    Miami's Taylor may like Bolts, but the feeling's not mutual

    By Kevin Acee
    UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

    Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor has passed word through friends that he wants to play for the Chargers.

    It won't happen.

    After months of rumors and theories by fans and even some media about the Chargers' interest in the former Defensive Player of the Year, a report on NFL Network on Thursday gave the speculation an air of legitimacy.

    The Chargers are forbidden from talking about a player under contract, but sources familiar with the thinking of the team's decision-makers have said emphatically that the Chargers have no interest in the Miami Dolphins defensive end and aspiring actor.

    The combination of his age, salary, what is seen as diminishing skills and his perceived lack of commitment to football quashed any interest by the Chargers. According to sources, the Chargers have not discussed a trade for Taylor with the Dolphins or Taylor's agent.

    Taylor, 34, is scheduled to make almost $8 million in 2008. He has upset his current boss, Bill Parcells, by skipping offseason workouts to participate in “Dancing With the Stars.” Taylor finished second to Kristi Yamaguchi this week in the popular television show.

    Taylor reportedly has requested a trade from the Dolphins, though he was quoted this week saying he would like to stay in Miami. Conflicting reports have the Dolphins trying to trade the six-time pro Bowler and taking him off the trading block.

    Taylor said after his “Dancing” stint that he was ready to concentrate on football. But he reportedly is spending this week meeting with Hollywood executives, and Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said Wednesday the team has been informed Taylor will not participate in any of the team's offseason workouts.

    Maybe he feels a SB ring will make him more appealing in Hollywood...

    this guy is one of the most overrated players in the league. he plays well against terrible teams and accumulates a lot of sacks during garbage time when the fins already lost. to quote a dolphins fan that i knew in the past, he isnt worth a six pack of miller high life and a philly blunt. thank you.

    I agree that the Spanos' money could be much better invested in some player besides Taylor... Cro, Rivers, Merriman and McNeill come to mind as possibilities. :tup:
