuries for a majority of his career. He can play as long as he wants. If we can get 2-3 years out of him? Wowzo.
