The Broncos have a new tackle in town, announcing the signing of free agent Herb Taylor on Wednesday. After leaving last Sunday’s game at Kansas City, Ryan Harris was also placed on injured reserve with a toe injury.
A third-year tackle, Taylor entered the league with the Chiefs as a sixth-round pick in then 2007 NFL Draft. He was waived by Kansas City at the end of the team’s 2009 training camp.
Taylor appeared in 18 games for the Chiefs, including all 16 contests last season. As a rookie in 2007, he appeared in two contests, was inactive for 11 games and dressed but did not play in three games.
A college stalwart at Texas Christian University, Taylor earned first-team All-Mountain West recognition during both his junior and senior seasons. He set a school record by making 48 consecutive starts and helped the Horned Frogs to a win in the Poinsettia Bowl during his senior season.
