For weeks, Bill Parcells has been hearing plenty about his feud with Jason Taylor. Parcells says it doesn't exist. Ending his silence about the much-discussed topic, the Miami Dolphins' football operations czar not only said yesterday that he wants the six-time Pro Bowl defensive end on his team this fall, but he also tried to eliminate the perception that he deliberately snubbed Taylor during a chance encounter at the team's headquarters earlier this...

"I've got to thank the Cowboys for giving me a second chance," said Gramatica, once a top kicker who had just one field goal in three games since 2004.
