Linebacker Lawrence Taylor is the only member of the New York Giants to be included in the Pro Football Hall of Fame "Super Bowl 50 Golden Team," its version of an all-time Super Bowl team.

The 27-man team is meant to celebrate "the best overall career performances in the Super Bowl."

"The Super Bowl 50 Golden Team is an amazing list of incredible individuals," said Pro Football Hall of Fame Executive Vice President Joe Horrigan. "Each name conjures up memories of some of the sport's greatest games showcased on its biggest platform, the Super Bowl stage. Unforgettable individual performances like Lynn Swann's acrobatic catches in Super Bowl X or Joe Montana's come-from-behind game winning drive in Super Bowl XXIII are forever etched in the collective memories of football fans and celebrated as some of the most inspiring moments in the history of the National Football League."

Taylor helped the Giants win two Super Bowl titles during his Hall of Fame career.
