Chargers Signing QB Tyrod Taylor To Two-Year, $11M Deal


Ian Rapoport reports that the Chargers are signing veteran QB Tyrod Taylor to a two-year contract. 

According to Rapoport, Taylor signs a two-year contract worth $11 million and includes $6 million guaranteed in 2019. 

Recent reports had said that the Dolphins were a team to watch for Taylor, but it looks like they weren’t offering as good of an opportunity as many expected.

Taylor will now serve as Philip Rivers‘ backup for the next few years. 

Taylor, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2011. After four years in Baltimore, Taylor signed on with the Bills for the 2015 season. Buffalo elected to trade Taylor to the Browns for a third-round pick last year. 

Taylor played out the final year of a two-year, $30.5 million contract and was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. 

In 2018, Taylor appeared in four games and thrown for 473 yards while completing 49.4 percent of his passes to go along with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He has also rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown.
