Parcells noncommittal on Jason Taylor return

Dolphins football czar Bill Parcells came out from behind the iron curtain of Dolphins silence Monday to do a live chat on NFL.com.

And during that chat he was asked about the Super Bowl, his time with the Cowboys, his relationship with Dan Henning, and other things. There were even a couple of good Dolphins questions that he talk.

The big headline of the entire chat?

Parcells is noncommittal about Jason Taylor's return to the Dolphins in 2010.

"I don't know the answer to the Taylor question at this moment," he said. "He's a free agent as of March 5 and we haven't discussed it yet. We'll see where that goes when the time comes."

Frankly, Taylor is noncommittal with the Dolphins as well. Why does this seem like two people who want to date but neither is willing to make the first move? Too bad because what normally happens in those cases is they wind up with other people.

New England Patriots? New York Jets?

The Big Tuna was asked if he took the call from Rex Ryan during the season when the Jets coach called for advice.

"Rex did call -- but it was for advice on the Breeder's Cup," Parcells answered. "I told him he should consult with someone else on that matter!"

Parcells was asked if the Dolphins are interested in bringing in a No. 1 receiver for quarterback Chad Henne.

"... we'd be interested in the position," he replied. "But they have to be available, we can't invent them."

Parcells was asked if the Dolphins might be interested in Chad Pennington as a coach, which is not a good question because Pennington wants to continue to play. And Parcells said as much.

"I think Chad's intention is to try to continue playing, so I don't think coaching is on the forefront for him right now," Parcells said.
