I learned this morning that "T-Rock," one of my fellow Dolphins website owners - and a person I considered a friend - passed away a short time ago.
We weren't that close, but I did enjoy sharing stories and having a little fun when we had an opportunity. For one season, I partnered with him and Big Dave to provide content for PhinFever, instead of maitaining my blog.
Tom, I will miss your wit and sense of humor. You were a passionate fan, and the Dolphins need all the fans they can get! :)
T-Rock is on the right in the above picture
I did a podcast with Tom a season or so ago, and you can listen to it here.
Jason apparently decided that Andre Carter's demands for compensation were too great, and he appeared at the Redskins practice wearing #55. And that number is now for sale via the Redskins and the NFL.
What amused me is that Zach wasn't able to get 54 in Dallas, so he, too, took 55.
Jason Taylor was traded to the Washington Redskins for a 2nd round pick in '09 and a 6th round pick in '10. The Redskins had two d-linemen go down with injuries on the first day of practice, and there was a need...
...and the Dolphins were willing to listen.
At least Zach and JT's teams will meet up twice a year.
