Vincent Taylor saw more in his first 12 years anyone should see in a lifetime.

Crime and violence.

Death and destruction.

When Hurricane Katrina closed in on his home back in 2005, the odds on him being where he is now — a starter and ascending talent in the National Football League — were slim.

He was simply worried about survival.

So how did he get here?

Taylor took us through his journey from the Bayou to South Florida — with stops in San Antonio and Stillwater along the way — in our latest Dolphins in Depth podcast.

Oh yeah, he previewed the Dolphins-Bears game, too, and told us what it’s going to take to snap Miami’s two-game skid.
