MIAMI (AP) -Bill Parcells is speaking out, and wants it known that Jason Taylor has a place with the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins' football operations czar, in one of his first interviews since joining the franchise in December, said Thursday ``of course'' he wants the six-time Pro Bowl defensive end to be on the field with Miami this fall.
``Why wouldn't you want one of the very best players?'' Parcells said in an interview with The Associated Press during an appearance at a Gatorade promotional event.
Parcells also downplayed widespread reports of a rift between he and Taylor, calling it ``a fabrication.''
Earlier this week, Taylor said he wants to play one more season, and has told the Dolphins he would agree to a trade if they wish.
