CB - SF
Week 17 Outlook
Free agent cornerback Jamar Taylor signed with the Broncos on Tuesday. Taylor adds cornerback depth after Chris Harris Jr. suffered a broken leg in Week 13.
Taylor was released by the Cardinals in November. He recorded 17 tackles and one pass defensed in 10 games (three starts) for Arizona.
Arizona Cardinals' CB Jamar Taylor recorded five solo tackles in their Week 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
This continued a trend from Week 1 for Taylor, where opposing WRs burn him repeatedly and he makes a tackle several yards after the catch. Taylor is a huge weak link in real life, but could be a consistent source of tackles from the CB position if he continues to get picked on like this.
Cardinals beat writer Kent Somers is reporting that the Browns have traded cornerback Jamar Taylor to the Cardinals in exchange for a sixth-round pick in 2020.
It's very little compensation for a starting-caliber cornerback, but the Browns rebuild of the secondary is near completion. After trading away Jason McCourty to the Patriots and Taylor to the Cardinals, the Browns secondary will now be led by Denzel Ward, E.J. Gaines, and T.J. Carrie, who were all acquired this offseason. As for Taylor, he should walk into a starting role immediately with the Cardinals, as they were severely lacking talent at the position outside Patrick Peterson.
Cleveland Browns defensive back Jamar Taylor was busy during his team's 24-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Taylor led the team with nine combined tackles (eight solo).
Taylor made six total tackles in Week 1. He should continue to see heavy work as opposing offenses attack a vulnerable Cleveland pass defense through the air.
The Dolphins have traded CB Jamar Taylor to the Cleveland Browns. In exchange, the Dolphins move up 27 spots from pick No. 250 to pick No. 223 in the seventh round.
The Dolphins have tried to address issues at corner during the offseason by acquiring Byron Maxwell to replace Brent Grimes. They also drafted Xavien Howard from Baylor in the second round (38) and Penn State's Jordan Lucas (204) in the sixth. Taylor routinely failed to perform at a high level and was often targeted by opposing offenses as a result.
