ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — In the wake of Chris Harris Jr.’s leg injury, the Broncos signed veteran cornerback Jamar Taylor on Tuesday, the team announced.
The Broncos waived fifth-year tackle Cyrus Kouandjio in a corresponding move.
Taylor, a six-year veteran, played in 10 games this season for the Arizona Cardinals and recorded 17 tackles and one pass defensed. He started three of those contests.
Prior to his one-year stint with Arizona, Taylor played three years in Miami (2013-15) and two years in Cleveland (2016-17).
He was drafted by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Taylor joins Bradley Roby, Tramaine Brock, Isaac Yiadom and Brendan Langley as the healthy options in the Broncos’ cornerback room. Safety Justin Simmons played a majority of the nickel cornerback snaps on Sunday against the Bengals.
Harris said Monday he hopes to return for the Broncos’ Week 17 game against the Chargers. Head Coach Vance Joseph did not provide a timetable for Harris’ return.
