Jags Release Taylor

Jacksonville, FL - The Jacksonville Jaguars have released running back Fred Taylor, the latest move in the team's makeover.

Bet NFL Future Odds
Taylor was scheduled to make about $6 million next season, so getting rid of the 11-year veteran was no surprise since he had clearly become the second option behind Maurice Jones-Drew.
The Jaguars might try to re-sign the 33-year-old back. But Taylor has made it clear he still believes he can be a starter in the NFL.
Taylor is 16th on the NFL's all-time rushing list with 11,271 yards, 81 behind John Riggins. He had 556 yards on the ground last season, splitting time with Jones-Drew, and averaged a career-low 3.9 yards a carry behind an injury-riddled offensive line.
The Jaguars released veterans Jerry Porter and Drayton Florence last week.
