In his first comments since the Los Angeles Chargers announced a mutual parting of ways with longtime quarterback Philip Rivers, head coach Anthony Lynn said Tyrod Taylor, last year's backup, could have an opportunity to earn the starting job in 2020, Eric Williams of ESPN reports.

Lynn recently signed a one-year contract extension that puts him with the Chargers through the 2021 season, according to a source.

"Tyrod Taylor is a heck of a quarterback," Lynn told AM 570 LA Sports. "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.

"One of the things he does very well is take care of the football. I believe every year he's started in this league he's been the No. 1 quarterback in taking care of the football. I believe more games are lost than won. So if we can just take care of the football and take it away, we'll be OK."

Taylor signed a two-year, $11 million deal last offseason and will make $5 million in total compensation in 2020. The Chargers also have another mobile quarterback, Easton Stick, a fifth-round selection from last year's draft.
