Taylor traded to Redskins

By mrasor Published: July 20, 2008

Akron's most famous alumnus went from cellar-dweller to playoff team when the Washington Redskins acquired Jason Taylor in exchange for a second- and sixth-round pick.
Taylor made headlines this offseason by making it to the finals of Dancing with the Stars. The Dolphins weren't too enthused, and Bill Parcels wanted to dump Taylor.
A recent poll of NFL coaches asked which one player you would pick first if the entire league was eligible to be drafted. Taylor was one of only three players who received votes. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were the others.
