Free agent defensive end Jason Taylor sounded thrilled Sunday night when asked about the possibility of playing for the Patriots. Speaking at a charity event on South Florida, he said he heard what New England owner Robert Kraft said about him, and said "it's great to be wanted." "I did hear that. I can't lie," Taylor told ESPN.com's Tim Graham Sunday night on the red carpet of an event for the Jason Taylor Foundation at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. "I have not talked to Robert Kraft. We'll leave it at that. Those things will sort themselves out, and hopefully in the near future so I can get back to work. "But it's great to be wanted. It's great to be wanted. Sure, especially an organization like them or the Dolphins." Kraft, speaking Tuesday at the NFL owners' meeting in Dana Point, Calif., was asked about the possibility of signing Taylor. "Great player," Kraft told Yahoo! Sports. "I'm sure that can happen if he wants it." The 34-year-old Taylor, a six-time Pro Bowler, was also asked about a possible return to the Dolphins. Taylor spent 11 seasons with before moving on to spend last year in Washington, and still maintains a residence in South Florida. "Absolutely. There's no reason I wouldn't [be interested]." But Taylor also noted, "I'm the wrong person to talk to about that. I sign one line on the contract, and the other guy signs the other line."
