Tyrod Taylor is the NFL star folks have been saying is secretly coupled-up with Draya Michele, but who really knows? What we do know is that Draya “likes” what she sees on his IG page and they’ve been spotted out together on at least one occasion. But WHO is he?

Taylor is a 31-year-old veteran quarterback for the LA Chargers. Last month was taken to the hospital and discharged after suffering a rib injury while playing. To make matters even worse, the Charger’s team doctor accidentally punctured Tyrod Taylor’s lung when trying to administer a pain-killing injection to his rib.

The Chargers QB lost his starter position over the injury — sucks!

Not to feel defeated, Tyrod left an uplifting message to concerned fans to ensuring he’ll “keep striving” despite the setback.

The NFL star got his start playing football for Virginia Tech and lead the Hokies to the 2009 Orange Bowl as a sophomore and in 2011 during his senior year. He was quickly drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft and served as the right-hand man to starting quarterback Joe Flacco. Tyrod helped the Ravens win Super Bowl XLVII over the San Francisco 49ers.

Just a few days before he was injured, Draya was spotted in his comments leaving a heart-eye emoji.

Tyrod is a role model. The quarterback says his mission is to “inspire change.” Currently, the 31-year-old runs the Tyrod Taylor Foundation aimed at supporting underserved communities through education.

He loves fashion and sporting some hefty runway looks too. Taylor has been showing off his epic clothing collection in a series called T2Style. Whether he’s dressed down in a black blazer or showing off his muscles in leisurewear, the Charger’s star still looks handsome!  He was also featured on Sports Illustrated’s “Fashionable 50” list in 2018.

Tyrod owns an eyewear line for men in collaboration with Frame Genie. His “T2” collection ranges from classic rectangular tortoise styles to red retro aviators.
