Browns pick up option on Phil Taylor


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/2/2014) The Browns on Friday exercised the fifth-year option on defensive lineman Phil Taylor ’s rookie contract. Taylor is now under contract through the 2015 season.

"It's very evident to us watching on tape and seeing him in person this week that Phil Taylor is very explosive, and he's a great fit for what we want to do on defense," said coach Mike Pettine. "I like his ability to rush the passer and be there to clog up the middle at the point of attack when we need him."

Taylor, the 21st overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, has appeared in 39 games with 38 starts. He has registered 130 tackles, seven sacks, two passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

In 2013, Taylor played and started 15 games at nose tackle in the Browns' 3-4 defense after transitioning from defensive tackle. He recorded 57 tackles, two sacks and one pass defensed, helping Cleveland finish ninth in the NFL in total defense, the team's best finish since 1994.

(4/24/2014) Nose tackle Phillip Taylor hopes the Browns pick up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, which would pay him about $5.5 million in 2015, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. Cleveland has until May 3 to exercise the option.

“I would love to be here, but that’s not up to me,” Taylor told the paper. “So we’re going to wait and see what [the front office] is going to do about it.”

Taylor started 15 games last year and finished with 57 tackles and two sacks.
