The Browns today made a big signing, as the team inked cornerback Jamar Taylor to a three-year extension.
Getting Taylor under contract means that he won’t reach free agency after the season. Various reports say that Taylor’s deal is worth $15 million, including a $3 million signing bonus. It will pay him $10.5 million over the first two years of the deal.
“Jamar has been a really good addition to our secondary and we’re happy to come to an agreement with him on an extension,” said Cleveland Browns Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown in a statement released by the team. “He’s an extremely hard worker and has shown true perseverance throughout his NFL career.
“His veteran presence and flexible skill set that allows him to function at nickel and corner has proved to be a valuable asset to our team. Jamar is a solid performer that has made some nice plays for us over the course of season and we look forward to him contributing to Browns victories in the future.”
