Jason Taylor’s agent says he won’t use Jets offer to drive up Fins price

There’s been plenty of chatter about Jason Taylor, and word that he might end up in New York playing for the Jets. According to South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Taylor’s agent says he won’t use the deal he may get from the Jets to run up an offer from the Dolphins:

Late last night, after much of the dust had settled from the revelation Miami Dolphins great Jason Taylor had deigned to visit the reviled New York Jets, Mike Berardino of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel checked in with Taylor’s agent Gary Wichard. “There’s no contract discussions at all,” Wichard wrote. “What the Jets are going to pay has nothing to do with what the Dolphins want to pay. This is all about football and the best fit for Jason and he’ll make that decision when he’s ready.”

One report has the Taylors, Jason and Katina, making that decision after this weekend, but it’s possible this contemplation period could drag on for another week or so and basically, you get the sense the Jets aren’t going to pressure Taylor in any way, although you can imagine they don’t want to have an offer still sitting out there as they enter draft week in another 10 days or so. Nor will Taylor’s camp try to goose the Dolphins into doing anything before they are good and ready. “I won’t use an offer from the Jets to try to secure a contract from the Dolphins,” Wichard added. “That’s not what’s going to make the deal.”
