Tom Telesco: I like our internal options at quarterback

The speculation over Tom Brady liking the Instagram post on Philip Rivers‘ split with Chargers is another sign that the NFL’s silly season is alive and well.

The Chargers will start a quarterback in Week One.

Who that quarterback will be remains a question without an answer. Perhaps the Chargers don’t yet know.

Every big-name free agent quarterback will be linked to the Chargers at some point this offseason. But could it be possible that the Chargers would let Tyrod Taylor and Easton Stick battle it out for the starting job?

That doesn’t rule out the Chargers considering their options among the free agent quarterbacks and the draft prospects. It would rank as a surprise if the Chargers didn’t either sign a free agent quarterback or draft one.

  1. Lies. Neither is their starter in the new stadium this year. What they should do is draft a LT this year and bite the bullet with a near O’fer next season to get in position to draft Clemson’s Lawrence in 2021. Set for the next 10-12yrs…

  2. Build your O Line in the draft and Free agency this year. Get some young skill position players. Add to a pretty good defence. Take Lawrence next yr. Set for 5-10 yrs.

  3. MG let the team down last year, let him go. Sign Joey Bosa & Hunter Henry to long term contracts. Sign Chiefs FA DT Carter & best FA OT. Draft best OT, LB, Speedy WR, DT, CB. Find another undrafted RB gem. Name Tyrod Taylor the starter and let him practice with the 1st string. Pray everyone stays healthy. Can’t wait to see my Bolts perform under the Oculas.
