Chargers sign QB Tyrod Taylor to 2-year deal

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. With Geno Smith listed as an unrestricted free agent, the team needed a backup quarterback to Philip Rivers and the Bolts got just that with Taylor.

Taylor was dealt from the Bills to the Browns in the offseason past year.

Taylor, however, left the third game of the season against the Jets with a concussion, and Baker Mayfield took over and guided the Browns to their first win since Christmas Eve of 2017. In his short-lived career (three games) in Cleveland, he threw for 473 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, and completed 49.4 percent of his passes. He also earned $16 million - $6 million in a roster bonus - and was the Browns' most expensive player under the salary cap in 2018.
