Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor will play the final game of his 15-year career Sunday, according to a report by the Miami Herald.
Taylor's 139.5 career sacks ranks sixth all-time, and he needs two to tie former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan for fifth place. They are behind only Bruce Smith, Reggie White, Kevin Greene and Chris Doleman.
Taylor has not announced that he plans to retire, but the report cited two team sources that said Taylor will make Sunday's game against the Jets his last.
Taylor, 37, has seven sacks this season while playing primarily as a situational pass rusher. That's two more than he had last season.
A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Taylor was also the 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and set an NFL record for defensive linemen with nine career touchdowns -- six off fumble recoveries and three off interceptions.
