Taylor, 6-3, 295 pounds, was originally a sixth-round draft choice by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2007. In two seasons with the Chiefs, Taylor played in 18 games with one start (at left tackle on Oct. 5, 2008 at Carolina). Although he has primarily played left tackle in this career, has also filled in at the guard and tackle spots on the right side.
Taylor was waived by Kansas City on Sept. 4, 2009 and signed by Denver on Dec. 9. He was on the active roster for one game (Dec. 13 at Indianapolis) but did not play. He was waived by the Broncos on Dec. 19 before being re-signed on Dec. 29 and waived again on Jan. 2, 2010.
As a collegian at Texas Christian, Taylor started a school-record 48 games in his career (the first 36 at right tackle, the final 12 at left tackle). He earned All-Mountain West honors as a senior.
Taylor is expected to compete for a backup position on New York's offensive line.
