Lionel Taylor

Former AFL wide receiver Lionel Taylor started his career with the Chicago Bears before joining the Denver Broncos in 1960.

He was the first receiver in the history of the game to catch 100 passes in one season (a 14-game season in 1961), and was a four-time AFL All Star selection.

Having played seven years in Denver, Taylor now ranks second in all-time receptions (543) for the Broncos, he retired their all-time leading receiver in yardage (6,872).

In an era very different from the pass-heavy offenses we see today, Taylor put up outstanding numbers and was the Broncos' team MVP in 1963, 1964 and 1965.

He ended his career with four seasons of over 1,000 yards receiving, 567 receptions, 7,195 yards and 45 touchdowns.

Taylor was a pioneer receiver for Professional Football, and deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.


  1. I grew up Las Vegas, NM and watched Lionel Taylor play for the NM Highlands U. Cowboys and
    knew he would someday be a great player. He
    deserves to be inducted into the NFL Hall of
    Fame. All of us kids were treated us with respect by Lionel which made him special.
    When I moved to Portland, OR and he was asst.
    Coach at Oregon State, he still remembered me.
    Great persons do that. Go Lionel Go. Tks,
    Santee Trujillo, a Fan... Always

  2. I met Lionel last weekend at my grandmother's memorial. He is an old friend of my late grandmother. He is a very down to earth guy and great to talk to.
