Taylor no longer on the prowl

Fred Taylor will announce his retirement this week. The long-time Jaguar, who played the past two years in New England, will sign with the Jags for a day to retire as a member of the franchise. Below are some thoughts on the retirement; you can see how it compares to others in this accumulated post: https://footballrelativity.wordpress.com/2011/05/10/fr-2011-retirements/

Taylor had a fine 11-year career, running for 11,695 yards with seven 1,000-yard seasons. For a long time, he was known as the best player never to make a Pro Bowl, but he finally got the Hawaii trip in 2007, his last thousand-yard campaign. He finishes his career at No. 15 on the all-time rushing list, which is quite an accomplishment, and he has a strong 4.6 yards per carry average in his career. He’s not a Hall of Famer, but he is probably the best Jaguar ever. That’s saying something.
