Broncos sign CB Jamar Taylor, waive OT Cyrus Kouandjio

Denver adds a little depth to its secondary with cornerback Chris Harris Jr. out for a few weeks with a fractured leg

Denver coach Vance Joseph said Monday the team wouldn't need to sign a cornerback because Chris Harris Jr. was not going on injured reserve. The Broncos must have changed their minds because they added Jamar Taylor to the squad to add depth to the secondary.

To make room on the roster Denver waived tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.

The 5-foot-11, 192-pound Taylor is a sixth-year cornerback out of Boise State University. He has played in 74 NFL games, most recently with Arizona this season. He also played with Cleveland (2016-17) and Miami (2013-15). He recorded 17 tackles (15 solo) and one pass defensed in 10 games with the Cardinals this season after being acquired from Cleveland in an offseason trade.

The Cardinals released Taylor on Nov. 19.

Selected by Miami in the second round (54th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft, Taylor has totaled 214 tackles (173 solo), three interceptions, 28 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery during his career. He was traded from Miami to Cleveland during the 2016 NFL Draft and played 31 games -- 29 of them starts -- with the Browns.
