Sorry I'm a day late on this (yesterday, in a word, sucked) but I didn't want this to go by without commenting.
On Bedard's blog yesterday, he used reports that Jason Taylor was visiting the Jets as a chance to once again posit that the Packers should look into bringing in the one time Defensive Player of the Year.
For the past couple of months I've been thinking that depending on what the Packers do or don't do at OLB in the draft, Taylor would be a perfect signing in May or June if the Packers need someone there. He won DPOY in Capers' system. From people I've talked to, he was by far the Dolphins' most consistent linebacker last season (had seven sacks) - and the 35-year-old played 828 snaps. He wasn't just a part-time player at his age. If the Dolphins don't get an impact-type guy at OLB in the draft, I'd give Taylor a one-year contract to help mentor Brad Jones. Taylor is 6-6, 255. Packers need more of that kind of length in their defense, and he'd be a very good leader.
This all makes a lot of sense to me - which, of course, means that Ted Thompson will never consider it.
