MIAMI (AP) -- Bill Parcells is speaking out, and wants it known
that Jason Taylor has a place with the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins' football operations czar, in one of his first interviews since joining the franchise in December, said Thursday "of course" he wants the six-time Pro Bowl defensive end to be on the field with Miami this fall.
"Why wouldn't you want one of the very best players?" Parcells
said in an interview with The Associated Press during an appearance
at a Gatorade promotional event. Parcells also downplayed widespread reports of a rift between he and Taylor, calling it "a fabrication."
Earlier this week, Taylor said he wants to play one more season,
and has told the Dolphins he would agree to a trade if they wish.
