Broncos Place NT Phil Taylor On I.R. & Sign DE Billy Winn

The Denver Broncos announced that they’ve placed NT Phil Taylor on injured reserve and signed DE Billy Winn to a contract.

Taylor, 28, was taken with the No. 21 overall pick by the Browns back in 2011, but was one of the more notable roster cuts at start of last season.

Cleveland wound up picked up Taylor’s fifth-year option and he was on roster first day of league year, which fully guaranteed his base salary of $5.477 million. However, Taylor was reportedly dealing with knee issues that led to the Browns moving on.

The Broncos signed him to a contract in February.

In 2014, Taylor appeared in just five games and recorded 10 tackles and a pass defense for the Browns.

Winn, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Browns back in 2012. He spent over three years in Cleveland befor he was traded to the Colts in return for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2017.

In 2015, Winn appeared in 12 games for the Colts and recorded 14 tackles, no sacks and two fumble recoveries.
