NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the move is similar to agreed-upon deals for quarterbacks Cam Newton and Jameis Winston at their respective teams.
Taylor has yet to say much about the new deal, but did post a message on Twitter that read, “It’s a long story, I been busy working #Keep5triving …”

During the 2020 season, Taylor was picked as the starter for the season for the Los Angeles Chargers but suffered a punctured lung before week two. The injury was due to a pain-reducing injection the QB had for a rib injury, CBSSports.com reported.
Taylor only ended up taking a single offensive snap for the rest of the season, finishing 16 of 30 for 208 yards in the one start, the outlet noted.
