Niners Re-Sign Taylor

Compiled From Wire Services

The San Francisco 49ers signed wide receiver John Taylor to a two-year contract based heavily on incentives.

Taylor had been waived so the 49ers could make room under the salary cap for, among others, first-round draft pick J.J. Stokes and restricted free agent Dana Stubblefield.

Under Taylor’s new contract, he will have a base salary of $300,000 for the 1995 season and could make up to $1.7 million if he performs as well as he did in 1994. His base salary for 1996 is $1.3 million.

The Houston Oilers have come to terms with former Washington State University cornerback Torey Hunter, one of their third-round draft picks.
