The Steelers have sat down with recently released former first-round pick DT Phil Taylor, who was released on Tuesday by the Cleveland Browns. Pro Football Talk has the story:
On Tuesday, the Browns gave defensive tackle Phil Taylor $5.477 million to not play for the Browns. The Steelers may now be paying Taylor even more to not play for the Browns.
Per a league source, Taylor visited the Steelers on Wednesday.
It was only a visit, but it could lead to something more, given that the Steelers could use any help they can get on defense.
A first-round pick in 2011, Taylor asked to be released by the Browns after Danny Shelton emerged as a starter. The Browns made no request that Taylor reduce the money he’s owed or agree to provide any offset in exchange for his freedom.
