Former Jaguars running back Fred Taylor just wants some respect put on his name.
Taylor, who once complained about being voted the 2nd-best player in Jaguars history, joined Maurice-Jones Drew on NFL Total Access and spoke about why he believes he is a hall of famer.
“Obviously I think I belong,” Taylor said. “It’s not in my hands. I think the voters, after doing a deep dive, they’ll understand that I belong there too. I really believe I had a solid career, and hopefully the writers will understand that one day.”
Taylor had seven 1,000-yard seasons during his career, but was never considered the best running back in the league during his prime. On top of that, he was never a 1st-team all-pro nor was he in the top 5 in the league in rushing yards or yards from scrimmage.
It’s extremely unlikely that he ever gets in, considering he has never been one of the 15 finalists for the Hall of Fame.
