While he was an up-and-down, full-time starter in Buffalo for three seasons, Taylor represents high-end backup insurance for the Chargers. Signing in L.A. to play behind Rivers, who hasn't missed a start since taking over in 2006, signals that there wasn't much interest in teams signing Taylor to compete for a starting gig. Inking with a potential Super Bowl contender, however, is a stellar destination.
The Miami Dolphins were one possible landing spot rumored for Taylor to compete for a starting gig. Instead, the 29-year-old will head to a different warm-weather destination on the coast to caddie for Rivers.
