Jonathan Taylor's Player's Tribune article thanks Madison, Badgers fans

Before Jonathan Taylor makes his next stop in the NFL, the record-setting Wisconsin Badgers running back took some time to thank Badgers fans for their support over the past three years that Taylor has been in Madison.

Taylor wrote an article for The Player's Tribune on Friday, which you can read here.

On leaving Madison:

"When I broke the news, it was a difficult decision for me. I wasn’t entirely sure how people would react. But something kind of crazy happened. I got all these DMs on Twitter and Instagram. Hundreds of them. I sort of thought like maybe these were going to be people telling me I was making a mistake, or saying I was giving up on the team … but it wasn’t like that all. They all just wanted to say thank you."

On the fans:

"You shouldn’t be thanking me. I should be thanking you, Badger Nation. You gave me a chance, and I hope that I repaid your faith in me. That’s really the beautiful thing about Madison. Everyone believes in one another."
