What he did: The Seahawks’ first-round draft choice in 1984 out of Southern Illinois, Terry Taylor started 52 games at cornerback through the 1988 season and then returned in 1994 to start three more in an injury-depleted secondary. Taylor’s 16 career interceptions for the Seahawks rank No. 10 on the franchise’s all-time list and he returned two for touchdowns. He also appeared in the Seahawks’ infamous Locker Room Rock video in 1985.
What he’s doing: In between his stints with the Seahawks, Taylor also played for the Detroit Lions (1989-91) and Cleveland Browns (1992-93). He finished his career in 1995 with the Atlanta Falcons. Taylor had been coaching high school football in Pennsylvania, but a knee injury forced him to retire.
If I could have dinner with anyone – living or dead – it would be: “My mom. That’s who I would have dinner with.”
Must-see TV: “I don’t have a favorite show. I like watching The History Channel.”
The best book I’ve ever read: “The Bible.”
YOU DON'T SAY
My best memory as a Seahawk: “It was when we beat the Raiders to go down to Miami.” That 13-7 victory over the Raiders in a Dec. 22, 1984, wild-card playoff game at the Kingdome sent the Seahawks to Miami, where they lost 31-10 to the Dolphins in a divisional playoff game.
Something most people don’t know about me: “That’s a good question. That I love everyone.”
If I could relive one day in my life: “My marriage. I’d just like to see myself, what I looked like that day (laughs).”
