The feud between Jason Taylor and the Miami
Dolphins is intensifying, with word from new coach Tony Sparano
that the Pro Bowl defensive end isn't expected to take part in any
team activities through training camp.
The revelation comes less than 24 hours after Taylor finished
second to Kristi Yamaguchi in the finals of
"Dancing With the Stars" in Los Angeles. The new Dolphins regime,
led by Bill Parcells, has been fuming while Taylor has been
spending his offseason focused more on a budding Hollywood career
rather than back in South Florida working out with teammates.
In a recent interview, Taylor said he was unhappy he had talked
"probably less than a minute each" with Parcells and new general
manager Jeff Ireland, which he perceived as silent treatment. But
the 33-year-old Taylor said he still plans to play this season.
