Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor is learning behind Philip Rivers

The Los Angeles Chargers will begin the 2019 campaign with quite the quarterback tandem atop the depth chart. While longtime Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers will remain under center as Los Angeles’ starter, another veteran in Tyrod Taylor will notably serve as his backup, giving the AFC West franchise a formidable signal-caller off the bench.

Taylor remains eager to learn from Rivers despite the fact that the former Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns quarterback also brings a slew of NFL experience to the table.

“He brings a ton of knowledge to the game,” Taylor recently said of Rivers, via the team’s official website. “He’s played at a very high level basically his entire career. So, I’m still learning from him each and every day in the classroom and little things on the field as well.”

On the other hand, Taylor appears primed to do his part as well while serving as yet another veteran presence in the Chargers locker room.

“It definitely takes me, Philip – all the veteran guys – to shed any type of light that we have or any type [of experience we’ve had] to the younger players to get us to where we ultimately want to go, which is to win a Super Bowl,”  Taylor added.

Of course, the Chargers will be challenged yet again in 2019 with the Kansas City Chiefs still hanging around in the AFC West division. Not only that, but both the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders got significantly better this offseason as well. As a result, Los Angeles will need all the help they can get going forward.
