Former Boise State cornerback Jamar Taylor has signed with the Miami Dolphins but remains sidelined because of surgery to repair a sports hernia.
Taylor received a four-year, $3.6 million deal with $2 million guaranteed, according to the Miami Herald.
Taylor, a second-round draft pick, is missing the current round of organized team activities (OTAs) because of the sports hernia. He hasn’t ruled out participating in the team’s mini-camp June 11-13 but might have to wait until training camp to get back on the field.
“As long as I’m back healthy and I’m back running, I’m going to try to make it happen from there,” said Taylor, who added that the need for surgery was a bit of a surprise.
“It adds fuel to the fire,” he said.
