In 2009, Dolphins Hall of Fame defensive end Jason Taylor was named to the Senior Bowl Hall of Fame, a tribute to players who made lasting contributions on the game of football.

Taylor recently appeared on The Audible with Kim Bokamper and John Congemi. Among several topics, they discussed Zach Thomas' Hall of Fame candidacy.

Jason Taylor entered the NFL in Thomas' second season as a pro in 1997, the same year the NFL's all-time winningest coach, Don Shula, was selected for his gold jacket and inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Taylor won the Defensive MVP for the 1997 Senior Bowl despite being kicked out of the game and welcomed back in the second half. He told the story of that day on The Fish Tank podcast with O.J. McDuffie and Seth Levitt, plus why J.T. was so antsy to mix it up with his fellow All-Stars that day

From the old school back to the new, what better way to end today's Blitz than with a Christian Wilkins blooper reel?

The Dolphins made another addition to the coaching staff Monday. Jordan Salkin will be joining Head Coach Brian Flores' staff as a quality control coach. Salkin's most recent stop was at University of New Mexico, where he coached the Lobos quarterbacks. Previously, he was on the offensive staff at the University of Texas.
