As the 2007 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and 2002 NFL sacks leader, former defensive specialist Jason Taylor is a legendary NFL icon every Miami Dolphins fan has idolized at some point in his or her life. Just the third person to be inducted into the University of Akron’s Ring of Honor after his incredible NCAA career, Taylor debuted in the NFL wearing the Dolphins iconic teal and orange uniform in 1997. He spent ten seasons in the sunshine state before a season with the Washington Redskins, but Miami continued to call and Taylor returned, not once, but twice (he spent a season with the New York Jets) to the Dolphins roster before his 2011 retirement. Over the course of his 15-year career Jason Taylor recorded 775 tackles, 139.5 quarterback sacks and 48 forced fumbles along with numerous awards and accolades. I had the great honor of interviewing this 2017 Football Hall of Fame inductee about his career and personal reflection on time spent in the NFL.
