6-time Pro Bowler Taylor to retire after season
Question of the Day
His best season was in 2006, when he was chosen NFL Defensive Player of the Year. That season he had 13 1/2 sacks, forced 10 fumbles and returned two interceptions for scores.
Taylor has scored nine touchdowns, the most by any player whose primary position was the defensive line and who entered the league after 1970. He has four safeties, which ties him for fourth in NFL history. Taylor holds a Dolphins record with 27 fumble recoveries.
He has been honored many times for his work in the community, and his South Florida foundation has contributed more than $2 million in grants and services to help children.
“He’s a tremendous role model,” teammate Kendall Langford said. “He is always giving, giving, giving.”
The foundation will help keep Taylor busy in retirement. He has also dabbled in acting, and earned runner-up honors on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” in 2008.
“I look forward to the future. There are a few irons in the fire,” Taylor said. “Nothing is going to replace professional football. You can’t find it on the golf course or anywhere. There’s no place like an NFL locker room. Those guys become your family for seven months of the year. You won’t replace that. But I’ll find something else.”
