In a press conference this morning, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they'll be adding a second player to the team's Ring Of Honor, known as The Pride Of The Jaguars: running back Fred Taylor. Taylor will join Tony Boselli, former All-Pro offensive tackle and the team's first-ever draft pick, in having his name name on the stadium.
Taylor was chosen by the Jaguars with the ninth-overall pick in the 1998 draft out of the University of Florida. He played 11 seasons for Jacksonville and is the franchises all-time leading rusher. He ended his NFL career with 11,695 rushing yards and 66 rushing touchdowns.
The Pride Of The Jaguars takes the place of the Jaguars retiring a player's number. Taylor will be inducted on September 30, a week-four game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He joins Boselli and former owners Wayne and Dolores Weaver as the only four The Pride Of The Jaguars members.
