    Exclusive: Dolphins to deal Taylor to *****

    The Dolphins will gain two draft picks in trade with San Francisco
    By Travis Rickster - print article
    Published: April 1, 2008
    The Miami Dolphins finally resolved the lingering status of Jason Taylor today, by trading him to the San Francisco ***** for a first and third round pick. The picks (29th and 70th overall) give the Dolphins a smattering of picks in this year's draft. Miami's new Executive Vice President of Football Operations, Bill Parcells, now owns the 1st, 29th, 32nd, 58th, 64th and 70th picks of the NFL draft.

    With an unprecedented number of picks in the first three rounds, the Dolphins are poised to improve on last year's dismal 1-15 record.

    "Jason Taylor represented the Miami Dolphins admirably in his 11 seasons with the club. We wish him the best with his new team," said Parcells in a statement. "We have no animosity towards Jason, we just felt it was time to move on."

    It was no secret that Parcells and Taylor did not envision their futures on the same team. In early March, both sides agreed that it may be best to part ways before the NFL Draft on April 29th.

    While many teams were rumored to be interested in Taylor, including the Jacksonville Jaguars, it seems that the ***** came in at the last minute and offered the Dolphins a deal they could not refuse.

    The ***** were seeking an upgrade to a defense that has not generated much pass rush over the last couple of seasons. With the free agent additions of Justin Smith and now Jason Taylor, the ***** are aiming to provide a jump start to an already improving defense.

    Jason Taylor is currently a participant on Dancing With the Stars, but sources say he will join the team's offseason program at the conclusion of his tenure on the dance competition.

    A heated debate exploded at the annual NFL owners meetings on Monday. The argument was said to involve the potential new rule that would ban long hair on players. Some owners endorse the rule to have players maintain a certain hair length while other owners, who are "anti-bald," want to make it a rule that every player must have hair at least two inches in length. No word from Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck regarding his thoughts on the issue.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell knows an opportunity when he sees one. In a surprising announcement on Monday, Goodell revealed plans for an all-female summer league that would be sponsored by the NFL and could see action as early as 2010. The NFL started investigating the possibility of an all female league after assessing the mass disappointment in the cancellation of this year's Lingerie Bowl. The league would open with eight teams and would be played indoors much like Arena Football. The NFL already has a tentative television deal in place with ESPN, who plans to air the majority of the games on ESPN 8 - The Ocho. The remainder of the games may air during primetime on The CW.

    Owners will vote on a new rule that would move the perfunctory extra-point kick to the 35-yard line. Owners seem to feel that the extra-point is simply too easy with the current rules and that this change would make the game more exciting.

    Agent Drew Rosenhaus plans to address the NFL board to clear the air on the ***** tampering case. According to a private interview with the Chicago Examiner, Rosenhaus' testimony is said to be so overwhelmingly in favor of the ***** that they may be given the Bear's first round draft picks for the remainder of the decade. Goodell plans to fine Rosenhaus a third round draft pick for his statements.


    pretty sure this is an april fools joke, lol
