Taylor was promoted to the 49ers' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Taylor was added to the practice squad at the end of September and was elevated as an extra player for Week 4, and he'll now join the active roster in a longer-term capacity. The 30-year-old appeared in nine games last year for Seattle and had 22 tackles and three passes defensed.
The 49ers are expected to add Taylor to the practice squad Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Taylor spent time in San Francisco during the offseason, and he'll now rejoin the team as an emergency cornerback. If K'Waun Williams (hip) ends up unable to play against the Eagles on Sunday, Taylor could be promoted to the active roster.
Taylor signed a one-year deal with the 49ers on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The 29-year-old cornerback has bounced around the league with four different teams since he made 29 starts for Browns in 2016 and 2017. Taylor will need to battle for a depth spot in San Francisco.
Taylor signed with the Seahawks on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Taylor worked with the Seahawks this offseason but was cut before Week 1. Seattle could clearly use the help in the secondary after getting diced up by Andy Dalton for 418 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener. Furthermore, the Seahawks didn't use a nickelback in that game, opting to instead use linebackers to cover wide receivers. Taylor could work in immediately as a nickel corner, bolstering the team's secondary before Week 2's matchup versus the Steelers.
Taylor was ejected from Saturday night's game against the Browns after making contact with Cleveland's Breshard Perriman after a play, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports. Taylor becomes the third Broncos cornerback to leave the game. Brendan Langley left earlier with a concussion, then Bradley Roby left with a facial laceration.
