The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Thursday that the club has signed free agent tackle Jawaan Taylor.
"First and foremost, I'd like to thank Drew Rosenhaus and his team as well as my staff for coming together to get this deal done," General Manager Brett Veach said. "Jawaan is a tough, athletic player that can play either side and gives us versatility along the line. He has four years under his belt in this league and has continued to show steady growth and improvement each season. We're happy to have him joining our offensive line room."
Taylor (6-5, 330) joins the Chiefs after four NFL seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars (2019-22). He's started all 66 games since entering the league. Taylor was named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team in 2019. Over his four seasons in Jacksonville, Taylor helped block for three 1,000-yard rushers. Taylor started two playoff games with the Jaguars, both this past season.
The Cocoa, Florida, native originally entered the NFL as a second-round pick (35th overall) with the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2019 NFL Draft. He played collegiately at Florida.
