Jason Taylor had been rumored to be retiring from football following the 2010 season. He didn't like that rumor very much.
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, Taylor recently signed with agency CAA to handle his "off-field interests." CAA, however, maintains an "all or nothing" policy barring players from being represented for their "on-field interests" by another firm. Given that Taylor is represented by Gary Wichard as far as football is concerned, CAA must be assuming that Taylor won't be signing any more contracts after his current deal runs out in 2011. Further sources have confirmed this logical conclusion that Taylor won't be back, but at the very least, he's dispelling that notion for now.
When asked about such following Sunday's home loss to the Packers, Taylor told Newsday, "It?s amazing the crap Mike Florio puts out there. I don?t know where it comes from."
Despite Taylor's denial, ProFootballTalk has stood behind their story.
Taylor has three sacks through seven games in a supporting role thus far this season.
