Seven months after tearing his ACL Brandon Taylor is healthy and ready to compete to be the starting Strong Safety for the San Diego Chargers. Ummmm yeah. So I guess I was wrong. Richard and Gehlken were right. Brandon Taylor is back and I'm assuming he will compete with Marcus Gilchrist for the starting Strong Safety position. Taylor a third-round selection by the San Diego Chargers in the 2012 NFL Draft tore his ACL in his first NFL start against the Jets on December 23 2012.
