Chargers give up on Brandon Taylor

In the last year of G.M. A.J. Smith’s tenure with the Chargers, he picked safety Brandon Taylor in round three.  In the second year of G.M. Tom Telesco’s time with the team, the Chargers are moving on.

The Chargers have announced that Taylor has been waived.  He appeared in four games with one start as a rookie.  In that lone start, Taylor suffered a knee injury, which resulted in his placement on injured reserve.  Last year, he was inactive for 16 regular-season games and both playoff games.

“We’d like to thank Brandon for his work and contributions to the Chargers and wish him the best as he continues his career,” Telesco said.

He’ll pass through waivers, since he has less than four years of NFL service.  If Taylor clears waivers, he’ll become a free agent.

    watch for falcons. SD took him when they heard KC wanted to, and jumped them for Taylor. I can see Pioli going after him, as he has chased everyone he got/tried to get at KC

    Can someone remind me how many super bowls the Charges have won? I can never seem to remember.

    Tough break for this guy. He has been injury plagued, but when healthy can game.
    I believe this is the first thing to happen before Chargers sign Brandon Flowers to the ‘D’ backfield.

    The raiders super bowl victories came before most of their fans were alive, yet they still brag about them. Win more than 8 games and we’ll talk about being relevant again.

    @silverandblack As is frequently the case, a Raiders fan has thrown their Super Bowls from three decades ago into a conversation where they aren’t relevant.

    If this was a discussion about which teams were good 30+ years ago, those Super Bowls would certainly have something to do with the conversation. But alas, this is an article about a player released in 2014, doesn’t involve the Raiders, and doesn’t involve the 70’s and early 80’s.

    3 is always better than zero, loser.
