Taylor saw limited action as a rookie but was a Pro Bowl Kick Returner in his sophomore year, the same season where San Francisco won Super Bowl XXIII. The Wide Receiver was a Pro Bowler again in 1989, though this time at the offensive skill position. Taylor had 1,077 Yards with 10 TDs and likewise aided the 49ers in a Super Bowl win.
Taylor was never chosen for another Pro Bowl, but he was a very good Wide Receiver who had another 1,000 year in 1991. He played until 1995, winning another Super Bowl and finishing with 5,598 Yards and 43 Touchdowns.
