Top Taurean Nixon News

  • Taurean Nixon: Pushed from Rams

    The Rams waived Nixon on Saturday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Nixon has only played two games in his three-year career, making one tackle. The Rams secondary is a tough one to crack, so he may get another shot elsewhere.

  • Rams' Taurean Nixon: Joins Rams

    Nixon signed a reserve/future contract with the Rams on Monday.

    Nixon reached an injury settlement with the Jaguars in early August and finished the 2017 season on the Rams practice squad. The 26-year-old played two games with the Broncos in 2016, recording one tackle.

  • Taurean Nixon: Reaches injury settlement

    Nixon (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement Tuesday and was released from the Jags' reserve/injured list, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

    This means that Nixon will be able to sign with a new team. Once he recovers from this mystery ailment, he'll likely vie for a special teams role with another squad.

  • Jaguars' Taurean Nixon: Reverts to IR

    Nixon (undisclosed) was moved to the Jaguars' injured reserve list Tuesday, Matt Kaye of the First Coast News reports.

    It still isn't clear what Nixon is dealing with, but it'll likely cost him the season unless he reaches an injury settlement.

  • Taurean Nixon: Let go by Jacksonville

    Nixon (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Jaguars on Monday.

    The nature and extent of Nixon's injury is unclear, but the Jaguars evidently felt it was something that would cause him to miss further practice time. Assuming the former seventh-round pick, who was claimed off waivers from the Broncos in June, goes unclaimed this time around, he could revert to the Jaguars' injured reserve list.

  • Jaguars' Taurean Nixon: Claimed by Jaguars

    Nixon was claimed by the Jaguars on Thursday, Mike Kils of 9News Denver reports.

    Nixon was waived by the Broncos on Wednesday. The 2015 seventh-rounder spent much of last season on Denver's practice squad before being called up and tallying one tackle in two games. He'll look to make the active roster in Jacksonville as a depth corner and special teams player in 2017.

  • Taurean Nixon: Waived by Broncos

    Nixon was waived by the Broncos on Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

    Nixon was waived in order to make room on the roster for fellow cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris. The 2015 seventh-round pick spent the majority of last season on the practice squad for the Broncos before a short stint on the active roster in the latter portion of the year. He tallied just one tackle in two games with the club.

  • Broncos' Taurean Nixon: Brought back to active roster

    Nixon signed a contract with the Broncos on Wednesday, The Denver Post reports.

    This will represent the start of Nixon's second stint with the Broncos this season as he'd previously spent time on the active roster in November when starting corner Aqib Talib was out with a back issue. This time, Nixon's signing presumably comes as a corresponding move to CB Kayvon Webster's (concussion) placement on injured reserve.

  • Broncos' Taurean Nixon: Promoted to active roster

    Nixon has been promoted to the active roster, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

    Nixon's promotion is likely due to a currently compromised Broncos defensive backfield. Aqib Talib remains out with a back injury, and veteran Kayvon Webster is questionable for Week 9 with a hamstring injury. Nixon is likely two or three injuries away from being thrust into action at cornerback, depending on Webster's availability come Sunday.

  • Broncos' Taurean Nixon: Chance at a roster spot

    Nixon has a chance to be a depth corner for the Broncos if he finishes the preseason strong, Mike Klis of 9News reports.

    Nixon was Denver's seventh round pick in 2015, but he didn't dress for a single game during his rookie season. As training camp winds down, Nixon will have a chance to earn a 53-man roster spot if he can perform well in the team's preseason finale, Thursday against Arizona.

  • Broncos' Taurean Nixon: Sidelined Tuesday

    Nixon did not practice on Tuesday for undisclosed reasons.

    Head coach Gary Kubiak would only admit that Nixon had suffered "a little nick" during Monday's session. Though the severity or location of the injury is unknown, Kubiak's lack of concern bodes well for Nixon's health going forward.
