Running Back Fred Taylor to Join the Jaguars and Announce Retirement

He will go down as one of the great running backs of this era, and tomorrow, he will walk away as a member of the team that drafted him.

The Jaguars will ceremonially sign former running back Fred Taylor tomorrow so he can retire as a member of the Cats. Jacksonville 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.

    We loved Fred up here in New England and I am glad the Jags are stepping up to the plate to take care of him. Well played Jags, well played.

    Loved Fred Taylor, love it when they return to their original team and retire, shows they never forgot where they came from. Class act.
