RB Taylor signs offer sheet from Browns

CLEVELAND (March 17, 2005) -- Running back Chester Taylor signed a one-year offer sheet with the Browns, a move that could signal the end of William Green's time in Cleveland.

Baltimore has until March 23 to match the offer for Taylor, a restricted free agent, Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz said. If the Ravens decline, the Browns would owe the Ravens a sixth-round draft pick.

Taylor was selected in the sixth round by the Ravens in 2003 when Browns general manager Phil Savage was Baltimore's player personnel director.

As Jamal Lewis' backup last season, Taylor ran for 714 yards and two touchdowns. He had 100-yard games three times while starting in Lewis' place.

Taylor would likely compete with Lee Suggs for the starting job in Cleveland. His addition would allow the Browns to release Green, who has been given permission to seek a trade.
