WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -Jason Taylor is headed back to South Florida after three months away from home. But the six-time Pro Bowl defensive end doesn't sound like he's in any rush to settle his stalemate with the Dolphins.
``I'm under contract with the Dolphins. So again, I'm looking forward to playing some golf. Football doesn't start until July and training camp, so I'll be all right,'' Taylor said Wednesday after playing in a pro-am for the Principal Charity Classic, a Champions Tour event in Iowa. ``I've been in L.A. and so far removed from it. Like I said, I'll deal with that when I get there.''
Taylor will return home to host a charity golf tournament this weekend. The Dolphins, who are upset that Taylor spent the offseason on the hit TV show ``Dancing With the Stars'' rather than in South Florida working out with teammates, likely won't have Taylor on hand when they hold a mandatory minicamp June 6-8.
Miami coach Tony Sparano said last week that Taylor isn't expected to take part in any team activities through training camp.
Taylor avoided questions about whether he plans to meet with Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Bill Parcells when he gets back. Taylor says his immediate plans are to work out, play golf and relax at home.
``We'll work with football here in the near future,'' Taylor said.
