Taylor said he took his time in making this decision. Johnson was the coach who drafted Taylor in the third round in 1997 out of the University of Akron and helped mold the defensive end’s early portion of his career.
Taylor, a first-ballot Hall of Famer, finished with a franchise record 139.5 career sacks in 15 seasons. He will join former running back LaDainian Tomlinson, kicker Morten Anderson, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, running back Terrell Davis and quarterback Kurt Warner as members of the 2017 Hall of Fame class.
