Texans' Vincent Taylor: Inks deal with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Texans on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Taylor will join his fourth franchise in five seasons as a professional. He's consistently been a rotational player along the defensive line, logging at least 185 snaps in all but one campaign. He's set to fill a similar role with the Texans.

Taylor (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

Browns' Vincent Taylor: Leaves with possible concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor exited Sunday's loss to the Raiders to be evaluated for a concussion, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The 26-year-old didn't record a tackle before exiting the contest. If the concussion is confirmed, Taylor will have the bye next week to clear the protocol before missing any game action.

Browns' Vincent Taylor: Scooped off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns claimed Taylor off waivers from the Bills on Sunday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Taylor has logged 24 NFL games since entering the league in 2017, recording 51 tackles, two sacks and two pass breakups. While Larry Ogunjobi and Sheldon Richardson are expected to handle the bulk of the work at defensive tackle, Taylor will battle with Jordan Elliott for the remaining reps.

Bills' Vincent Taylor: Back to healthy status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

The reserve defensive tackle can now resume trying to stake his claim for a roster spot, a quest that will be made slightly easier due to 2019 starter Star Lotulelei choosing to sit out the 2020 season.

Bills' Vincent Taylor: Placed on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The reserve defensive lineman will now enter NFL protocol pertaining to COVID-19. Taylor played in just three games with the Bills last season, accumulating six tackles.

Bills' Vincent Taylor: Gets promoted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills have been tinkering with their defensive tackle group ever since Harrison Phillips went down with a season-ending injury, and Saturday's depth move is to swap Taylor -- a former Dolphin with 21 games of NFL experience -- for Kyle Peko.

Dolphins' Vincent Taylor: Clear of season-ending injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor has fully recovered from toe surgery after landing on injured reserve in late October, Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald reports.

Taylor was recently cleared to resume football activities and is good to go for Organized Team Activities in the spring. The 25-year-old had 27 tackles (15 solo) and two sacks in eight games for the Dolphins last season, and figures to play a sizable role in the defensive line rotation in 2019.

Dolphins' Vincent Taylor: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins placed Taylor (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of reports.

Taylor was carted off the field with a foot injury during Thursday's loss to the Texans and was unable to return. The exact diagnosis hasn't been revealed yet, though the Dolphins obviously think it's serious enough to put him on IR. Expect Jamiyus Pittman to see an increased workload in Taylor's absence.

Dolphins' Vincent Taylor: Carted off with foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was carted off the field during Thursday's contest against the Texans with a foot injury and is questionable to return, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Taylor was carted off in the first half, which is certainly not a good sign for his chances of returning to the game Thursday. If he remains out, expect Jamiyus Pittman to see an increased role on the Dolphins' interior defensive line.

Dolphins' Vincent Taylor: Turning heads at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor has emerged as a standout among the defensive front through the early portion of training camp, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

Jackson, coming off a gruesome knee injury that landed him on injured reserve at the end of last season, appears to be back in full force. Entering his second season, Jackson is not a lock to make the final roster, but a strong camp has certainly helped his case moving forward.

Dolphins' Vincent Taylor: Shuffles to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins placed Taylor (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Taylor injured his knee in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and wasn't going to progress quickly enough to suit up for the season finale against the Bills. The rookie sixth-round pick compiled 18 tackles and played 185 defensive snaps in 13 games this season.

Dolphins' Vincent Taylor: Return questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs after suffering a knee injury.

Taylor suffered the injury early on in Sunday's tilt. It's unclear what the specifics of the issue are at this time. Look for Davon Godchaux to see some added snaps as the only healthy backup at defensive tackle as long as Taylor is sidelined.

Dolphins' Vincent Taylor: Headed to Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins selected Taylor in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 194th overall.

Taylor (6-foot-3, 304 pounds) looks like a very nice pick for Miami here. He totaled 21.5 tackles for loss over the last two years at Oklahoma State, and at the Combine he showed encouraging athletic metrics -- his 5.07-second 40, 108-inch broad jump, and 7.58-second three-cone drill were all good for his size.
