Can Capers rediscover pass rush in Miami?

It will be interesting to see just how much the hiring of Dom Capers, the latest addition to Miami Dolphins coach Nick Saban's all-star staff of assistants, means to the expansion of the 3-4 defense in South Florida in 2006 and also to the career of Jason Taylor.

In his first season playing a hybrid end/linebacker position in 2005, the nine-year veteran Taylor collected 12 sacks and earned his fourth Pro Bowl berth, although an injury will keep him out of the league's all-star game on Feb. 12. Will the hiring of Capers be a real boost for Taylor, even though he will be 32 by the start of next season?

Maybe.
