EXCLUSIVE: Jason Taylor already has had a taste of TV, spending 15 years playing on Sundays for Miami, Washington and the New York Jets before retiring at the end of this past season as a Dolphin. He also was a contestant on Season 6 of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars in 2008, finishing as runner-up on a show where football players always seem to do well. WME will represent him in all areas. The signing is the latest NFL pickup for the agency, which last month inked Denver quarterback/media darling Tim Tebow for endorsements, public appearances, speaking engagements, TV, film, and books.
