Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor remains the favorite to start opposite Brent Grimes.

The Dolphins wanted to upgrade Taylor, but didn't take a cornerback until the 145th pick of the draft (Bobby McCain). Taylor is facing competition from Zack Bowman and potentially Will Davis. Davis is recovering from a torn ACL, and isn't expected to practice before training camp.

The Dolphins are looking "very closely" at potential upgrades on current projected starting RCB Jamar Taylor.

The 54th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Taylor was a disappointment his first two seasons and is currently recovering from a torn labrum in his shoulder. The Fins have hosted Trae Waynes (Michigan State), Jalen Collins (LSU), and Kevin Johnson (Wake Forest) for pre-draft visits, while reportedly considering making a trade offer for Philadelphia's Brandon Boykin.

Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor recently underwent shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum.

Taylor originally hurt his shoulder in Week 12 and aggravated the injury again in Week 16 before ending the season on injured reserve. He expects to be ready for OTAs. Taylor should compete for a starting job in training camp.
Jan 14 - 10:08 AM

Dolphins placed CB Jamar Taylor on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Taylor missed Weeks 13-15 before returning for Sunday's win over the Vikings. Evidently, he tweaked his shoulder. A second-year second rounder, Taylor made only three starts this season, and generally struggled in coverage across 299 snaps. Taylor could be given a chance to earn a starting job in 2015, but will likely be relegated to a reserve role.

Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 13.

The Fins will also be without Cortland Finnegan (ankle), most likely, after he missed Friday's practice. Miami will likely have to turn to practice squad-types Lowell Rose and R.J. Stanford to play significant snaps on Monday Night Football against the Jets. It's a good thing the Dolphins are playing the Jets.

Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor was forced from Miami's Week 12 game against the Broncos with a shoulder injury, and will not return.

It's a huge loss for a Dolphins team already missing Cortland Finnegan (ankle). Taylor was in a ton of pain after getting tangled up with Demaryius Thomas, and could possibly be done for the season.

Jamar Taylor is competing for the Dolphins' No. 2 cornerback job.

Taylor played just 45 snaps during his injury-filled rookie season, but the Dolphins remain high on his long-term outlook. He made "several standout plays" in OTAs and is in the mix to start opposite Brent Grimes. Cortland Finnegan opened training camp at right cornerback, but could be moved to the slot.

Coach Joe Philbin said second-year CBs Jamar Taylor and Will Davis "will be given every chance" to beat out Cortland Finnegan for the starting job opposite Brent Grimes.

Aside from Grimes, the depth chart at cornerback in Miami is a muddied mess. Finnegan is coming off a horrendous season with the Rams and appeared near done. He battled injury issues, but so did both Taylor and Davis as rookies. Taylor was the 54th overall pick last year but played just 45 defensive snaps. He has decent size at 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds. Finnegan is best in the slot.

Dolphins second-year CB Jamar Taylor told the Idaho Statesman that he considered quitting football during his disappointing rookie season.

Last year's 54th overall pick, Taylor was part of a Jeff Ireland draft class that provided the team with next to nothing in 2013. Taylor only got on the field for 45 defensive snaps. "It was to the point last year I thought I was done playing football," he said. "I didn’t want to play anymore. I was out of it. Thank God for my girlfriend, my family, my pastors and God — because I made it through and kept working. I’m really looking forward to this year."

A member of the Dolphins staff informed the Miami Herald that the team remains high on second-year CB Jamar Taylor.

Taylor played just 45 defensive snaps as a rookie this past season. The 54th overall pick in last April's draft needed sports hernia surgery in May, and his long recovery from that is cited as one of the main reasons Taylor didn't see the field in 2013. The Dolphins will look to lock up free agent CB Brent Grimes, but they'll still need another starter with Nolan Carroll also a free agent.

Dolphins declared CB Jamar Taylor, OG David Arkin, S D.J. Campbell, CB Justin Rogers, QB Pat Devlin, DT A.J. Francis and OG Danny Watkins inactive for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

It's a quiet list for the Dolphins, who enter Week 15 as one of the healthiest teams in the league.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 11:37:00 AM

Dolphins second-round CB Jamar Taylor (groin) was limited to side work at practice Monday.

Taylor missed all of training camp due to setbacks from his May sports hernia surgery and is "not in the plans right now" for early-season playing time. He's currently listed as the Dolphins' sixth cornerback and expected to be inactive for Week 1. Third-round pick Will Davis (ankle) was also unable to practice.

Dolphins second-round CB Jamar Taylor is "not in the plans right now" for early-season playing time.

The 54th pick in April's draft, Taylor has missed a ton of camp due to setbacks from his May sports hernia surgery. First-rounder Dion Jordan (shoulder) may not be healthy enough for Week 1, and third-round OL Dallas Thomas has been manhandled by defensive linemen in preseason games. It's likely GM Jeff Ireland's 2013 draft class will open the season only getting meaningful contributions from blocking TE Dion Sims and K Caleb Sturgis.
