Jamaar Taylor Retires

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - New York Giants receiver Jamaar Taylor retired Monday after two injury-plagued seasons in the NFL.

"We respect Jamaar's decision, but we are really sorry to see this," general manager Ernie Accorsi said. "I thought he was an outstanding prospect and played very well for us when he was healthy."

A sixth-round draft choice in 2004, Taylor played in 13 games in his two seasons with the Giants. But several knee injuries, including one that limited him to five games in the 2005 season, led to his decision to retire.

Taylor caught six passes for 146 yards, all in 2004. His most memorable game was on Nov. 28 against the Philadelphia Eagles, when he caught two passes for 102 yards.

Taylor's senior season at Texas A&M was cut short after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament.

Accorsi said Taylor was placed on the reserve-retired list so the team retains his rights in case he changes his mind.

With Plax, Toomer, Carter, Moss, Ponder and a few other longshots Taylor would have had a tough time getting any PT. The Giants were hoping to strike it rich when they drafted him in the 6th round and up until this point I had been rooting for him because I love the underdog. But Taylor just gave up. His knee problems are not career-threatening he just decided that the competition and the rehab were not worth it. Personally I think he's crazy since if I had ANY shot at the NFL they'd have to drag me out of there. I wish him the best but I think maybe the Giants are better off without a player who lacks the ambition and work ethic to be a champion. Ok I'll get off my soapbox now. :-)
