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, 34, played his first 11 seasons with Miami before being traded a year ago to Washington – a fallout from his stint on the TV show “Dancing With the Stars.” He was released by Washington in March after one season. Taylor wanted to return to South Florida, his home. Taylor made the Pro Bowl six times and was NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2006.
