Anthony Lynn impressed with Tyrod Taylor, a possible replacement for Philip Rivers

For the first time in more than a decade, the Los Angeles Chargers are without a starting quarterback.

Head coach Anthony Lynn, however, may not have to look far to find his replacement for Philip Rivers — who organization parted ways with this month after 16 years together.

“Tyrod Taylor is a heck of a quarterback,” Lynn said on AM 570 LA Sports on Thursday, via ESPN. “We couldn't have a better backup right now, and now he has an opportunity to maybe step up into a starting role. I've had Tyrod before [in Buffalo], and I know what this young man brings to the table, in the passing game and the running game.
