Dolphins cornerback Jamar Taylor’s rookie season did not go as well as many hoped it would after the Dolphins drafted him in the second round of the 2013 draft.
Taylor had sports hernia surgery that limited him to nine games, most of which were spent playing a limited role in the secondary. Taylor said he found it so demoralizing to sit and watch others playing the game that he questioned whether or not he wanted to keep playing the game.
“It was to the point last year I thought I was done playing football,” Taylor said, via the Idaho Statesman. “I didn’t want to play anymore. I was out of it. Thank God for my girlfriend, my family, my pastors and God — because I made it through and kept working. I’m really looking forward to this year. I’m going to turn a lot of heads.”
The Dolphins lost Dimitri Patterson and Nolan Carroll in free agency and signed veteran Cortland Finnegan after he was released by the Rams. All the roster shuffling leaves a big opening for Taylor to fill now that he’s “healthy and ready to take over the world.”
