|For now anyway Alex Cappa Color Rush Jersey , Jamar Taylor seems the odds-on favorite to win the cornerback job opposite Patrick Peterson, a chore that’s loaded with action since that’s the direction most opponents decide to throw.
Last week, the Arizona Cardinals sent a 2020 sixth-round draft pick to Cleveland in exchange for Taylor, who started 29 games for the Browns the past two seasons.
”It means another opportunity,” Taylor said after he practiced Wednesday, the second day of the Cardinals’ voluntary workouts this week. ”Obviously, they (the Browns) didn’t have me in their plans up there. It is what it is. I felt like I did what I needed to do up there as far as help change the culture. I was very loyal to the Browns, but letting me go, it definitely puts another fire in my gut to come out here and ball out.”
First-year coach Steve Wilks said Taylor might be the leading candidate but he has to earn the job.
”I think when you look at what he’s done on paper, I think you can say that,” Wilks said, ”but once we get out on the field, it’s a clean slate for everybody.”
Taylor said he understands that.
”I’ve always got 100 percent confidence in myself,” he said. ”But at the same time Austin Corbett Jersey , you’ve got to put the work in. You can’t just come in here and be like oh, you’re going to be the guy. There’s a ton of guys in here that are really good. I’ve been watching the last couple of days. I just have to come in here and make sure I’m doing my job so I get that opportunity.”
The Cardinals think highly enough of Taylor that they released another veteran cornerback, Marcus Williams, on Monday.
Wilks is known for his work with cornerbacks. He was cornerbacks coach of the Carolina Panthers before being promoted to defensive coordinator there last season.
”I’m excited,” Taylor said. ”I’ve watched his defenses a lot. I’m a big film guy. Just seeing him when he was with Carolina, knowing him when he was with San Diego. I had some old friends that played for him. I’ve heard what type of coach he is and then seeing out there the past couple of days, it’s amazing. This whole organization is a great organization.”
Asked what he thinks of Taylor, Wilks said, ”When you look at him over the time, particularly a couple of years ago when he had his best season on the other side of (Joe) Haden, to make plays on the ball, extremely smart. He’s physical and I love the way he tackles. We take a lot of pride in that, of course I do, in making sure our cornerbacks tackle.”
Taylor’s three career interceptions came in that 2016 season opposite the longtime standout Haden and he said he welcomes the challenge of playing opposite Peterson.
”It’s just more plays for whoever’s over there http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-nathan-shepherd-jersey ,” Taylor said. ”More plays, that’s how you’ve got to look at it. More opportunities for you to get picks. When I went to Cleveland, I played opposite Joe Haden. That meant more plays that year. I made a lot of plays on the ball. Playing opposite from a guy like Pat, it’s a huge deal, you’ve got to hold your own.”
The Browns went 1-31 in Taylor’s two seasons there, but the losing didn’t wear him down, he said.
”I’ve always felt like I was a winner,” he said. ”I rarely lost in high school, didn’t really lose in college. My mindset was just worry about what I can do on the field. If that meant staying late and making sure I had my job right, that’s what it meant. I just always tried to keep the other guys together, because in the NFL you could win or lose by three points, two points, one point. Every Sunday is different.”
Taylor, and especially his wife Mackenzie Youth Lamar Jackson Jersey , are happy to be moving out West. She grew up in suburban Phoenix. He was a second-round draft choice by the Dolphins out of Boise State in 2013.
”She’s more of a topic than I am,” he said. ”We’re both excited. I’ve been waiting to play on the West Coast my whole career. I went to Miami and all the way north to Cleveland. So I’m happy to be kind of close to home. I know she’s happy to be around her family. We’re going to definitely have way more support at games now.”
— The Cleveland Browns dropped Corey Coleman.
After two disappointing, injury-slowed seasons, Coleman was traded Sunday night to the Buffalo Bills for an undisclosed draft pick.
Coleman has been a bust with the Browns, who selected him with the No. 15 overall pick in 2016 — the first selection by Cleveland’s previous, analytics-driven front office. Coleman played in just 19 games over two seasons because of injuries, and he never developed into the big-play receiver Cleveland thought it was getting, so the Browns decided to get something for him while they could.
Coleman’s tenure with the Browns will be best remembered for his drop late in the fourth quarter in last season’s finale at Pittsburgh that sealed the Browns’ 0-16 finish.
But beyond Coleman’s problems on the field, he had issues outside the lines that hurt his standing with coach Hue Jackson and new general manager John Dorsey.
Coleman was named in a police report regarding an alleged felonious assault last year. He was also sent home from the Browns’ trip to Houston for missing curfew while he was injured.
In many ways, Coleman symbolized the overall dysfunction of Cleveland’s last regime.
In 2016, former head of football operations Sashi Brown traded the No. 2 overall pick to Philadelphia, which selected quarterback Carson Wentz. Brown got back draft picks in return and used one on Coleman, a speed burner from Baylor who was considered undersized by most draft experts.
And while Coleman struggled and the Browns remained without a franchise QB, Wentz blossomed into an MVP candidate last season before suffering a knee injury.
This is the second major trade this year between the Browns and Bills. In March Oren Burks Jersey Packers , Cleveland acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo. Taylor led the Bills to a playoff berth last season and he’s expected to start for the Browns while rookie Baker Mayfield, the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft, learns and develops.
Coleman caught 56 passes for 718 yards and five touchdowns with the Browns, who are still in the market for a wide receiver.
Coleman’s departure adds another wrinkle to Cleveland’s muddled receiving situation. Former All-Pro Josh Gordon is currently not with the club in training camp as he attends to health problems, leaving Jarvis Landry as the only proven receiver atop the depth chart.
The Browns believe Gordon will be back at some point, and until he returns rookie Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins could see increased playing time.
Also, the Browns have considered signing Dez Bryant, the former Dallas star released earlier this year by the Cowboys.
Coleman should help the Bills, who are back to square one with their offense after dealing Taylor and drafting rookie quarterback Josh Allen.
Buffalo also released wide receiver Quan Bray.
