Fred Taylor, an 11-year veteran, has been released by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Taylor, the 16th leading rusher in NFL history, was due $6 million next season so the move comes as no surprise. The decision to cut Taylor paves the way for Maurice Jones-Drew to become the full-time starter. Jones-Drew had already started to get more of the load last season due to Taylor’s injuries.
The Jaguars may consider trying to re-sign the 33-year-old running back to a lesser contract.
