Draft Scout Phil Taylor News
09/01/15 - DT Phil Taylor had his contract terminated by the Browns with an injury settlement Tuesday (Sept. 1). He was slow to recover from knee surgery last season. The Browns believe with the additions made to the defensive line, particularly first-round draft pick Danny Shelton, they could absorb the loss of Taylor despite owing him nearly $5.5 million in guaranteed money. Taylor, picked 21st in the 2011 draft, played all 16 games as a rookie but after that was limited to eight games in 2012, 15 in 2013 and five last season because of injuries.
