Why can't they...get along?

The "Sporting Pharisee" is a Miami Dolphins fan, as some of you may know. I have been one since before Don Shula. Before there was even one winning season.
One of "our" (notice the ownership) division rivals is the New York Jets. Why would the "Fins" let one of the greatest defenders, a man with gas still in the tank, go to the enemy?

It sets up the possibility that Jason alone could be responsible for the Dolphins losing a division championship in 2010. Jason is one of the few players who can seem to "will" victory, from defeat. Playing for an inferior Miami Dolphin team in 2006, IN Chicago, Jason came from a "down" position (DE/LB) to influence the game so heavily that he won it on his own.

Playing DEFENSE.

At a lineman's position.

Against Chicago.

In Chicago.

Against an undefeated team (at the time).

The Dolphins at that point in the season had only one win.

It just doesn't make sense to me to let him go when he has almost certainly, a few more such games to play.
