So says The South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
According to a blog post by Miami Dolphins beat writer Mike Berardino, an associate of Taylor’s said the deal is “close to done” and the only thing left to iron out is how much of the voluntary off-season program Taylor needs to attend.
“He was courted by some other teams but it looks like New York is the spot," the associate is quoted as saying. "He's waiting for them to make it more enticing for him."
The paper said the deal would be for two years at $3.45 million -- the maximum the Jets could pay him under the new rules for an uncapped NFL year.
But Taylor’s agent, Gary Wichard, told Berardino there won’t be any news to report until next week.
The Jets said today they have no update on the deal.
