Dolphins DE Taylor considering retirement

DAVIE, Fla. (Jan. 1, 2007) -- Following his best season, Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor says he'll consider retirement at age 32.

Taylor scored twice on interceptions, had 13.5 sacks and is a contender for NFL defensive player of the year. But following a season-ending loss at Indianapolis, he said retirement is a possibility.

"Yes, I will have to think about it, and there are no guarantees," Taylor said.

At 6-10, Miami failed to make the playoffs for the fifth year in a row.

Coach Nick Saban is hoping the offseason will rekindle Taylor's enthusiasm for the game.

"He plays and competes so hard, that guy is worn out right now," Saban said. "We discussed it. He said, `I just need to go get some rest and get my batteries charged."'
