Jacksonville Jaguars To Induct Fred Taylor Into Ring of Honor
The Jacksonville Jaguars are ready to induct their second player into their version of a ring of honor known as the Pride of the Jaguars.
Taylor played 11 seasons for the Jaguars and currently holds most of the franchise rushing records. He will join the Jaguars first ever draft pick, Tony Boselli, and the team’s first owners, Wayne and Delores Weaver, as the only members of the Pride of the Jaguars.
He is not only a great Jaguars running back, but one of the best running backs in the history of the NFL.
Taylor currently ranks 15th all time in NFL history with 11,695 career rushing yards. However, he spent most of his career playing in the small market of Jacksonville so he was only selected to one Pro Bowl following the 2007 season.
While his place in Jaguars history has long been set in stone, Taylor will be an interesting case for the Pro Football Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible in 2016.
While Taylor has no Super Bowl rings or received much national praise for his career, his numbers speak for themselves. All running backs ahead of him on the all time rushing yards list that have been eligible have all been inducted to the Hall of Fame.
It will be interesting if the people that select Hall of Fame players deem Taylor worthy of the ultimate individual honor an NFL player can receive.
