Bolts meet up with a possible backup QB option

The Chargers current backup quarterback, Billy Volek, may be looking to test the free agency market to see if he can get a starting gig somewhere else and the Bolts would need to start looking at some possible replacements through the draft or free agency. They met with possible draft pick, Virginia Tech QB Tyrod Taylor, prior to his pro day. Taylor was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Year for 2010 and is considered a third- to fifth-round draft pick.

Taylor is a different type of quarterback that we are used to in San Diego. He can escape the pocket and make plays in the open field with his legs.

Maybe the Chargers are just looking at him as a replacement for WR Legedu Naanee. Naanee was a former quarterback that was converted to play wide receiver and he was also used in our version of the “wildcat” offense.

If Taylor can make plays, them Norv Turner will find a way to get him in the offense and use him.

If Billy Volek leaves, then the Chargers will more likely look through free agency in order to fill the backup quarterback role. We wouldn’t want a young rook to be relied upon if Rivers were to go down. If Taylor were drafted by us, it would be as a 3rd quarterback.
