Jason Taylor's newest step has him back where he started. The dancing linebacker signed a $1.5-million, one-year contract Wednesday with the Miami Dolphins. Taylor played his first 11 seasons with Miami before being traded a year ago to the Washington Redskins -- a fallout from his stint on the TV show "Dancing With the Stars." He was released by Washington in March after one injury-plagued season.

Cameron Wake might know the short way to the quarterback, but the Miami Dolphins outside linebacker sure took the long way to the NFL. Wake, whose sack-strip of Brett Favre last Sunday led to an instant Dolphins touchdown, took one of the more roundabout routes imaginable to get where he is today. Strong play from Wake on Sunday night will be key to contain the visiting New York Jets and quarterback Mark Sanchez. "When a guy can beat you with both his legs and his arm, it puts more stress on your defense," Wake told the Palm Beach Post last week, referring to Sanchez, the former USC quarterback.

We should have seen this coming: the Philadelphia Eagles ran a reverse with Michael Vick. After repeatedly stressing Kevin Kolb is their No. 1 quarterback and would get his job back as soon as he was cleared to return from his concussion, the Eagles announced Tuesday that Vick will remain the starter. "When someone is playing at the level Michael Vick is playing, you have to give him an opportunity," Coach Andy Reid said, two days after Vick threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-32 victory at Detroit.

Flawless as he might look to his "Dancing With the Stars" fans, Jason Taylor has a permanent blemish. There's a tiny scar between his eyes, a 20-year-old wound incurred not on the football field, but, of all places, on the dance floor. "Back when I was about 10 years old, I was dancing to Michael Jackson at a little party," said Taylor, 33, an All-Pro defensive end for the Miami Dolphins. "I was a kid and had no inhibitions. I tried to spin and slipped on the floor . . .

So what's the secret to the Miami Dolphin defense, which has largely carried the team? A little cockiness, a little swagger. And, oh yes, a lot of talent. "This year is a whole new attitude," said defensive end Jason Taylor, who already has 5 1/2 sacks after getting only 2 1/2 last season. "I've just been playing with a lot more confidence. You've got to walk around with borderline cockiness and a swagger. If you don't have it, you're not going to make it."

WASHINGTON -- Knowing Vinny Cerrato, who watches a lot of ESPN, listens to Miserable Suburban Guy radio and pays close attention to what the masses think, it seems only natural to open up with an obvious one: "So, how does it feel when you hear someone say, 'When are the Redskins going to get a real GM?' " Cerrato pauses and thinks, reclining in his suburban office below a color-coded board of every NFL player's name and status. "I haven't heard it for a while," he finally says.

Jason Taylor is leaving the only NFL team he has known, going from the Miami Dolphins to the Washington Redskins in a trade Sunday. The Redskins gave the Dolphins a second-round pick in 2009 and a sixth-round choice in 2010 for Taylor. The six-time Pro Bowl defensive end -- who was the 2006 NFL defensive player of the year -- fell out of favor in Miami after spending his off-season on the TV show "Dancing With the Stars" rather than working out with teammates. The deal came about nine hours after starting defensive end Phillip Daniels was carted away from the practice field at Redskins Park with a season-ending left knee injury on Day 1 of training camp.

Kenny Perry joined Tiger Woods as a three-time winner of the Memorial on Sunday, taking a big step toward joining the No. 1 player in the world on the Ryder Cup team this fall. With every contender in full retreat on the back nine, the 47-year-old Perry surged ahead with pars and one timely birdie, coasting home to a three-under-par 69 and a two-shot victory in Dublin, Ohio, that could not have come at a better time. He became the oldest winner of the tournament.

Miami Dolphins Coach Tony Sparano said Wednesday that Jason Taylor isn't expected to take part in any team activities through training camp and signaled the team is ready to move on without the six-time Pro Bowl defensive end. The revelation came less than 24 hours after Taylor finished second to Kristi Yamaguchi in the finals of "Dancing With the Stars" in Los Angeles. "I'm glad we know this. We've gotten the information, and that's important," Sparano said after a voluntary mini-camp.
