In his third start in the NFL, Taliafero had 91 quick yards in a 23-21 win over the Cleveland Browns. This is the highest total of his career.
In 2017, Taliafero tried his luck at the center-back position, but was dropped from the squad at the start of the season. After a full year off the football field, he joined the CFL in 2018 as a defensive player.
