Today, we lost a legend……
Charley Taylor, a Hall of Fame wide receiver who helped lead Washington to a Super Bowl appearance and several playoff berths, passed away on Feb. 19. He was 80.
Taylor was drafted 3rd overall by Washington in the 1964 NFL Draft, had a decorated 14-year career with the franchise. He was an eight-time Pro Bowler with a First-Team All-Pro selection in 1967.
He was part of the Hall of Fame’s All-1960s team, and he was selected as the AP and UPI Rookie of the Year in 1964. He was selected to the Hall of Fame in 1984.
We at NFL Draft Diamonds are praying for the Taylor family. Taylor was a legend, and you will be missed.
