According to Mike Klis of 9NEWS Denver, the Denver Broncos have signed veteran cornerback Jamar Taylor to a one-year contract.
Taylor is added to secondary player after Chris Harris Jr.'s All-Pro Cornerback suffered a broken fibula over the Bengals' victory of the Broncos. Harris will be out at least until the postseason (if the Broncos can do it), so Taylor has some weeks left to impress the Broncos.
Former Boise State Bronco completed 10 games this year at the Arizona Cardinals to be released by the team. Taylor visited the Broncos yesterday and signed a deal today with the team.
Taylor has played six seasons in the NFL, receiving a total of 21
It is not clear what role he will play in the Broncos. I expect Bradley Roby to move to corner number one with experienced Tramaine Brock (if healthy). It's possible for Taylor to play the slot or move outside while Roby or Brock move into the slot. The Broncos also have the youngsters Isaac Yiadom and Brendan Langley in the squad.
The second patchwork of the Broncos is Nick Mullens and the San Francisco 49ers this weekend.
To make room for Taylor in the Broncos squad, they have reduced the offensive duel against Cyrus Kouandjio, which they recently signed.
