Jason Taylor's a Cover Boy
Jason Taylor's on-field results? Still unclear, due to that bizarre injury, for which no one faults him, even though you don't necessarily get your draft picks back if the guy you traded for gets hurt.
Jason Taylor's off-field results? First movie screenings with Hollywood stars, and now glossy cover shoots and interviews with Lindsay Czarniak? Plus, he gets to go to the post-game podium even after mostly unremarkable games like last Sunday's? So that's pretty much working out.
As The Reliable Source noted yesterday, Taylor graces the cover of the new Capitol File; there are also two full-page color photos of him inside wearing formal wear designed by Ermenegildo Zegna, with each outfit costing about $4k. "Jewelry and watch, Taylor's own," the caption says.
Among the interview highlights:
On his habit of giving away Jordan Brand swag to teammates: "The smaller guys like Fred Smoot [are funniest to watch], because all the stuff comes in my size...and they can't fit the shoes. A lot of the clothes are too big, but they still take them anyway. We have guys taking shoes that are 14s and they wear a 12, talking about how they'll just wear extra socks."
On the perfect day in Washington: "I want to sit on Lincoln's lap. I want to tour the Capitol, like the back-door tour. I want to visit the Pentagon and the FBI, because I always wanted to be an FBI or CIA agent. That always intrigued me."
On his perfect Hollywood role: "The perfect role would be a movie like Oceans 13, where you have a big ensemble cast with a George Clooney and a Brad Pitt and a Matt Damon; where they can carry the movie and I would get a small juicy role--well, not too small, but a nice role where I didn't have to be the guy...."
On fighting with his sister over the TV as a kid: "....She ended up putting on what she wanted to watch and I would change it. It went back and forth, so I let her win for a second and when she sat down on the couch, I came in and was like, 'Well, if I can't watch what I want to watch, ain't nobody watching anything.' I snatched the TV off the little table and threw it out the [third-floor] window. We didn't have a TV again in the house until I was 16."
