The San Francisco 49ers today announced they had signed CB Jamar Taylor to a one-year deal. To make room on the roster, the team waived/Non-Football Injury CB Teez Tabor.

The Miami Dolphins originally drafted Taylor (5-11, 192) in the second round (54th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. Throughout his seven-year NFL career with the Dolphins (2013-15), Cleveland Browns (2016-17), Arizona Cardinals (2018), Denver Broncos (2018), Seattle Seahawks (2019) and Atlanta Falcons (2019), he has appeared in 90 games (41 starts) and registered 236 tackles, 31 passes defended, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and 0.5 sack. In 2019 with the Seahawks and Falcons, he saw action in 12 games and finished with 21 tackles, and three passes defended.

A 29-year-old native of La Mesa, CA, Taylor attended Boise State University. In five seasons with the Broncos (2008-12), he played in 48 games (35 starts) and registered 137 tackles, 18 passes defended, seven interceptions, six forced fumbles, and 5.0 sacks. As a senior in 2012, he earned First-Team All-Mountain West honors after starting 13 games and finishing with 51 tackles; nine passes defended, four interceptions, three forced fumbles, and 2.5 sacks.

Taylor played 194 snaps for the Seahawks in 2019. He allowed 27 of his 40 targets to be completed. Taylor finished the year with three pass breakups and three penalties against him while giving up one touchdown.

Tabor (6-0, 201) signed with San Francisco on February 4, 2020, after spending the majority of the 2019 season on the team’s practice squad.
