The Washington Redskins acquired Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor for a second and sixth round pick. The trade comes on the same day that Phillip Daniels was sidelined for the year with a knee injury.
On face, this is a good trade for the foe in Washington. However, it is not a move that is going to change the season for these Redskins. Obviously, Taylor should be an improvement over Daniels. And the Redskins were in need of a pass rusher.
But in the same vain effort of Daniel Snyder’s free agent heydays, parallels can be made that this acquisition won’t have much effect. Remember Bruce Smith? The list goes on. Deion Sanders?
Really, what this boils down to is Bill Parcells’ obvious hatred for a team that treated him well. Hey, Parcells couldn’t take this team to a Super Bowl in four years like he had promised. It was time to move on. And since then, he has done nothing but to attack the players and organization.
Now he does this. Make ‘em pay, Cowboys. Make ‘em pay.
