It was just one year ago that Tyrod Taylor was traded to the Cleveland Browns with the expectation of becoming the team's starting quarterback.
As it turns out, the Taylor era in Cleveland will have lasted all of 2.5 games.
After starting just three games for the Browns last season, Taylor has agreed to a 2-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. There, he will back up 37-year-old Phillip Rivers, who is entering his 16th season in the NFL.
Despite possessing lofty expectations upon his arrival, Taylor's time in Cleveland was largely unmemorable. After tallying one tie and one loss in the first two weeks of the season, the 29-year-old left the team's Week 3 matchup with the New York Jets after suffering a concussion shortly before halftime.
With the Browns trailing 14-0 at the time, Baker Mayfield made his NFL debut, leading the team to a 21-17 come-from-behind victory. Mayfield would go on to start Cleveland's 13 remaining games, setting an NFL rookie record with 27 touchdown passes.
Appearing in a total of four games last season, Taylor completed 42 of his 85 pass attempts (49.1 percent) for 473 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He also rushed for 125 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 fumbles on 16 attempts.
Despite his lackluster numbers, Taylor's solid track record during his time as a starter with the Buffalo Bills made him a coveted backup quarterback in the free agent market. With Taylor gone, Drew Stanton is currently slated to serve as the primary No. 2 quarterback behind Mayfield on the Browns' depth chart.
