Dolphins head coach, Joe Philbin was happy with Taylor volunteering to help out the team and spoke about the possibility of more former Dolphins coming out to offer their services (Courtesy of Miami Dolphins.com):
We’ve reached out to a lot of guys. We anticipate other former players getting a little more involved. We’d love to have them come by. We were fortunate last week in Phase Two (of the offseason conditioning program) that Nick Buoniconti came back — hometown boy from Springfield, Massachusetts — and he had a chance to talk to the team.
We’re going to encourage that and get as many former players out here as possible. How many want to put the whistle on, that’s another story. As you guys know, we have a tremendous alumni group. These guys have been very, very supportive of our staff and we certainly want to involve them whenever we can.
Well now just a few days later yet another Dolphin alumni has made his way to Dolphins OTA’s; former four time pro-bowl cornerback Sam Madison:

Madison was drafted by the Dolphins in the second round of the 1997 NFL Draft. He made the pro-bowl four straight seasons as a member of the Dolphins and recorded 353 tackles, a sack, 31 interceptions and two touchdowns in eight years in the white and teal uniform. Madison finished up his playing career with the New York Giants for two seasons, winning Super Bowl 42 before retiring.
