Fred Taylor Among 41 Pro Bowl 'Rookies'

There are 1 comment on the The Associated Press story from Feb 9, 2008, titled Fred Taylor Among 41 Pro Bowl 'Rookies' . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

“My peers know that I'm supposed to be here and all of them having been saying the same thing all week: 'It's about time,'”

Fred Taylor was in no hurry. The Jacksonville Jaguars' running back signed dozens of autographs, chatted with old friends and high-fived KC Wolf (the Kansas City Chiefs mascot) before heading back to his posh oceanside hotel.

'It's all good,' said Taylor, who is relishing his first trip to the Pro Bowl.

No one can blame him for taking his time. It took him 10 years and 10,715 yards rushing to finally get to Hawaii.
