The Dolphins on Saturday gave Jamar Taylor what he needed: a fresh start.
Miami traded the former second-round pick to the Cleveland Browns Saturday.
The Dolphins’ compensation: moving up 27 spots in the seventh round.
Taylor battled injuries and inconsistency during his time in Miami; first a sports hernia and then a major shoulder injury.
He fell out of favor with the former coaching staff late in the season, and hardly saw the field. Taylor became expendable after the Dolphins drafted Xavien Howard in the second round Saturday.
Taylor finishes his three-year Dolphins career with nine starts, 82 tackles but no interceptions.
