How and When He Joined the Browns: Right before the start of the 2019 season, the Browns acquired Taylor from the Tennessee Titans in exchange for a 7th-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Productivity Level Last Season: Taylor did not make the Browns’ final roster coming out of training camp, but he was signed to the team’s practice squad. He was promoted to the team’s active roster in October. Taylor was active for only three games, but was just targeted once for an incomplete pass. He suffered a neck injury in that third game and landed on injured reserve.

Why Keeping Him Could Make Sense: Taylor had two fairly productive seasons with the Titans before joining Cleveland, and also has some experience in the return game. He also has a season under his belt in Stefanski’s offense now, albeit not during live game action.

What the Browns Should Do: Much like I said with JoJo Natson, Cleveland should also move on from Taylor. He has spent a full two seasons with the club, but you wouldn’t know it based on his stats. He should be allowed to catch on elsewhere, while that roster spot in Cleveland is used on an undrafted free agent who has a chance to provide some more upside.

Let us know below whether or not the team should try to re-sign WR Taywan Taylor.
