NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Chargers are not expected to sign or trade for a veteran quarterback, per sources informed of the decision.
The news could signal the Chargers' desire to draft a quarterback with the No. 6 overall pick or trade up to snag one. After the Cincinnati Bengals take presumptive top pick Joe Burrow No. 1 overall, Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa and Oregon's Justin Herbert could be among rookie signal-callers the Chargers could pursue.
Coach Anthony Lynn has consistently praised Taylor's leadership and ability to run the offense. Taylor had his best seasons with Lynn in Buffalo. The 30-year-old quarterback's mobility could mesh with the type of run-first offense L.A. seeks to employ in 2020 after trading for guard Trai Turner and signing free agent right tackle Bryan Bulaga.
