Cardinals acquire Jamar Taylor in trade with Browns

The Arizona Cardinals have acquired cornerback Jamar Taylor from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick, the teams announced Saturday.

Taylor, 27, started 15 games for the 0-16 Browns in 2017. He had one forced fumble and a half-sack while appearing in all 16 games.

The Browns had been trying to trade Taylor, a team captain, after they selected cornerback Denzel Ward out of Ohio State with the fourth pick in this year's draft.

Taylor could fill a need for the Cardinals, who have sought a cornerback to play opposite Patrick Peterson.

A 2013 second-round pick by the Miami Dolphins, Taylor has three career interceptions (all in 2016) over five NFL seasons. He joined the Browns in a draft-day trade in 2016.

Taylor is the sixth player traded by new general manager John Dorsey since taking over the team in December.
