The Browns announced the release of Taylor on Tuesday.
The Steelers are looking for help on their defensive line. Outside of Cameron Heyward, no one on Pittsburgh's depth chart on the defensive line recorded more than one sack last season.
Taylor is a former first-round pick, taken No. 21 overall by Cleveland in 2011 draft. He played in only five games last season due to a knee injury.
In 44 career NFL games, Taylor has seven sacks, including four during his rookie season.
The Steelers will open the NFL's regular season against the New England Patriots on Sept. 10.
