Kitrick Taylor … His name is synonymous with Brett Favre’s breakout game against the Cincinnati Bengals way back in 1992.
Of course, he was the receiver who caught the touchdown bomb from Favre to win that game and kick Favre’s Hall of Fame career in gear.
What’s ironic is that Taylor was in that game because Sterling Sharpe, who caught a huge 40-yard pass to midfield the play prior to the touchdown, was injured on that play. Taylor came in and caught the now famous pass.
But what’s really ironic is that Taylor was cut the very next day to clear room on the roster for another player who was returning from injury.
