The 49ers are adding some veteran cornerback depth. They announced Monday they have agreed to terms with Jamar Taylor.

In a corresponding move, the 49ers waived former second-round corner Teez Tabor with a non-football injury designation.

Also a former second-rounder, Taylor has played seven NFL seasons — two of which with NFC West franchises, the Cardinals and Seahawks — and has bounced around the league. The 49ers will be the ex-Dolphin draftee’s seventh team.

Taylor, 30 in September, played in 12 games in 2019 — nine for the Seahawks and three for the Falcons. His last starts came for the 2018 Cardinals, but he was a regular starter with the 2016-17 Browns. Last season, Taylor played 204 defensive snaps.

The 49ers did not address their cornerback position in the draft but did pick up slot man K’Waun Williams‘ option earlier this offseason. Their top four of Richard Sherman, Williams, Ahkello Witherspoon and Emmanuel Moseley remains. Taylor now stands to compete for a depth role when the 49ers convene for camp.
