We’ll have more regarding Taylor and his options as the news is available.
- La Canfora adds that there are eight teams already interested in Taylor.
This comes just a day after the Browns surprising cut him loose as they reduced their roster down to 75 players.
Taylor, 27, was taken with the No. 21 overall pick by the Browns back in 2011, and was the last remaining player from the Julio Jones’ trade.
Cleveland wound up picked up Taylor’s fifth-year option and he was on roster first day of league year, which means his base salary of $5.477 million is fully guaranteed.
However, the Browns used another first-round pick on Danny Shelton a few months ago, so they most likely view him as a better system for them.
In 2014, Taylor appeared in just five games and recorded 10 tackles and a pass defense for the Browns.
