Jason Taylor to win Walter Payton award

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Defensive end Jason Taylor will be named the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year by halftime of today's game, The Miami Herald has learned.

Taylor, who has spent countless hours of work on his Jason Taylor Foundation, will win the award named for the legendary Chicago Bears running back, who died in 1999. Taylor beat out Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, Kansas City Chiefs guard Brian Waters and Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten.

The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award is the only league award that recognizes a player’s off-the-field community service as well as his playing excellence.

Taylor joins Dan Marino (1998) and Dwight Stephenson (1985) as former Dolphins players to win the award.

So what gets him in the hall of fame?

I am guessing 150 sacks 3 more pro bowls, one superbowl appearance or one more defensive MVP.

What do you all think?

Mando, please rip LeBetard a new one when you see him. The article he wrote earlier today, about the Pats being more perfect than the Dolphins, was premature and laughable in so many ways. Congrats to J.T.! NYScott
