He’s the fifth and final member of the Saints’ 2022 draft class to sign their rookie deal.
Taylor, 23, was originally a wide receiver before converting to cornerback during his time at Tennesee. He opted to sit out the 2021 Music City Bowl in preparation for the draft. The Saints used the No. 49 overall pick in the second round on him in the 2022 NFL Draft.
He’s projected to sign a four-year $7,204,684 contract that includes a $2,419,770 signing bonus.
During his four-year career at Tennesee, Taylor recorded 162 tackles, four interceptions, 15 pass deflections, and one touchdown.
