The San Diego Chargers have placed Brandon Taylor on the PUP list today also. Earlier in the day we shared that they would be placing Melvin Ingram on the PUP.

Taylor is recovering from his knee injury and won’t be able to jump into practice until he comes off of the PUP list. If he is able to get onto the field quickly and get into preseason games, he will be a good candidate to be starting next to Eric Weddle. Otherwise, the Chargers will be using Marcus Gilchrist at the safety position next to Weddle.

I like the idea of using Gilchrist back there with Weddle, but I would rather have some competition at the position.
