Despite both G.M. Tom Telesco and head coach Anthony Lynn expressing confidence in their current stable of quarterbacks, the Los Angeles Chargers could really use some additional help at the position following the departure of Philip Rivers this offseason.

Telesco expressed faith in the team’s internal options for the job last month while Lynn described remaining incumbent option Tyrod Taylor as “a heck of a quarterback.”

Meanwhile, Cam Newton is now a free agent after his release by the Carolina Panthers earlier this week. Newton would make an intriguing possible option for the Chargers to pursue, which made a posting by Taylor on his instagram account Thursday night quite interesting.

Taylor posted a photo to his instagram stories of himself and Newton working out and taking snaps together on a football field.

Perhaps the two just have a friendship and wanted to train together in the offseason. Perhaps its a teasing of what’s to come for the Chargers with both players battling for the starting job in Los Angeles next season. For now, Newton remains a free agent with the Chargers still one of the most logical landing spots for the former league MVP.

  1. Tyrod is a solid QB. It was clear to me that without him 2017’s Bills wouldn’t have got to 9-7 and a first wildcard for 18yrs. But they wanted to move on (i.e. blame him), and in 2018 they went 6-10. And Josh Allen’s 2019 improved rating (85.3) is still behind Tyrod’s 89.3 in 2017.

  2. Having 2 very capable interchangeable QB’s is an interesting concept. More times these days a QB goes down and your left with a big drop off in play. Also. the competition to be #1 is there to continue to make each other better. I like it.

  3. Tyrod is that QB that everyone sleep on, but in the end, I think he will hoist the Lombardi someday.

    Those were crazy times. There were continual posts on here from Bills fans absolutely vilifying Tyrod while at the same time arguing that Nathan Peterman needed more time even though Peterman had thrown as many INTs in a half as Tyrod had in a full season.

    taylor want going to win anything. why stay in the middle at 7-9, 8-8, 9-7? need to get a better qb, its the only way to win in this league, and thats why he was given up on

  6. Tyrod is a nice guy but not a starting NFL QB. On the same token, Anthony Lynn is an average to a below average head coach. The Chargers need to draft a QB and give Lynn one more season. If nothing improves, start over.
