Taylor’s rookie contract with Seattle is for four years, with an annual average in the range of $1.5 million. As Pelissero noted, Taylor received a signing bonus of $2.479 million.
Taylor will join a mix of youth and experience on the edge, in a pass rush group that includes Rasheem Green, L.J. Collier, Bruce Irvin, and Benson Mayowa, among others. The former Tennessee Vol will be needed to perform as a rookie, as the Seahawks look to improve on a woeful pass rush from a year ago.
The No. 48 overall selection in this year’s draft, Taylor joins Jordyn Brooks, Colby Parkinson, and Freddie Swain as Seattle draft picks under contract. Still left to sign is Damien Lewis, DeeJay Dallas, Alton Robinson, and Stephen Sullivan. Those signings should come quickly, with rookies expected to report to the team shortly.
