Tyrod Taylor agrees to sign with Chargers
Tyrod Taylor had been mentioned as one of the only potential starting quarterback options remaining on the free agent market this week, but the veteran has taken a job as a backup for the 2019 season.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Taylor has agreed to sign a two-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Taylor will serve as the primary backup to Philip Rivers, who proved last season that he is still capable of playing at a very high level. The most interesting aspect of the Taylor signing is how it impacts the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins have been expected to move on from Ryan Tannehill this offseason, but they have now seen three potential starting QBs — Taylor, Nick Foles and Teddy Bridgewater — sign elsewhere. A report earlier in the week claimed they were making Taylor one of their top targets, so you have to wonder if they will end up sticking with Tannehill, after all.
