Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Tyrod Taylor is in "the driver's seat" to start this upcoming season.
"He’s in the driver's seat, but nothing is finalized," Lynn said. The Chargers have all but screamed from the mountaintops that there's no interest in adding Cam Newton under center, leaving Taylor, who previously commanded Lynn's league-leading rushing attack with the Bills in 2016, and fifth-round sophomore Easton Stick to compete for reps under center. With organized offseason activities and perhaps even training camp unlikely to occur, the 30-year-old veteran remains the favorite to get the nod if only for his past experience under Lynn's tutelage. With an improved O-line and a mass of proven talent surrounding him — not to mention the standalone rushing floor he offers — Taylor garners late-round consideration in any offseason Best-Ball leagues. The Chargers are still fully expected to add a Day 1 rookie under center in April's draft. Apr 01 3:14 pm (EST)
