Report: Former Patriot and Jaguar Fred Taylor to Retire

In not so surprising news, former Patriot, Fred Taylor will reportedly hang up his cleats and retire as a Jacksonville Jaguar.

Tania Ganguli, of the Florida-Times Union, tweeted that Taylor will ceremonially sign with the Jaguars tomorrow before retiring.

Taylor is just one of 30 backs to rush for over 10,000 yards and is currently the all-time leading rusher in Jaguars team history.

But, the fit in New England wasn’t there.

Taylor rushed for 424 yards in 13 games with the Patriots and can have his two-year stint with the team defined in one word: unfulfillable.

Still, Taylor’s long NFL career is to be celebrated. The former Florida Gator had this to say on Twitter:

I want to thank every1 who has directly or indirectly supported my career and help shape my character #SaluteYou Love u All Gators/Jags/Pats
