Jason Taylor officially announced he will retire following Sunday's game against the Jets at a Wednesday evening press conference.

"After 15 years of doing this and 13 here in Miami, unfortunately and fortunately, this will be my last game as a Miami Dolphin." Sunday's game will be the 233rd of Taylor's career, and come against one of the two other teams he played for besides the Dolphins. Of Taylor's 139.5 career sacks, which are good for sixth all time, 131 have come in a Dolphins uniform. A future in T.V. probably awaits the likely future Hall-of-Famer.

Free agent DE/OLB Jason Taylor announced on his Facebook page Monday that he's signing with the Dolphins.

According to the Miami Herald, coach Tony Sparano and GM Jeff Ireland "reached out" to Taylor to soothe over some hard feelings after the Dolphins showed him the door last offseason. The Jets weren't interested in bringing the 37-year-old back, so his options were limited. He'll play a situational pass-rushing role behind Koa Misi.

Appearing on ESPN's NFL Live Monday, free agent Jason Taylor expressed interest in re-signing with the Jets.

"I'd love to come back and play one more year in New York," he said. Taylor turns 37 before the season, and the New York beat writers consider him unlikely to return to the Jets. He won't get much guaranteed money if he does play in 2011, but can still help as a rotational linebacker. Taylor had five sacks and 17 pressures last season, also playing the run well in spots.
