Cornerback Jamar Taylor is on his way to the Cardinals and it will be some time before the Browns will be able to make use of the compensation coming back their way.

Kent Somers of AZCentral.com reports that the Cardinals are sending a 2020 sixth-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for Taylor.

Taylor was set to make base salaries of $4.25 million in 2018 and $4.075 million in 2019, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Taylor agreed to restructure his contract in order to facilitate the move from Cleveland to Arizona. The new numbers aren’t known at this time.

Rapoport also reports that the deal takes the Cardinals out of the running for free agent Bashaud Breeland. Breeland visited on Thursday, but may now be on track for a deal with the Colts after meeting with Indianapolis on Wednesday.

  1. I think it’s a good trade. The Cardinals have been needing more help at corner to complement Pat P and I think Jamar Taylor has a lot of potential. I wish him well.

  2. Good for Jamar. As a group, Cleveland’s DBs were sub-par last season. Hope he does well in AZ. Like the clean sweep of the secondary and even a 2020 6th is better than nothing for cutting him. That’s what was going to happen.

  3. Another stupid move! Taylor is a solid corner and they should have kept him. Give Kizer a year with a good coach and they’ll regret letting him go also.

  4. Would someone tell Steve Keim that you show your worth as a GM by your ability to draft and develop talent?? Signing guys in free agency is the easy route, because you already know what they will be as pros. You have drafted a handful of corners since you’ve been GM. None have panned out and you’re still looking for a Corner opposite of Patrick Peterson.

  5. Just tossing more trash into that dumpster fire . . . that handed the Seahawks a season ending loss. Guess that means Seattle is the toxic waste dump.

  6. “You have drafted a handful of corners since you’ve been GM.”

    SK has taken exactly two CBs prior to 2018. Harlan Miller in the 6th round, and Brandon Williams in the 3rd round. Both were given a shot to play, both failed.

    SK did draft All-Pro David Johnson, have you heard of him?

  7. It might not be Cleveland getting rid of a corner who was solid as much as moving a player that has too much cap hit for all the players they brought in. Cutting him probably would have had a cap penalty attached.

  8. Oh Boy….Arizona gets that “final” piece to the puzzle…NOT!
    Not calling AZ a dumpster fire yet, but somethings smoking.
    I’m STILL SOOOO thankful to you guys for jumping up the board to take
    Josh Rosen… aka Ryan Leif 2.0,
    and because of that & the fact someone must’ve locked Mike Tannenbaum in the bathroom –
    My Dolphins took the BPA, and went on to have very productive draft for once!

    Unfortunately for Kiser that did not happen, see Hundley.

  10. Very good trade for the Cardinals. This guy was actually pretty good 2 seasons ago, then last year they changed up the defensive scheme and his play wasnt as good. He was ranked in the top 20 2 seasons ago. So if the Cards can put him in a scheme he plays best at, this will end up being a heck of a deal.

    This helps solidify that defense with the #2CB spot. Anyone thinking this team will be bad next year dont really follow the Cardinals much.

  11. Leave it to a Miami fan to come in and brag, on a topic that has absolutely nothing to do with Davie. But hey without a single snap in preseason, the numbers of finfans calling 10+ wins this season is crazy.

  12. The Cardinals finished 8-8 with no quarterback all season last year, I think I’d like to give them the benefit of the doubt.

    Taylor can be a starting corner and there’s a reasonable path to 10 wins if David Johnson comes back strong. I even think Rosen will be ready if Bradford doesn’t stay healthy.

  13. Every year, people talk up the Cardinals. Every year but 1, they vastly underperform the hype.

    Looks like this year is no different. And it is SO CUTE that they have 3 fans on this site to valiantly defend the team

  14. The Browns picked up EJ Gaines, T.J. Carrie, Terrance Mitchell, Drafted Denzel Ward and have Boddy-Calhoun and The First year of Howard Wilson who they are high on and was injured reserve last year.. Taylor declined and was going to get cut..

    Rosen is 100X the QB one legged Tannehill is , in 2 years from now when Rosen is a All-Pro I have a feeling you will suddenly be silent.

    Youre an obvious closet Cardinals fan, your all on those posts talking trash. Probably sitting there in a Cardinals jeresey right now. BTW the only dumpster fire in the NFC-W is that raging dumpster fire up in the NorthWest that has no defense , no pass rush , and a very weak offense.

    Quick…name a quarterback that has played in Cleveland and left to become ANYTHING significant anywhere else since 1999? There have been enough of them, SURELY one has went on to super stardom…right??? Oh, wait…they have all been below average at best (and that is being VERY generous).

    Kizer was an awful, wasted pick.
