Running back Fred Taylor has signed with the New England Patriots after spending 11 seasons with Jacksonville.

Taylor was cut by the Jaguars in a salary-cup move. On Friday, he joined a team in which running back Laurence Maroney has been bothered by injuries for most of his career.

The 33-year-old Taylor ran for more than 11,000 yards with Jaguars and is 16th on the career rushing list. He has averaged 4.64 yards a carry, fifth among backs with more than 10,000 yards rushing. .

Taylor made his first Pro Bowl in 2007. Last season, he averaged a career-low 3.9 yards a carry behind an injury-riddled offensive line as Maurice Jones-Drew took over more of the load.
