Jason Taylor set to retire

With 139.5 sacks, active league leader Taylor is sixth on the NFL's career list. The Pennsylvania native trails only Bruce Smith, Reggie White, Kevin Greene, Chris Doleman and Michael Strahan among sack leaders.

Solid career. Good move.

6 isn't THAT many considering he played 15 years. I bet most Hall of Famers made the pro bowl in more than 40% of their seasons.

Look at the sacks. Dent, HOF, 15 years, 4 Probowls

Ya, good call - but I'd say he's probably more of an exception than the rule. Taylor might get in, but I could see him easily not, esp. in the early years of his eligibility.

From Pro Football talk:

Don't expect Jason Taylor to pull a Brett Favre.

Taylor, who announced his retirement on Wednesday, said that no matter who the Dolphins' coach is next year, no one is going to convince him to change his mind and keep playing — and no one could get him to play for any other team next year, either. Taylor says he knows it's time for him to walk away, period.

"Look, Sunday is my last game," Taylor said. "I am going to go ahead and walk away hopefully healthy, get through this next one, this last one, preferably win the game and sail off in the sunset for a while. I'm not going to even leave the door open for that stuff. As a matter of fact, I may change my cell phone number so they can't get me."

Dolphins fans will give Taylor a warm sendoff against the Jets, but Taylor said he thinks the game should be the focus.

"I really want to stress that this is not about me," Taylor said. "This is about this team trying to win one more ballgame. And they'll kick ole 99 out the door and move on to the next one, so I'll find something to do. Might take some time, but I'll find it."

Whatever Taylor finds, we wish him well.
