The Dolphins and Jamar Taylor on Wednesday finalized a four-year, $3.6 million contract that will pay roughly $2 million in guaranteed money, The Miami Herald has learned.

Taylor, a second-round pick in April’s NFL Draft, is the team’s highest draft pick to sign his rookie deal. Defensive end/linebacker Dion Jordan, the No. 3 overall pick, remains unsigned.

Taylor was back at practice Wednesday after undergoing sports hernia surgery last week, but was unable to participate.

The cornerback said he’s unsure if he will be healed in time for minicamp June 11-13, but he expects to be ready for the start of training camp in late July.

“As long as I’m back healthy and I’m back running, I’m going to try to make it happen from there,” said Taylor, who added that the need for surgery was a bit of a surprise.

“It adds fuel to the fire,” he said.

Wallace absent

Star receiver Mike Wallace missed the Dolphins’ organized team activities Wednesday because he was dealing with a family emergency.

The practice was voluntary, but Wallace had attended the one session open to the media last week, making his absence Wednesday noticeable.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin has a policy of not speaking about players not at OTAs, and stood by that policy Wednesday. Armon Binns took Wallace’s repetitions with the first-team offense and had an up-and-down day marred by drops.

In fact, nearly the entire passing game had an off day Wednesday, with the defense taking it to the offense.

In a span of five snaps during 11-on-11 drills, Ryan Tannehill had a potential interception dropped by Philip Wheeler and threw an interception that Koa Misi returned for a touchdown.

About the only receiver making plays was Rishard Matthews, who made a tough catch in traffic and then caught a touchdown pass on a go route over Richard Marshall.

“I was a defensive coach [Wednesday],” Philbin joked during his media session after practice.
