I remember the debate when he was on the HoF ballot, and the reasoning given that it did not matter was because of his football career.
Here's some info about his use during his career:
Taylor has lived a controversial lifestyle, during and after his playing career. He admitted to using drugs such as cocaine as early as his second year in the NFL, and was suspended several times by the league for failing drug tests.
