J. Taylor will retire after playing one more game (US Presswire).

By Josh Katzowitz

As we told you late Tuesday night, the Miami Herald reported Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor was retiring. We just weren’t sure of the exact reason. On Wednesday, Taylor let everybody in on his little secret.

"This organization in the near future is going to make some changes and part of those changes is needing to address some personnel positions and this is the right time for me to go ahead and go and allow this organization to grow and improve,” Taylor said, according to the Miami Herald.

So, basically, Taylor knew it was time to walk away from the game rather than being pushed out. Rather than possibly suffering the indignity of the Dolphins declining to keep him around, he made his own call to leave (really, isn’t that what so many athletes want, anyway?). Besides, in the eyes of’s Mike Freeman, Taylor is a future Hall of Famer anyway.

The fact Taylor will be 38 before next season obviously played a role, though he still remains a serviceable pass rusher (he’s got seven sacks on the season, after all). Maybe if he thought the Dolphins had a legit chance at competing for a Super Bowl next season, he could be tempted to try to return for one more year. Because the fact he didn’t win a title for Miami is one of his biggest regrets.

“There's a lot of by-products that come with playing the game -- the fame, the money," he said. “But at the end of the day, we all want to win. And, unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to do that. As my career comes to an end that's one thing that like so many other great players, I haven't had a chance to do that. That's my one regret.”

Oh, and by the way, there’s no chance he’ll return. Or so Taylor says.

"Look, Sunday is my last game," Taylor said. "I'm going to go ahead and walk away -- hopefully healthy ... I'm not even going to leave the door open for any of that stuff. As a matter of fact, I might even change my cell phone number so they can't get me."

But one thing, perhaps more than any other, that teammate Jared Odrick will miss about Taylor is how, via Rapid Reporter Chris Perkins, he kept the team’s spirit caffeinated and ready to play.

“He,” Odrick said, “taught me how to make a great latte with his machine over here.”

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 ? 

Keep your hate spewing to yourself - no one here needs or cares about your narrow & petty views & opinions

"YOUR" people ???  Does this mean you're a "CLASSY" wife beating thug ?  OR just a wife beating thug in general ?
