Denver Broncos[edit | edit source]
Taylor signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent on May 2, 2015. He spent his entire rookie season on the Broncos' practice squad where he was a personal receiver for Peyton Manning while Manning was rehabbing from a foot injury during the 2015 season.
In 2016, Taylor made the Broncos' 53-man roster and made his NFL debut in the season opener against the Carolina Panthers on September 8. He caught his first career NFL pass the following week against the Indianapolis Colts. On November 13, 2016, Taylor caught a 14-yard reception from Trevor Siemian for his first career touchdown during a 25–23 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
