The Tennessee Titans have reportedly pulled off a trade with the Cleveland Browns involving wide receiver Taywan Taylor.
Taywan Taylor’s tenure with the Tennessee Titans is over, as the team has reportedly traded him to the Cleveland Browns for a seventh-round pick.
Taylor was a third-round pick of the Titans in 2017, but never really panned out in Tennessee. While Taylor certainly showed flashes in two seasons, his career with the Titans was up and down for sure.
Taylor totaled 53 catches for 697 yards and two touchdowns in 29 games for the Titans. He had his best season in 2018 when he finished with career-highs in catches (37) and receiving yards (466). He also scored once.

The writing was somewhat on the wall for this to happen when we found out Kalif Raymond was going to be making the 53-man roster. Raymond had consistently outplayed Taylor during the preseason and led the Titans in receiving yards in two exhibition contests.
The Titans were hoping to see Taylor take that next step this season, but his shaky preseason didn’t indicate he was going down that path. Taylor struggled with drops in the first preseason game and finished with six catches for 57 yards in total.
Raymond had more receiving yards in two of his four preseason games than Taylor had the entire slate. The Holy Cross product has also proven to be a solid returner.
Taylor didn’t play in the Titans’ preseason finale, which was an indication that he was either safe or going to be traded or cut. We thought the former was more likely, but my, how wrong we were.
Interestingly enough, Taylor won’t have to wait long to play against his now-former mates. The Browns and Titans meet in the regular season opener on September 8th in Cleveland.
Taywan Taylor’s tenure in Tennessee is over.
