The Patriots are looking for someone to get to the quarterback in 2010, and the big rumor is that they will go hard after the Panthers Julius Peppers. Another name on the list though is that of the Dolphins Jason Taylor, but the Boston Herald reports that it appears that Taylor is not going to be available:
Ian Rapoport of The Boston Herald reports the Patriots list of potential pass-rushers to acquire starts with Panthers Pro Bowler Julius Peppers, then continues to include a whole slew of soon-to-be drafted players, somewhere in the middle, maybe, is Dolphins linebacker Jason Taylor. Coach Bill Belichick has not been shy about his love for Taylor but life just got a little difficult for the former NFL defensive MVP and Dancing with the Stars winner. According to a report in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Taylor just underwent shoulder surgery that will keep him out for three months which it means it’ll be the middle of May before he could actually work out for teams.
