Jordan Taylor has signed with the Minnesota Vikings, per Benjamin Allbright.

A former fan-favorite in the Mile High City – the lanky wide receiver earned the nickname “Sunshine” for his golden locks of hair – and won over the fans with athletic plays in Training Camp.¬†Endorsed by revered football minds like Peyton Manning and Gary Kubiak, Taylor made a name for himself by grinding in practice.

In limited action between the 2016 and 2017 seasons, Taylor totalled 45 receptions and hauled in two touchdowns. Unfortunately for Taylor, the former Rice University star struggled to stay healthy and never received regular playing time Рespecially after Kubiak was no longer in the picture. Taylor will now have an opportunity to rejoin his former head coach in Minnesota, though.
