Fins Sign Second-Round Pick Jamar Taylor
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Dolphins continued to sign their picks from the 2013 Wednesday when the team inked a deal with second-round pick, cornerback Jamar Taylor.
According to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald, Taylor and the Fins agreed to a four-year, $3.6 million contract, of which approximately $2 million is guaranteed. Taylor is the highest draft pick of the Dolphins to sign this year.
Taylor has been at practice with the team, but has been unable to participate since he had surgery on a ports hernia last week. Taylor, who played collegiately at Boise State, could challenge for a starting spot as the nickel cornerback as soon as he is healthy.
The Dolphins have been lining up with Richard Marshall and Brent Grimes as the team’s starting cornerbacks during offseason team activities. Taylor said he hopes to be ready for the Dolphins next minicamp starting June 11.
As for the team’s top pick, Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan, his signing could become problematic if the Dolphins take the same approach they took last year. The Dolphins refused to drop offset language in first round pick Ryan Tannehill’s contract last year and could do the same again.
