The Browns exercised their fifth-year option on Taylor on Friday, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Taylor appeared in 15 games for the Browns in 2013, totaling 26 combined tackles and two sacks. He has yet to match his 2011 totals of 59 combined tackles and four sacks, but the Browns will take a chance on him nonetheless. He's a key piece of their defense at the nose guard position, but doesn't rack up enough measurable stats to warrant much fantasy consideration.
Taylor finished the 2013 season with 26 tackles (14 solo) and two sacks in 15 games played.

2014

2013

Taylor is a big physical player who will play a major role in the success of the Browns' defense in 2013. He'll be called upon to man the nose guard spot in the newly implemented 3-4 alignment and lead the unit's attempt to curtail the running game. He doesn't produce enough in the counting stats however to be a targeted asset in most IDP fantasy formats.

2012

The Browns first-round pick from a year ago enjoyed a solid rookie campaign in which he started all 16 games, registered 59 tackles, four sacks, and one forced fumble. Taylor was poised to be a nice late-round selection in IDP leagues this season before tearing his pectoral muscle in workouts. His schedule for return is unknown, but he is sure to miss a large portion of the year and at best will be placed on the PUP list to start the season.
