Browns Sign RB Kelvin Taylor To Futures Deal

The Cleveland Browns officially signed RB Kelvin Taylor to a futures deal on Wednesday for the 2018 season.

As of now, the Browns have signed 10 players to futures deals including:

  1. WR C.J. Board
  2. LB Austin Calitro
  3. DB Trevon Hartfield
  4. WR Bug Howard
  5. RB Josh Rounds
  6. OL Victor Salako
  7. DB B.W. Webb
  8. WR Kasen Williams
  9. DL Collin Bevins
  10. RB Kelvin Taylor

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Taylor, 24, was selected in the sixth round of last year’s draft by the 49ers. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their practice squad.

San Francisco elected to cut him loose during the season and he later signed to the Seahawks’ practice squad. Seattle cut him and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Chiefs.

Unfortunately, the Chiefs cut Taylor loose a few weeks after this year’s NFL draft. He later caught on with the Falcons during the preseason but was among their final roster cuts.

During his college career at Florida, Taylor rushed for 2,108 on 486 carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with 24 receptions for 179 yards receiving and 23 total touchdowns over the course of three seasons.
