Taylor In Teal Through 2007
The extension, when added to the one year that Taylor had remaining on his original contract, creates a five-year deal through the 2007 campaign. The new deal includes an eight million dollar signing bonus it's also loaded with incentives that could give Taylor about another $2.6 Million a year based on performance.
Taylor, who checks in at 6-foot-1 and 231 pounds, is considered one of the premier running backs in the league when healthy.
Last year, he remained injury free for the first time in his five year NFL career by rushing for 1,399 yards.
In his five years as Jaguar, Taylor has rushed for 4,784 yards on a 1,032 carries.
With the off-season free agency signings and this contract extension; Jaguar management will most likely turn most of their attention to the upcoming college draft in late April.
