Taylor joined the Bengals as a college free agent following the 2013 NFL draft. Taylor completed his career at Virginia Tech with 16.5 quarterback sacks and 33.5 tackles for loss, as well as an Honorable Mention on the All-ACC team as a junior and senior.
Interestingly enough, Taylor replaces Dontay Moch, who the Cardinals promoted the 53-man roster earlier this week. Taylor, who was featured oh HBO's Hard Knocks, alongside Jayson DiManche as both rookies were trying to make the 53-man roster, struggled to get snaps on the field behind a stacked roster of linebackers (at the time). Taylor played three preseason games and posted ten tackles.
