(fantasypros) Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn told Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio that the team did in fact explore the option of bringing in Cam Newton after Philip Rivers left in free agency and prior to drafting Oregon QB Justin Herbert.

Analysis: "Absolutely, Cam is a tremendous quarterback," said Lynn. "He's been MVP of this league, he's led his team to the Super Bowl and he's healthy now from what I hear. Cam is going to be on somebody's roster and he's going to help somebody win a few games, but yeah, we did take a look at that, sure." While Lynn gave Newton a lot of credit, he also expressed confidence in his quarterbacks, including starter Tyrod Taylor. "I feel really good about the quarterback room that I have," he said. Taylor will turn 31 this off-season, and the team will surely be handed over to Justin Herbert in a couple years, but for now, it's Taylor's job to lose and he'll get every opportunity to succeed in the near future. As for Newton, Lynn seems confident he'll land on his feet somewhere in 2020, even if that means joining a team as a backup.
