Taylor signed with the Eagles back in February after he spent the 2020 season watching from the sidelines, having opted out due to COVID-related reasons. The New York Giants parted ways with him after the season closed and the Eagles pounced on a DB who entered the league in 2019 and worked under Jonathan Gannon.
As a UDFA, he appeared for 5 games in Indianapolis as a rookie, logging 7 tackles and a pass defense. He was brought in to fill some depth needs when the position was a down to its bare bones. Since then, the Eagles have acquired Steven Nelson and drafted Zech McPhearson. They still have a young and unproven CB room beneath the starters, but at this stage and without a strong training camp performance to convince coaches otherwise, he was surplus to requirement.
