Team Needs – DT: Depth for Phil Taylor

Like most of Cleveland’s front-seven, the defensive tackle position is in fairly good hands. Phil Taylor, a first round selection entering his fourth season, is the man whom Browns fans will be trusting to dictate the center of the line of scrimmage, and by all accounts he is the right man for the job.

While it is a nice story, there’s no doubt that it would be an even better one if they were coming in to spell Taylor rather than filling in for him...
