Taylor NFL defensive Player of the Year
Taylor proved this year he was not only Miami's most dominant player but one of the best players in the NFL.
The end who sometimes lines up at linebacker had 62 tackles, 13 ½ sacks, 14 quarterback hurries, two interceptions -- both returned for TDs -- 11 passes defensed, 10 fumbles forced and two fumbles recovered.
Taylor is holding a press conference at 12:30 today to talk about the awards and other subjects, but he has been asked about this award before.
"It’s always a flattering point but this is the ultimate team game on the planet," Taylor said last week of the award. "Of course you would like to have team success like [Indianapolis] is having than lead in individual accolades but if that was to happen it would still be a team award for me.
"It would be an award that I would share with the whole defensive unit. But like it said, I would much rather be playing January."
