At 37, Jason Taylor admits retiring at his age is "a little weird." Just a few weeks later, Miami-Dade Commissioners proclaimed Jan. 24 "Jason Taylor Day."

"It's cool ... It's humbling," said Taylor, who is sixth in all-time sacks in NFL history, plus has a record six fumble returns for touchdowns.

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez gave the former Dolphins defensive end and linebacker the key to the city. Taylor recalled former Miami Heat star Shaquille O'Neal getting the same honor, and thinking then he'd like it for himself one day.

So what's next? The former "Dancing With the Stars" competitor admits he has silver screen aspirations.

"I have hopes and dreams," Taylor said.

First, he'll be helping NBC with TV coverage the week of the Super Bowl.

Then, if the right project comes along, "we'll explore," he said.
