49ers Sign Trent Taylor To One-Year Deal

The San Francisco 49ers signed free-agent wide receiver Trent Taylor to an undisclosed one-year deal on Tuesday. It will be a reunion between the two sides after the Niners selected Taylor in the fifth round (177th overall) in 2017 out of Louisiana Tech. The 29-year-old pass-catcher spent the first three years of his NFL career in the Bay Area before two years with the Cincinnati Bengals. He went catchless on two targets in 17 games (zero starts) for the Chicago Bears in 2023. Taylor is most likely to pitch in on special teams for the 49ers after Ray-Ray McCloud left in free agency this offseason. In his six NFL seasons, Taylor has 87 receptions on 137 targets for 834 yards and three touchdowns, with most of the production coming in his first two seasons with the 49ers.

Bears Sign Trent Taylor

The Chicago Bears are signing wide receiver/punt returner Trent Taylor, who was cut by the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday, to their 53-man roster on Wednesday, according to a source. The Bears also claimed defensive end Khalid Kareem off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts and defensive back Quindell Johnson from the Los Angeles Rams and cut defensive end Terrell Lewis. Taylor will serve as a return option and as receiver depth for the Bears to open the 2023 regular season. The 29-year-old had 340 yards on punt returns in 2022 in Cincinnati. He's not on the fantasy radar.
