Taylor was released by the Cardinals on Saturday.
Taylor spent all of last season with the Redskins on a one-year deal and re-upped with the team back in April. He'll now immediately be an unrestricted free agent in search of a new home.
Taylor (quadriceps) is taking part in training camp.
Taylor spent all of last season on injured reserve due to a quad injury, but after a long recovery process, which included his absence from OTAs, Taylor is back on the practice field. He was taking part in 11-on-11 drills, so the defensive lineman doesn't appear to be facing any limitations.
Taylor (quadriceps) isn't participating in the start of OTAs, John Keim of ESPN reports.
Taylor, who's recovering from a severe quad injury, resumed running and doing defensive line drills last month, but the coaching staff is evidently being cautious with his return to action. The oft-injured lineman should be on the field in time for training camp, if not sooner.
Taylor, who went down last August, is working his way back from a severe quadriceps injury in which his muscle tore off the bone. It sounds like he's made significant progress in his recovery, but there isn't a clear timeline for when he'll receive full medical clearance.
Taylor was slated to be the Redskins starting nose tackle last season after an impressive training camp, but the veteran tore his left quadricep in a preseason match with the Bengals and landed on injured reserve for the remainder of the year. If he can return to full strength, the 30-year-old should have an opportunity to compete for the starting role once again, with Ziggy Hood and Stacy McGee also vying for the spot atop the depth chart.
