New Cardinals cornerback Taylor looks to earn starting job
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — For now anyway, Jamar Taylor seems the odds-on favorite to win the cornerback job opposite Patrick Peterson, a chore that's loaded with action since that's the direction most opponents decide to throw.
Last week, the Arizona Cardinals sent a 2020 sixth-round draft pick to Cleveland in exchange for Taylor, who started 29 games for the Browns the past two seasons.

PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals are finalizing a trade that would bring cornerback Jamar Taylor from the Cleveland Browns, two people with knowledge of the situation said Friday.

Yanda inactive for Ravens against Browns
BALTIMORE (AP) — Five-time Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda has been placed on the inactive list by the Baltimore Ravens for their Thursday night game against the Cleveland Browns.
Yanda has been dealing with a shoulder injury for much of the season. He returned from a two-game absence to play last week against Pittsburgh.

CLEVELAND — The most important play of the Jets’ 31-28 win Sunday may have been an incomplete pass.
Ryan Fitzpatrick’s first throw of the second half should have been intercepted. Jamar Taylor had it in both of his hands, and it would have been a devastating blow for a Jets team that had played awfully and trailed, 20-7.
But receiver Quincy Enunwa got his hand on the ball and pried it loose, before Taylor could come down with it.
Browns cornerback Joe Haden questionable for Sunday’s game
