All-Time Jaguars Great Fred Taylor to Retire

The Jaguars will ceremonially sign former running back Fred Taylor tomorrow so he can retire with the team that drafted him. The Jaguars will begin making cuts tomorrow, which will allow them space on the roster to make the move. The team must reduce its roster to 53 players by Saturday.

Taylor spent 11 seasons with the Jaguars and is the team’s leading rusher all time with 11,271 career yards in Jacksonville. He’s also third all time in receptions with 2,361 yards on 286 catches.

The Jaguars released Taylor after the 2008 season and Taylor signed with the Patriots. After the 2010 season ended, he ruminated over retirement, a difficult decision for a man who’d played football most of his life.
