Skins trade for Dolphins Taylor after Phillips goes down
ESPN.com news services

After losing defensive end Phillip Daniels for the season, the Washington Redskins moved quickly to fill the void.

The Redskins acquired Jason Taylor from the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins will receive a second-round pick in 2009 and a sixth-rounder in 2010.

Daniels, a starter, was hurt on the initial play of 7-on-7 offense vs. defense drills on Sunday. He stayed down on the turf for several minutes before being taken away on a cart, a towel draped over his head. He's expected to have surgery Friday.

"Not a good way to start, at all," middle linebacker London Fletcher said. "It's a big blow to our defense. Phil was a tremendous leader, excellent at playing the run, and was going to be our third-down attack guy. With him going down, it's like we're replacing two guys."

ESPN.com's John Clayton first reported Daniels' season-ending injury and the fact that the Redskins were pursuing Taylor.

Washington executive vice president Vinny Cerrato said Taylor is expected to report to Redskins training camp on Monday.

The Redskins also lost another defensive end, reserve Alex Buzbee, to a season-ending injury during their afternoon practice. Buzbee ruptured his Achilles tendon.

"With Phillip gone, and now Buzbee gone, there's a hole there," head coach Jim Zorn said. "And Phillip has created a big hole."

Day 1 of Zorn's training camp debut as an NFL head coach also included this sight: Cornerback Fred Smoot threw off his left shoe and clearly was in pain after wideout Santana Moss landed on him during the afternoon practice. It turned out Smoot sprained his ankle and is expected to only miss a week or less.

"I love sprained ankles now, because we know that's just a few days' deal," Zorn said, cracking a smile.

He was more serious while speaking about the loss of Daniels, who has played 12 seasons in the NFL with Washington, Chicago and Seattle. His 59 career sacks rank 17th among active players.

"The hard part is he was so ready, and he did everything that he could possibly do to not just have a great training camp but an excellent football season," Zorn said. "And now he's got a new challenge before him, and of course we have a new challenge before us."

The Redskins began training camp with Erasmus James sidelined. He's a former first-round pick who has had serious knee injuries, and Zorn said he doesn't expect James to be able to begin practicing until next month.

Just imagine if we would have waited to trade Jared Allen. We could have gotten the Redskins' entire draft for the next four or five seasons.

Not sure Taylor will make a difference in that division, but we'll see.

I don't think they've really been going on free agency spending sprees the last few years, there was only one ridiculous year where they brought in Deion Sanders and others, and that was long enough ago that they probably have all those contracts paid off by now.

It's hilarious that the Redskins think they're a contender every year. With or without Taylor, they're going to suck and miss the playoffs again.

Do you want to be the coach that tells that to Danny Boy?

They made the playoffs last year, but your point still stands.

Wow. That's a hefty price for an old guy that wants to be out of the league so he can act and save dogs.

The skins are in a tough spot, but I don't think I'd pull the trigger on that deal.

??......maybe you were just trying to be funny, but Jason Taylor is a hell of a football player. I bet he'll be a top tier play until 2010.

I think this will be his last year in the league. Broken hip or not he won't be around by the time the 2010 draft comes around.

You're probably right, but I think he's still a pretty decent player.

He's still one of the best DEs in the game, but it's assinine to give up two draft picks, one of them as high as a 2nd, for a player that, at most, plays only two years more.

Snyder is retarded.

Not only will Taylor only play for 2 more years tops, but Snyder also seems to forget that the Redskins aren't close to becoming a real Super Bowl threat.

The Skins are running their team like the Chiefs of the aughts. They even had Al Saunders, briefly.

If and only if the Dolphins choose wisely.

Parcells doesn't exactly have a stellar draft record.

Snyder is retarded.

No, he's not.

He's doing the best he can to keep fan interest up, fill a stadium and win a championship.

The 'Skins were a playoff team last year and play in a division with three other very strong franchises (and the last Super Bowl winner). After losing two defensive ends in one week, they had to do something.

It's a bold move that may or may not pan out. But at least he made the move.

Synder's had plenty of misses on free agent pickups and draft picks, but the way I look at him is that he's trying to field a winning team year in and year out. I wonder what it would be like to root for a team like that. We've always had defense with no offense or offense with no defense. Hardly tried to make moves to fill holes and balance your team out.

Yep, you can see they put real effort into it as well, bought and all star coaching staff. Hell, didnt they at least win 1 play off game? I dont even know what that feels like in football anymore. Last time that happened i was a in highschool i believe.
