The Jacksonville Jaguars have one player in their Ring Of Honor, the team's version of their own Hall Of Fame in lieu of retiring jerseys. Tony Boselli, the first ever draft pick of the Jaguars and a multi-time All-Pro left tackle is the lone name on the stadium, but there are plans to add another. Charlie Bernstein of ESPN Florida reported on Monday that the team will induct running back Fred Taylor into their Ring Of Honor on September 30th against the Cincinnati Bengals.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Jaguars all but confirmed Bernstein's report, sending out a press release announcing a Thursday afternoon press conference with Fred Taylor, who has been making the rounds in the new Jaguars caravan initiative. It is expected that the team will announce his induction into their Ring Of Honor. Taylor is the all-time franchise leading rusher and a potential Hall Of Fame candidate, finishing his career 15th all-time in rushing yards in NFL history with 11,695 yards.
