Veteran running back Fred Taylor, who is in his first year with the Patriots after 11 seasons with the Jaguars, has one personal goal in mind as he nears the end of his career.
"I've always said I wanted to catch Jim Brown," Taylor tells Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.
Taylor is 16th on the all-time rushing charts, with 11,271 yards. Brown is eighth at 12,312 yards.
"Whether I do or don't, it's been great playing in the NFL for this long. When you look at the average life span, things that I've gone through throughout my career with injuries. ... I've just got to keep moving forward. Whatever I end with, I'll take it,'' Taylor says in the Times-Union piece.
