One of the University of Akron's most famous alumni passed up $7.4 million.
After being released by the Washington Redskins, Jason Taylor will return to the Miami Dolphins, where he feels more comfortable. Taylor refused to participate in offseason workouts with Washington, so the Redskins released him. He said, "My heart has always been in Miami," where he will earn $1.1 million, rather than $8.5 million.
Taylor joins fellow Akron alumnus Andy Alleman, who is an offensive lineman with the Dolphins.
