Jason Taylor Honored With Gold Jacket Ahead of Hall of Fame Induction

It's starting to sink in for Jason Taylor on the eve of entering the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Dolphins legend got his tailor-made gold jacket Friday night.

Teammates, such as Sam Madison, and Taylor’s family were on hand for the Gold Jacket dinner in Canton, Ohio. During the dinner, the Hall of Fame inductees were serenaded by crooner Paul Anka and billionaire Warren Buffett.

Taylor's 15 years in the NFL included 13 memorable seasons with the Dolphins, but there were also those two years with the New York Jets and the Redskins. At Friday’s dinner, Taylor admitted that not staying in Miami from start to finish might be the only imperfection of his Hall of Fame career.

"Part of me regrets, not regret but wishes it could've happened that way," Taylor said.
