The Dynamo, who already augmented Dom Kinnear's defensive options in the offseason by signing Hunter Freeman and drafting Kofi Sarkodie, now welcome the 26-year-old Taylor.
He was on trial with the club and showed well in the preseason after Kinnear and Dynamo scouts took a hard look at him in December at the Digicel Cup, which he helped Jamaica win.
Here are a couple of more items from around Major League Soccer:
RED BULLS FALL TO CHIVAS
Despite carrying a 2-0 lead into the 71st minute, the New York Red Bulls fell to Chivas de Guadalajara, 3-2, in a friendly Tuesday night at Omnilife Stadium.
Dane Richards and Juan Agudelo scored the goals for the Red Bulls, but Richards was sent off in the 85th minute after picking up his second caution in a five-minute span, and Chivas won on a stoppage-time goal from Jorge Mora.

REVOLUTION SIGN ARGENTINE DEFENDER
The New England Revolution have acquired 22-year-old Argentine defender Franco Coria on loan from Chacarita Juniors in Argentina's Primera B Nacional, according to The Boston Globe. The loan includes an option to buy at the end of the season.
The 6-foot Coria joins SuperDraft pick A.J. Soares and Re-Entry Draft pick Ryan Cochrane as incoming centerbacks for the Revolution, who yielded a league-worst 50 goals last season.
The Revolution is also awaiting the arrival of central midfielder Ousmane Dabo, who signed with the club but hasn't received his final visa that will clear him to join the team.
Do you see Taylor succeeding in Houston? Like what the Dynamo have done this offseason? What's your reaction to the Red Bulls result? How do you see Coria fitting in to the Revolution? Do you like the Dabo signing for New England?
