Cardinals, veteran RB Taylor agree to terms

One day after Chester Taylor was cut by the Chicago Bears, the Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the veteran running back, according to a league source.

Arizona found itself thin in the backfield this preseason after rookie second-round pick Ryan Williams was lost for the year with a torn patella tendon in his right knee. Williams was a major reason the team traded Tim Hightower to the Washington Redskins and was expected to back up starter Beanie Wells.

Taylor, entering his 10th season, will now fill that role. He amassed 406 total yards and three touchdowns as Matt Forte‘s backup in his only season with the Bears in 2010.

Taylor’s best season was in 2006, when he made 15 starts with the Minnesota Vikings and rushed for 1,216 yards and six touchdowns.
