Report: Tyrod Taylor could be long-term QB for Chargers
The Los Angeles Chargers have maintained that Tyrod Taylor will get the first crack at the team’s starting quarterback job, and it certainly sounds like they may be prepared to stick with him long-term.
According to Peter King of Football Morning in America, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn is “legitimately bullish” on Taylor as a possible multi-year starter at quarterback. King does report, however, that there’s a belief that general manager Tom Telesco is a fan of top quarterback prospect Justin Herbert.
Lynn knows Taylor well, having worked together in Buffalo. It’s been maintained all along that Taylor has the inside track on starting, and Lynn pretty clearly believes that he has a legitimate starting quarterback on his hands. Taylor believes that as well.
The Chargers have been linked to the likes of Cam Newton, but at least at the moment, it doesn’t seem like a legitimate possibility and Taylor is the guy. If they add a quarterback, it seems more likely that they’ll do it in the draft, not free agency.
