Former NFL pro Jason Taylor is ready to leave his fun-filled mansion in Florida

Former Miami Dolphins player Jason Taylor has listed his tricked-out mansion in the Weston, Fla., area for sale at $4.15 million.

The custom two-story waterfront house, built in 2005, is amped up with fun amenities. There’s a walk-in humidor with a cigar/poker room, a curved glass wine cellar and a billiards room. The soundproof theater has a 127-inch curved screen. Some people know how to live.

Surrounded by tropical landscaping, the home is decked out with such high-end finishes as Venetian plaster walls, faux-painted coved and coffered ceilings and custom mill work. Within the 10,247 square feet of living space are a grand foyer entry, a formal living room with fireplace, a den/library, a family room, a great room, a top-of-the-line kitchen, 10 bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and two powder rooms.

A free-form infinity-edge pool and spa and a large patio with an outdoor kitchen are on the more than one acre of grounds. A circular paver driveway leads to a four-car garage.

Taylor, 41, spent most of his 15-year NFL career as a defensive end and linebacker for the Dolphins. He also played for the Washington Redskins and the New York Jets. He is the all-time league leader with six fumble-returned touchdowns.

Since his days on the gridiron, he has spent some time on the dance floor. Taylor was a “Dancing With the Stars” runner-up in 2008. He also has worked as an NFL analyst for ESPN.
